Quaint western towns, like Santa Fe and Durango, meet the famous icons of the Grand Canyon, Mesa Verde and Arches National Parks on this trail into the Southwest's colourful landscapes.
It's Insider moments like… staying in authentic inns and lodges in the great outdoors. In Santa Fe, we stay in luxury at The Inn and Spa at Loretto, with its kiva fireplaces, adobe walls and Native American and Pueblo artwork. In the mining town of Durango, we stay in Old West style at the Strater Hotel, built in 1887. And along the Colorado River, we stay between rapids and rugged cliffs at the aptly named Red Cliffs Lodge. It's also dining al fresco by the river as the sun sets. And it's meeting a local landscape artist at his studio in Santa Fe.
