Are We Born to Wander? 


"Hope lies in the very nature of travel. Travel entails wishful thinking. It demands a leap of faith, and imagination, to board a plane for some faraway land." -Eric Weiner

About Us

Adventure Travel is southern New Mexico's only full service travel agency offering custom-tailored, personally guided tours. That means itineraries that are not copied from a catalog and destinations that are meant for travelers, not tourists. Most of our tours are so exclusive that our groups get their own buses and our guides have historical and cultural certifications.


We have been providing adventures since 1978, and for the past forty years we’ve always said, “We don’t just go there, we know there.” This may be the first year you decide to go on an Adventure Travel tour, and if so, welcome! If you’ve experienced our level of service before, welcome back!


We’ve had forty years to map the world of travel and we still have a lot of adventures in store. Whether it’s Italy, the Rhine, Mexico, Israel or the Alaskan wilderness, we have the perfect adventure for you. So, where in the world are we going?
