Heritage Inspirations Guided Tours in Taos

Heritage Inspirations Guided Tours

To the west of Taos, a vast plain covered with sagebrush and conifers spreads out as far as the eye

can see. This large expanse of land is dissected by the Rio Grande gorge, which cuts an 800-foot, meandering chasm across the plateau.

From the edge of this gorge, the view of Taos and its towering mountain backdrop is simply spectacular. As a result visitors come here year round to enjoy a variety of exciting outdoor activities.
