Nourishing the Magic of Taos

There is something magical that happens when you first set foot in Taos. An organic serendipity is set into motion. In line at the coffee shop you are invited to join an H.I. Walking Artisan Tour. On the walk you meet a gallery owner who tells you about an open mic event that evening. There, you meet a few local artists, and they invite you back to their studio in the morning for a private viewing and an alpine hike in Taos Ski Valley.

At Heritage Inspirations we understand the flow of organic moments. Unlike many tour companies, we are not here to micromanage your experience. But we also know that you don’t want to spend your vacation in an overcrowded tourist trap. Our travel experiences take out the guesswork, and immediately connect you with the wonder of Taos.

This edition we will explore the many treasures of our region (see our in-house map!) as well as ask the question, “How can travel nourish the magic of Taos?” Here at Heritage Inspirations we have created pint-size tours that support small businesses, engage local and Tribal Member guides, offer locally sourced and sustainable menus, and provide a researched and insightful history of the region. This week we meet with the Karina Armijo Director of Marketing + Tourism for the Town of Taos as we take an in depth look into sustainable tourism.

This discussion is all the more salient as we welcome back the opening of Taos Pueblo and the return of H.I. Taos Pueblo offerings. Join us for our next newsletter when we meet with Ilona Spruce Director of Tourism + Marketing for Taos Pueblo and explore the balance of inspirational, sustainable and culturally sensitive travel. We are very excited that Taos Pueblo is now open, but please respect the fact that Taos Pueblo is a living community and visitor hours may vary due to the needs of the Pueblo.

Charting the Magic of Taos

Now you can fly directly to your Taos H.I. tour from San Diego, Los Angeles, Austin, and Dallas on TaosAir. Begin your adventure sooner as you skip security lines, save time, and enjoy aerial views of the gorge and surrounding mountains. This intimate flight experience is a perfect  bonding opportunity for family reunions, friend gatherings and wedding parties.

Once you arrive in Taos you will want to make the most of your experience. Join us for our Taos Artisan Walking Tour to orient yourself to the artistic traditions of our town. Our tour will definitely pique your interest and you might want to dive a little deeper into the history and culture of Taos Pueblo on our Half Day Cultural Tour led by Tribal Member Guides. We are so excited that Taos Pueblo has re-opened, and we are able to offer these tours again.

After getting a cultural taste of Taos, it is time to enjoy the fresh air and pristine views of our wildlands. Make sure you optimize your time on our active day trips that connect you with the geology and wildlife of the Del Norte National Monument and introduce you to the joy of fishing in favorite local spots.

If you want to make Taos a multi-day adventure for you, you can check out our overnight backpacking experience in the magical Columbine Wilderness coming out on the Gavilan trail of Taos Ski Valley. Your senses will be satiated by babbling brooks, meadows of wildflowers, and mountain views. For a perfect way to unplug we offer our Perseid Meteor Shower Glamping Tour. Come experience our pure night skies set ablaze by the fiery trails of meteors, in the comfort and style that is the hallmark of our  Glamping tours. Go “Luxuriously Wild” with H.I.

It is not too late to make the most of summer and enjoy the cooler temperatures and lush fields of our valley.
