If you are seeking outdoor sports and activities to experience the peaceful beauty of the area and breathe some of the cleanest air in the country, Santa Fe has a lot to offer. Pristine forests in the Sangre De Cristo, Ortiz and Jemez mountains surround the city and the Rio Grande, Pecos and Chama rivers are nearby. There are opportunities for hikers, mountain bikers, skiers, snow boarders, snowshoers, river rafters, fisherman, and horseback riders. You can participate in these activities at your own pace or use one of the many Santa Fe based activity operators to organize a trouble-free outdoor experience.
If you just want a peaceful stroll in the Santa Fe green-belt, check out the RiversidePark or the RandallDaviesAudubonCenter. There are several firms offering horseback riding and even a llama trekking company. The nearby rivers have some of the best fly fishing in the country and spring and summer are excellent times for river rafting, whether its the thrill of whitewater rafting (Class 4 and 5) or a leisurely float trip. There are even opportunities to fly the magnificent blue skies of the Southwest in a hot air balloon ride or a more adrenaline-filled soaring and gliding experience.
