Reconnect with nature, restore your mind and replenish your body during this three-day, two-night retreat in Taos, New Mexico, where daily outdoor activities including hiking, yoga and more in the rugged Sangre de Cristo Mountains will end with gourmet meals and counting the stars at your luxurious glamp-site as the Perseid Meteor Shower reaches its peak each night.
Get your feet wet — literally — with a stand-up paddleboarding trip down the Rio Grande River. Mild or wild, the choice is yours, with lessons available before you start if needed. Your journey will end at the glamping camp, with a sunset yoga practice and a farm to table gourmet dinner.
After dinner, retire to your tent to witness the Perseid Meteor Shower shooting across the astoundingly crisp and clear sky. The Perseids are some of the brightest meteors you can see each year, and as you lean back in the canvas chairs outside your tent, gazing up at a dark sky free from noise and light-pollution, watch them race through the constellations.
Find yourself even farther off the beaten path with a hike in the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument, where the river has carved a stunning 50-mile-long and 800-foot-deep tectonic chasm that literally appears to have fractured the earth in two. Restorative yoga and time for meditation will further deepen your relaxation and connection with yourself and the world around you.
No trip to Taos is complete without a visit to the Taos Pueblo, the only living Native American community designated both a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and a National Historic Landmark. Walk through neighborhoods of multi-story adobe buildings that have been continuously inhabited for over a thousand years, and learn how to bake bread in a traditional horno oven, taking your loaf home with you.
After a final gourmet lunch, you’ll find both your mind and body realigned and focused on the intentions you set during your time far away from the everyday in the magical landscape of northern New Mexico.
