HALF DAY OF CULTURE

YOU CAN DO A LOT IN HALF A DAY

To get the full experience of the region, we recommend staying for a few days. Make The Blake your basecamp for adventure and outings.

1. Morning PUEBLO TRIP

Hugging a small branch of the Rio Grande River, Taos Pueblo the only living Native American community designated both a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and a National Historic Landmark. Roughly 1000 years old, the Pueblo Indian settlement is a powerful reflection of the cultural richness of Taos.

2. GUIDED ROCK CLIMBING

Get ready to get your hands dirty and get up close and personal with Taos’s unique geography. Whether you choose to climb over ancient basalt in the Rio Grande Gorge or get higher up in the Rocky Mountains, you’ll get a feel for the diverse topography of northern New Mexico. With over 300 days of annual sunshine, you can rock climb all year long and get panoramic views of the Southwest.

3. AFTERNOON EARTHSHIP TOURS

Earthships have been described as “the epitome of sustainable design and construction.” These buildings may seem surreal and transcendental but they were consciously built with natural and reclaimed materials and use thermal and solar heating and cooling and solar and wind electricity. The people who call them home are happy to share their creations with visitors. Take a tour, or try sustainable living and stay for a night.
