More About Santa Fe

Situated in the upper Rio Grande Valley at roughly 7,000 feet above sea level, Santa Fe offers the best of the capital city’s laid-back western plaza charm. The  downtown heart is diversely surrounded by wide-ranging ranchlands, majestic mountains, rolling foothills, river canyons, and sweeping plains. 


Santa Fe is nestled against the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, with the Ortiz, the Sandia, and the Manzano Mountains, visible directly south. Santa Fe is home to a wide range of annual international arts, culture, dance, and music festivals. Directly to the north are the Pueblos of Tesuque, Pojoaque, San Ildefonso, San Juan, and Nambe. Descending in elevation to the south, past La Bajada pass, are the pueblo lands of Cochiti, Kewa (Santo Domingo), and San Felipe.

The scientific community of Los Alamos sits to the west of Santa Fe, in the Jemez Mountains. Espanola and Taos are not far to the north. The largest metropolitan city in New Mexico, Albuquerque, lies roughly an hour’s drive to the south, in the Rio Grande River Valley. 


The Albuquerque International Sunport is New Mexico’s largest commercial airport. Santa Fe Airport offers several competitively priced domestic flights, and is currently under development, and expansion of parking areas. Denver, Colorado is roughly five hours drive to the north. Hultberg and Burgess look forward to sharing their extensive knowledge of Santa Fe, and the surrounding area with you!
