Taos - Getting there & away
Flying in via Santa Fe, then bussing to Taos, is one of the simplest ways of getting up to this part of the world. Regular flights through the day are available from the Denver hub. There are also 90-minute bus rides from Albuquerque. Train travelers can alight from the Southwest Chief at Lamy and then board a bus for the short trip to Taos.
Many people drive into Taos. If you've got wheels, you can hightail it up the I-25 and be in Taos in less than an hour from Albuquerque, or take twice as long up the beautiful Turquoise Trail. If time is not an issue, make a day of it along the Jemez Mountain National Scenic Byway from Albuquerque via Los Alamos and Santa Fe.
Getting around Taos
The town of Taos is easily navigated on foot, although for areas slightly out of town, the local Chile Line bus is a great option. Car rental is available at the Taos Municipal Airport just west of town. Taxis are available, too, but the most fun will be had by hiring a mountain bike and using pedal power.
