What to Pack

Excited about your visit? So are we! Here are some tips about what to bring along:
  • Comfortable clothing for hiking, biking and other outdoor adventures—lightweight, non-cotton layers work best in the high-desert climate of Santa Fe
  • Rain jacket for the occasional cloudburst
  • Fleece, sweater or jacket for cool evenings
  • Hiking boots or trail shoes with good traction (and appropriate socks)
  • Padded cycling shorts
  • River shoes, such as Chacos or Tevas, for rafting and fishing
  • Sunglasses and sunscreen
  • Sun hat or visor
  • A hydration pack and/or a backpack
  • Camera and film

In winter, please also pack several warm layers (synthetics, wool and fleece work best), warm non-cotton socks, a water-resistant outer layer, and a warm hat and gloves in addition to the above.


Summer weather in Santa Fe is consistently mild, sunny and dry. We have an average of more than 300 days of sunshine per year. Daytime highs range from the upper 70s to low 90s and nighttime lows are generally in the 50s and 60s. Monsoon season, July and August, brings afternoon thunderstorms that pass quickly.

Winter weather is also generally sunny and mild: Daytime highs range from the 30s to 50s, with nighttime lows in the teens to 20s. We receive snowstorms, especially between February and April, though the snow in town typically melts quickly. For more specific forecasts, visit


At 7,000 feet and more above sea level, the Santa Fe region is a high-altitude destination. Visitors are advised to take it easy upon arrival. Drink plenty of water and watch your alcohol intake (one drink here is the equivalent of three at sea level). Some travelers experience headaches or other altitude-related symptoms during the first day of their visit.

Release Waiver

All guests must review and sign a release waiver prior to their participation in the program.


Do other companies offer the same services as Santa Fe Mountain Adventures?

Santa Fe Mountain Adventures is unique in providing outdoor adventure integrated with holistic and cultural programming. Our innovative program—which combines active sports like hiking, whitewater rafting, horseback riding and mountain biking with cultural and soul-nourishing activities like cooking classes, arts and culture adventures—is unlike anything else in northern New Mexico. We turn unique individual activities into a total adventure experience.

Does the program fee include lodging?

The program fee does not include lodging. Guests can stay at one of our Partner Hotels or anywhere they wish in Santa Fe, maximizing choice for participants in our program.

Why should I stay in a Partner Hotel?

By staying in one of our luxurious Partner Hotels and participating in our program, guests receive the most convenient transportation from their hotel to our adventure venues, and outstanding dining and spa services in their hotel.

How long should I stay?

We recommend a stay of three days or more to more fully sample the adventures offered in our program, but a stay of any length is beneficial.

Can children participate in the program?

We offer a family adventure program for families with children age 4 and up. Activities in this program include stargazing, mountain treasure hunts, float trips and family cooking classes.

Who will be leading my adventures?

Santa Fe Mountain Adventures outings are led by accomplished local guides who are intimate with the outdoor playgrounds of northern New Mexico. Many of them also have experience in guiding for nationally known outdoor leadership schools. Our guides share their extensive knowledge about the activities and settings we explore and are well-trained and certified in first aid. For some activities where guides require specialized experience, such as fly-fishing and whitewater rafting, we have partnered with leading outfitters to host our guests.

Is it fun to be outdoors in Santa Fe in the winter? Is it cold, like Colorado, or warm, like Arizona?

Although summer and fall are the most popular times to visit Santa Fe, many residents actually prefer winter. The frequent, albeit brief, dustings of snow give town a charming feel, and the climate is mild enough to make winter outings fun and adventurous, not brutal and tooth-numbing. Northern New Mexico’s climate is somewhere between Colorado’s and Arizona’s - sunny and appealing during most days but cold enough to snow and therefore to ski and snowshoe.

Where are the pickup and drop-off locations for the morning adventures and other remote activities?

Guests in our program are picked up and dropped off outside our Partner Hotels, all close to or in Santa Fe.

What is your cancellation policy?

Cancellations for leisure guests made within one week of the start of the program forfeit the deposit (one day's fee) that we hold at the time of the reservation. Cancellations made more than one week in advance receive a full refund. Group programs usually have a one month or longer cancellation period.

Will I need to sign a release waiver to participate in the program?

All guests must review and sign a release waiver prior to their participation in the program.
