Your vacation in Santa Fe, New Mexico shouldn't be just limited to the city limits. Santa Fe is in one of the most pristine forest and mountain settings of any major city in America. Surrounding Santa Fe are numerous opportunities for mountain climbing, skiing, river rafting, even exploring archaeological digs.

The Sangre De Christo Mountains

There are many hikes in the Sangre de Christo mountains surrounding Santa Fe, with several 12,000-13,000 ft. peaks. Further afield is Sandia Mountain in Albuquerque and Mt. Taylor in Grants, at 11,301 ft. Taos has a world-class ski resort.

Taos also is a popular starting point for river rafting and white water rafting, with many companies operating in the area. In the Moreno Valley of the Sangre de Christo mountains, Angel Fire is a year-around resort offering boating and fishing, hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding in summer and skiing and snowboarding in winter. And the archeological sites of Chaco Canyon and Bandelier National Monument merit more than one day of exploration.

Even if you're exploring these outlying regions, lodging in Santa Fe is most practical. The New Mexico terrain is rugged and vast areas are separated by mountains and deserts. Santa Fe hotels and bed and breakfast locations will provide the most convenient Santa Fe lodging as a hub for all your activities.
