New Mexico Adventures

Exclusive Activities, Tours, Artist Demonstrations and Excursions

When you stay at a Heritage Hotel & Resort we want to make sure you have the best and most authentic New Mexico experience possible. We've partnered with a number of different local partners to provide you with a variety of Santa Fe, New Mexico adventures to enhance your stay with us. 


Winter brings a special beauty to the high deserts of New Mexico. High snowcapped peaks of the Sangre de Cristos outside Santa Fe and Taos set against deep blue skies set a beautiful backdrop for a wonderful winter drive.

Fall in love with the landscape as you travel along The High Road to Taos, considered by Travel + Leisure as one of the country's best winter drives. The High Road winds through the beautiful high desert, deep forests where a dusting of snow may be found under the shade of tall trees, and caprivating mountain countryside as it passes through numerous historic communities, like Chimayo. Complete the journey back to Santa Fe along The Low Road, which follows the Rio Grande, affording picturesque river views. Both routes pass wonderful wineries, unique artisan shops and historical points of interest. Follow the routes here.
