Float the Rio Grande on a stand up paddleboard (SUP) to an off the beaten artist’s hand-carved cave, primarily accessed by water. A 3-4 mile float, towards the end you will bank the SUP and your guide will walk you to the easily accessible underground masterpiece that is featured in the Documentary, Cave Digger, with an in-floor 4 foot drum, hand crafted bathtub, nicho seats carved into the stone walls, and an erotic carved bedroom piece. An incredible work of art that took 2 years to build, this site is not to be missed and is not open to the public. After exploring, return to your SUP to finish your float. The SUP float is guided and downstream without facilities available. Recommended to bring water, snacks, plenty of sun protection, and water shoes. A shuttle picks you up at the Taos Plaza.

Rise early to ride the soft desert air. The views of Taos, NM from hot air balloons are indescribable and not to be missed! Our experienced crew and FAA certified pilots are personable, knowledgeable and entertaining. Our balloon flights soar above Taos and the Sangre de Cristo’s, catch the breeze over the Rio Grande River, and gently flow south into the Gulf of Mexico. After the flight we celebrate with the traditional champagne (or sparkling cider for our younger guests) toast, where you’ll be presented with your official Flight Certificates. The flight lasts about an hour, but the memories will last a lifetime.
Taos Vortex is conveniently located outside of downtown Taos and within walking distance of great lodging options.
