About the South West Adventure Caravan

The 2019 Southwest Adventure Caravan will be in August, September, and October capturing the stunning beauty of the fall landscapes. Beginning in Albuquerque, NM, we will discover Santa Fe by trolley, savor local cuisine and then visit Taos. What is around the corner in the Four-Corners region of CO, UT, AZ, and NM, other tourists may not usually see. We visit Indian pueblos, reservations to learn about their cultures from Native guides. The grandeur of the scenery will amaze you as we ride a narrow gauge train up to Silverton, Colorado, hike to the “Palace” in Mesa Verde, or truck into Monument Valley. Moab, Utah, provides gorgeous views in the surrounding National Parks and excitement with “slick-rock riding” in ultimate jeeps. Whether using a camera at Capitol Reef National Park or riding a mule into Bryce Canyon, the parks will captivate you.   After seeing the North Rim of the Grand Canyon we’ll spend four days beside Lake Powell, enjoy a boat trip on the lake, a Colorado River raft float trip and a tour through Antelope Canyon. Our final two weeks will take us to New Mexico to explore  Gallup, Acoma, and Albuquerque. We will have a chance to ride in a hot air balloon before our final stop (in Gallup) at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. America the Beautiful Senior passes (formerly the Golden Age Pass) will save you dollars for fees in Mesa Verde, Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef, Arches, Canyon lands, and North Rim of the Grand Canyon National Parks. Come prepared to have fun with your fellow caravanners!  Note:  This is an active caravan which travels through altitudes of 4000 to 8000 feet elevation.  Anyone with health issues related to high altitudes should be aware that this caravan involves activities in some high altitude areas.


The 2019 caravan will be taking 28 rigs and currently have 28 on the list with 44 on the stand-by list.
