Pristine Nature

Once you arrive in Santa Fe, the highest capital city in the United States, it's obvious that you're not in Kansas anymore. Courtesy of its high altitude, the City Different enjoys 320 days of sunshine, all four seasons, brilliant blue skies and some of the purest air in the world.

Santa Fe sits 7,000 feet above sea level in the southernmost Rocky Mountains and has 12,000 foot mountain vistas. It's tucked into a valley of the Rio Grande, surrounded by 1.5 million acres of unspoiled national forest filled with juniper, pine and aspen.

To admire Santa Fe's natural beauty, don't miss our magnificent sunsets and star gazing. Explore more than 30 miles of scenic hiking trails all year round. In the winter, enjoy Ski Santa Fe, ice skating and snow shoeing. The summer brings biking, horseback riding and rafting as well as competitive and fun runs.
