Ride the Santa Fe Train in 2023

We spend a lot of time talking about all the great things to do in Santa Fe – a topic that’s easy to discuss because there’s just so much to enjoy! From browsing the latest art exhibits and galleries to hiking through the vast expanses of the northern New Mexico deserts, there’s plenty to do here to keep you occupied for days. We can add something new to that list; the scenic Santa Fe Train! 

The scenic Santa Fe Train, also known as the Sky Train, is one of the newer attractions in Santa Fe and takes visitors 18 miles from downtown Santa Fe to Lamy. Like most other top-rated things to do in Santa Fe, the Santa Fe Train is a short walk away from our historic and luxurious Santa Fe Bed and Breakfast

For more than two decades, we’ve delighted in meeting visitors from around the world, treating them to our exceptional brand of hospitality, and helping them enjoy curated activities in and around Santa Fe. We love recommending and sharing our favorites with each person who comes through our doors – and our centralized location to the best of Santa Fe helps us do that with ease!

Ride the Santa Fe Train in 2023

Though 18 miles may seem like a short and quick ride, we assure you the journey on the Santa Fe train is more than worth your time! Not only is the route between Santa Fe and Lamy a historically significant part of Santa Fe’s past, but you expect the journey to be filled with plenty of entertainment, great food and drinks, and plenty of that breathtaking northern New Mexico scenery you love. 

The Santa Fe train picks passengers up at the Santa Fe Depot, located at the popular Santa Fe Railyard – the same place as the weekly Santa Fe Farmers Market. Though any journey aboard the Santa Fe train promises to be fun and scenic, there are several different train experiences to choose from, including the following five options: 

  1. The Santa Fe Scenic ride is the most classic option from the Santa Fe train and is a great 2 – 2.5 hour jaunt into the landscapes surrounding Santa Fe. 
  2. The Sunset Serenade tour on the Santa Fe Train is a 2-2.5 hour journey with a complimentary champagne welcome and a schedule packed with entertainment. Outside your window, you’ll enjoy the landscape transformation before your eyes as the sun begins to set on the high deserts of northern New Mexico. 
  3. If you love history, New Mexico, and trains, then the Lore of the Land ride aboard the Santa Fe Train is for you! It’s a great way to see this gorgeous scenery and learn more about the area and its impressive history as you go through exceptional storytelling. 
  4. There are plenty of great ways to enjoy stargazing in the dark skies of northern New Mexico, but the Stargazer journey on the Santa Fe Train might just be the most interesting! 
  5. Take your date night to the next level with the Cocktails and Rails adventure or perhaps the Margarita Rail ride, both fun ways to enjoy a classic activity with your loved one in an entirely new way. 

These are, of course, just a few of the offerings with the Santa Fe Train. They change throughout the year, so check their schedule for what might be on offer during your next getaway to our Santa Fe Bed and Breakfast.

You can also arrange a private charter with the Santa Fe Train – a great way to celebrate a special occasion! No matter the experience you choose, we’re sure you’ll have a fantastic time aboard the Santa Fe train this year!
