High in the Rocky Mountains of New Mexico lies a hidden gem. From its sparkling headwaters to its confluence with the mighty Rio Grande, the Rio Chama carves a valley of scenic beauty second to none…   

Nestled in the southern Rockies at 7,860 feet elevation, Chama is what one might consider a “best-kept secret.” ​Towering mountain peaks, scenic vistas and deep, colorful gorges grace every direction; Chama is a diverse valley region famous for its art treasures and natural beauty stretching south from the Colorado border to the Tierra Amarilla Valley and down to Abiquiu. Many cultures call this water-blessed land home, and the region offers visitors a chance to sample genuine local New Mexican cuisines, unique cultural events, and colorful artisan wares.

​​Crowds are smaller here, and the attractions are grand! For the history buff, art lover, nature enthusiast, and cultural explorer, the Rio Chama Valley offers boundless opportunities.
