What you'll do

Spend a weekend immersed in the rich history, deeply rooted tradition, and constantly evolving art-scape of northern New Mexico. We’ll weave our way through Santa Fe and beyond, taking a behind-the-scenes tour of Santa Fe’s artist studios, exploring an adobe farmhouse replete with new media art, and learning the ins and outs of crafting traditional Pueblo pottery. Alongside local artists and tribal members, we’ll delve into the region’s history and heritage, joining our host for a homemade feast-day style meal, dipping our fingers into the healing soil of El Santuario de Chimayo, and satisfying our palates with some famously sweet and smoky heirloom Chimayo peppers. This trip is offered by Atlas Obscura. Once you've reserved your spot, our team will be in touch to help you prepare for the trip. Please note that flights to and from Santa Fe are not included in the trip cost. This trip is limited to 12 travelers.
