Rancho Grande | 3 To 7 Hour Tours

A world away just off the beaten path. 

Ghost towns cast shadows of the historic past.  Ancestral Puebloan ruins and petroglyphs offer a glimpse of life in bygone days.  Painted hills and sea life fossils reveal vast changes through the ages.  And wild horses wander the dry, winding paths of the high desert.  New Mexico Jeep Tours has been given exclusive access to all of this and more on a beautiful 20,000 acre private ranch nestled in the vast, southwest landscape between Albuquerque and Santa Fe.
