It’s no wonder why photographers, painters and sculptors—from Georgia O’Keeffe to Ansel Adams—have been drawn here for decades. Santa Fe is endless inspiration. It’s another world—an artist’s world. The city’s influential meld of culture, from Native American to Mexican to Spanish, defines Santa Fe as a beacon of culture, tradition and, perhaps most of all, art.
Santa Fe is an icon of artistic influence unlike any other place in the U.S. Get exclusive access to outstanding private collections, and explore the art scene in and around the city. Meet local and indigenous artists, and venture outside the city to experience the deep-rooted culture and mesmerizing beauty of the landscapes.
Our Santa Fe is for lovers of food, culture and, of course, art. Great for a long weekend getaway or a week-long deep adventure across New Mexico.
September through November is our favorite time to visit. Note that Albuquerque’s annual Hot Air Balloon Fiesta draws significant numbers in October and reservations can get challenging.
Go deeper in indigenous craft and culture, more art, more fine dining, or a mix of everything. Our Santa Fe can be crafted to suit your interests.
While the focus here is art, there are many opportunities to delve deeper into history and indigenous culture. Here are our recommendations:
