Taos | Far Away from the Everyday
Get your glamp on in Taos and immerse yourself in Taos’ grandeur! Experience the glorious and majestic Sangre de Cristo mountain rimmed horizon with a high elevation air and sky that makes it seem like you can touch the stars. Fill your senses with fragrant sagebrush after a summer monsoon and watch for rainbows arching across the sky. Scour the dark night sky for meteor streaks and take in a star filled expanse of the Milky Way. All while glamping this rugged landscape in an all-inclusively equipped and thoughtfully prepared tour that anticipates your comfort and enjoyment.
Your intention will be to receive, slow down, be inspired, and nurture yourself while exploring Taos’ wild environments.
This is your journey to CONNECT to the earth, water and sky. To focus on your breath and deeply BREATHE in the clean fresh air, while doing outdoor yoga. To ENERGIZE on the hiking trails that meet at the merger of the mystical Sangre de Cristos, the Rio Grande Valley and New Mexico’s Colorado Plateau. To INDULGE in the organic yet lavish elements of farm to table crafted meals and luxurious glamping tents.
Plus, one thing about our Chaco Canyon Glamping tour that amazes all of our guests, is the astoundingly crisp clear non-light polluted sky. As artificial light increasingly lessons our ability to commune with the Milky Way and our glowing star-filled Earthly ceiling, most of us have lost an important astronomical connection. Thus, we had the dazzling idea to incorporate undiminished star viewing, with possible flashes of meteor brilliance, by scheduling all of our Taos Glamping tours with the new moon, while the August tour will have the added benefit of the annual Perseid Meteor Shower.
The Perseids are perhaps the most popular meteor shower of the year since they fall in the height of summer and for 2018 it is projected that at least 60-70 meteors will fall per hour, and perhaps as many as 150-200. But worry not, even if you can’t make the August tour dates, we’ve ensured the new moon and dark sky phenomenon with our other tour dates, so you’ll not only have chances to commune with the stars but may still see streaks of lighted brilliance.

Your Two Night | Three Day Overview
DAY ONE | Journey into the Rio Grande Valley
On day one, we’ll meet at 2:00 pm in Taos at the El Monte Sagrado Resort’s lobby. We’ll pick you up and drive you out to the edge of the Rio Grande Valley, where you’ll be astounded to see the Rio Grande Gorge in all her glory. This stunning 50-mile-long and 800-foot-deep tectonic chasm literally appears to have fractured the earth and split her in two.
Enjoy the first evening adapting and acclimating to the high desert, above 7,200 ft, in the Rio Grande Del Norte National Monument, on the edge of the Rio Grande Gorge Valley. You’ll soak in the sunset with a yoga class, indulge in a nourishing farm to table style meal, and then overnight in a luxury canvas glamping tent among wild fields of sagebrush. In Native American beliefs, sagebrush purifies both spirit and space, so let the fragrant sagebrush saturate your senses and provide some pinon aromatherapy.
Then, with the incredible Milky Way ribboned above your head, watch the sky for meteors and puzzle out the constellations.
Savor. Connect. Indulge the Night Sky.
DAY TWO | Hiking & Yoga in the Rio Grande Valley
We start our day with a hike into the Rio Grande Valley and learn about this dramatic geological rift zone of ancient basalt. As you switchback into its belly, you’ll walk out to the confluence of two major rivers that have sculpted the massive boulders on the river’s edge. Enjoy your packed lunch on the trail next to old growth Ponderosa Pines, with the massive canyon walls echoing the sound of the Rio Grande. Today’s hike sets an intention to immerse yourself in this wild landscape while unwinding from your daily life.
Following our hike, we travel to our glamping camp and enjoy free time with canyon views before a restorative yoga class to stretch any tightness from the hike. Then we indulge in tasty, healthy appetizers and drinks!
Before dinner, you’ll be tasked to collect sage and pinon to make your own smudge stick. A smudge stick aligns with our Taos Pueblo heritage. Smudging or the burning of sacred herbs is a common practice in many healing ceremonies and shamanic traditions and it’s used as a way of purifying and/or cleansing a space of negative energies or influences. This vibrational energy protects the physical and spiritual bodies, while the fragrance releases healing properties, and is often used in ceremonies. Your herbs will be tied into a bundle and allowed to dry to make a “smudge stick” for you to take home.
Savor. Connect. Indulge the Night Sky.
DAY THREE | Stand Up Paddle Board on Lake Abiquiu
Rise and Shine! Enjoy a morning power breakfast before we set out towards Georgia O’Keeffe Country for our Stand-Up Paddle (SUP) board lesson on Lake Abiquiu. We’ll immerse ourselves in the edge of the Colorado Plateau where the colored earth has inspired so many artisans.
Meet our guides at Lake Abiquiu for our SUP boarding adventure. Enjoy your connection to water while paddling within a landscape rich with color and texture. This is your opportunity to receive energy from the lake as you and your board navigate the placid waters.
Savor a delicious picnic lunch following our Stand-Up Paddle Board experience overlooking the lake before we make our way back to Taos for our farewells with 2:30 pm return at Taos’ El Monte Sagrado Resort.
We know Taos will touch you, inspire you, and make you surrender to her higher, unspoken but deeply felt, calling.

Glamping is our new passion because it combines remote outdoor experiences, with luxurious camping facilities, so you do not have to forsake pleasure and comfort while experiencing our great, but hard to reach, outdoor locations. It’s a way to experience the untamed and completely unique parts of the world, like in the Rio Grande Gorge and Valley, without having to sacrifice creature comforts. You can enjoy a fusion of glamour and camping, glamping, while authentically experiencing the most awe-inspiring night sky of the Taos Plateau in a luxurious canvas bell tent, with non-camplike amenities, such as foam mattress on your raised wooden bed-frame, bedside table and butterfly canvas chairs. Glamping in luxury while doing sunset yoga, eating farm to table fresh meals, and connecting within and without – it can’t get much better than that!
