EXPERIENCE DETAILS

Highlights

  • Three day Taos getaway with flights on a private aircraft
  • Airport transportation in Taos
  • Luxury accommodations at El Monte Sagrado
“The month was September, and the fertile valley a beautiful sight, and inspiration for those who ply the brush for happiness.”

These thoughts of Ernest L. Blumenschein upon first seeing Taos, New Mexico were thanks to a wagon accident that stranded him and his friend Bert Philips in 1898. After three days waiting on a repaired wagon wheel, they abandoned their original travel plans, set up a studio and began to paint — eventually forming the Taos Society of Artists and defining Taos as an art colony.

Today, the highly-unique, vibrantly-colored and environmentally-inspired work of the Taos Six, lives on through the artists still working in the valley that Blumenschein, Phillips and others were enamored by more than 100 years ago. Now home to a world-class ski resort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a delicious organic dining scene, all set in the majestic Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Taos will draw you in with its small town charm and big cultural personality. 

Take the opportunity to meet with artists in their homes and studios during your three-day, two-night immersion in this world-renowned art colony. Stop by Blumenschein’s original gallery, now the studio of local painter Rich Nichols, or tour the Millicent Rogers Museum and learn about how Taos’ rich southwestern heritage influenced the art.

Additionally, explore the landscape and history that has served as inspiration for thousands of artists. Get the chance to hike within the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument, or tour through neighborhoods of multi-story adobe buildings that have been continuously inhabited for over a thousand years at Taos Pueblo.

Staying in the heart of Taos at the El Monte Sagrado, where the well-appointed rooms are complete with private balconies featuring garden views, you’ll find yourself absorbed into the peace and beauty the community has maintained throughout the centuries.

FAQ

What is the $250 credit and what can it be applied to?
The $250 credit is given to each traveler and can be applied towards any activity in Taos.  For instance, select from an afternoon guided hike, a private guided art walk, or an afternoon at the hotel spa, the choice is yours.  Please notify your Manifest Representative ahead of time how you would like to use your credit and we can assist with making reservations.

What if I purchase art on this trip, can I take it home with me?
If the items fit in your suitcase, then it’s no problem transporting on the plane.  However, if the items are too large, then it will have to be shipped back.  Please contact your Manifest Representative and they can arrange shipping for you.

Should I be concerned about altitude sickness when visiting Taos?
Altitude affects people in different ways and with Taos being at almost 7,000 feet of elevation, it can certainly come into play.  We recommend that travelers hydrate before and during the trip, take it easy on strenuous activity the first day, and avoid overconsumption of alcohol.  If you are typically prone to altitude sickness, we also recommend bringing medication.
