Visit New Mexico, USA

Explore Spanish-colonial towns, visit Ancestral Puebloan cliff dwellings and take in deserts and mountains on a tailor-made trip to New Mexico

New Mexico’s landscapes, smorgasbord of cultures and Wild-West history have earned it the nickname ‘Tierra del Encanto’ (‘Land of Enchantment’). Our specialists have explored the state for themselves and fallen under its charm. They’ll suggest ways to spend your time here, based on your interests, whether you’re making a flying visit on a Route 66 road trip or taking a few days to soak up the region.

Getting a feel for its history and culture, you’ll walk through Old-West towns once trodden by legendary outlaws and cowboys, and peer into centuries-old Ancestral Puebloan cliff dwellings carved into the rock at Bandelier National Monument. You can also explore the Spanish-colonial history in Santa Fe, one of the USA’s oldest cities, with its adobe houses and Baroque churches.

New Mexico’s landscapes encompass the snowy-peaked Sangre de Cristo Mountains and the sparkling gypsum-crystal dunes of White Sands National Monument. This breadth of scenery inspired much of Georgia O’Keeffe’s work, and you can view her art in the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe.

Elsewhere, Taos has one of the longest-established American Indian populations in the country. Here, you’ll see traditional multi-story Pueblo houses that have been lived in for more than a millennium. And, you can browse bohemian shops and galleries lining the historic Taos Plaza, a meeting point for trade and local gossip for centuries.
