*This special snowshoe tour is only available in January, February & March*
When was the last time you experienced a calm, serene adventure atop a Desert Mountain Peak?
Join Routes Tours as we venture a ride along Albuquerque’s world-famous Aerial Tramway to the peak of the Sandia Mountains, where our trained naturalist guides lead you by snowshoe through pristine evergreen forests and soft, pillowy snow to panoramic views of the Rio Grande Valley of Albuquerque, the Rocky Mountains of Santa Fe, and the unique volcanic fields of the Jemez!
This will be an adventure like no other, and you will have the photos to prove it!
