New Mexico is a hub for all things ADVENTURE! With a gorgeous landscape of alpine desert and scenic rivers, legendary history and culture, and an art scene that spans all ages and styles, this is a truly one- of-a-kind state with endless excitement and opportunities to explore! This NEW Telluride Academy programs takes us to New Mexico for a multi-day, self-supported river excursion down the Rio Chama with Far Flung Adventures. We’ll guide our own inflatable kayaks through the pristine, quiet waters beneath multi-colored sandstone cliffs, spend our evenings at gorgeous riverside beaches and enjoy campfire cuisine beneath a starry sky. Far Flung’s on-river curriculum will teach students how to thrive on the water while keeping themselves and their peers safe. When we take off the river we’ll check into a local hostel and spend a full day visiting world-renowned museums, reveling in the incredible uniqueness of Meow Wolf and admiring native culture. This week-long adventure will leave you with an increased appreciation for regional culture and a perpetual love for the river!
