Day Trips

Taos Box

The Taos Box is the centerpiece of one of the U.S.' first Wild and Scenic Rivers, and a premier Class IV whitewater rafting run situated entirely within the 1000' black lava walls of the Rio Grande Gorge.

The Middle Box Full Day

A scenic Class II-III section of river visited by far fewer people every summer than the popular Taos Box and Lower Gorge. A one-mile hike will take us from the rim of the gorge and into the heart of the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument.

Lower Gorge

A full-day trip within the lower confines of the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument that begins as a scenic float and ends in the Class III whitewater of the Rio Grande Racecourse.

Rio Grande Racecourse

Gear up and get ready for New Mexico's favorite half-day Class III whitewater adventure. This exciting 3-hour tour is our most popular half-day trip, and is perfectly suited to families, groups, first-timers, and those of all ages and abilities!

Stand Up Paddleboard Half-Day

We welcome beginners and experts on this paddleboard float down our Scenic half-day section. The Class I-II rapids of this stretch will take on new meaning as you navigate your way through them on your own SUP.

Scenic Half-Day Float

This Rio Grande rafting trip traverses the calm oxbows of the Orilla Verde National Recreation Area. The open canyon allows scenic views of towering basalt cliffs, high desert ecosystems, a lush riverside habitat, Class II rapids, and swimming.

Rio Chama Full-Day

The Rio Chama in Northern New Mexico is America's Newest Wild and Scenic River. This 8 mile stretch begins beneath a secluded Benedictine Abbey and ends just above Abiquiu Reservoir, where this silty desert river rolls to a halt among the rainbow cliffs of this remote four-courners location.
