Destination Overview

Your honeymoon in Taos, New Mexico starts the moment you come around a large bend on Route 64, and you see the magnificent Rio Grande River Gorge and the stunning beauty of the Sangre de Cristo mountains surrounding this historic Southwestern town. Laid back, cultural, funky, artistic, quaint, and offering up a myriad of adventurous activities; your Taos honeymoon will bring a lifetime of wonderful memories.

As the locals say, ‘ TAOSMOSIS ‘ can happen to you at an indian pueblo dance, on a ski slope, while you raft down the Rio Grande river, or when you are standing in front of a painting by a Taos master. From snow and sun to high desert and mountain, Taos is Mother Nature’s paradise. Here honeymooners looking for lots of outdoor actives can choose to ski at any one of five ski resorts, hike up Wheeler Peak (13,141 feet at the top!), or experience world class fly fishing in trout-filled rivers that flow into the Rio Grande. Those rivers create a playground for rafting, kayaking, and paddle boarding. For more landlubber honeymooners there’s endless adventure in the high desert mesas, with miles of bike trails and breathtaking vistas.

Bring your camera, because the light and scenery in Taos will create a dazzling backdrop to your honeymoon photo album. Take snap shots of the Alpine village of the Taos Ski Valley, the churches of Northern New Mexico, the ‘High Road to Santa Fe’, the artsy little village of Arroyo Seco, and the ‘don’t miss’ Taos Historic District and Taos Pueblo.

Your honeymoon in Taos will bring you to a year-round destination, unique in the Southern Rockies, where your style of honeymoon can be found among a full range of affordable accommodations, from luxury resorts to cozy bed and breakfast inns, rustic hostels to mountain lodges or even private home rentals.
