Fishing:

Northern New Mexico is home to some of the best fishing in the western U.S. Our numerous rivers, streams and lakes offer anglers the opportunity to experience remarkable scenery while enjoying a great outdoor recreational activity.

Companies such Land of Enchantment Guides and The Reel Life offer guide services for anglers of any skill level.

Biking:

Santa Fe is rated One of America’s Top Mountain Bike Towns by USA Today and a Top Ten Mountain Biking Destination in North America by Singletracks.com. And with good reason. The surrounding mountains and public lands hold an endless variety of trail options with terrain for every skill level making Santa Fe a perfect stepping off point for cycling adventure.

After receiving the Bronze award from LAB, the city worked diligently to improve bicycle facilities and support for cycling which resulted in receiving the Silver Award, in 2013 or 2014. Also, last year Santa Fe was recognized by the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) as a Silver Level Ride Center.
