This Rio Grande rafting trip traverses the calm oxbows of the Orilla Verde National Recreation Area and is the most popular float section in New Mexico. The wonderful open canyon allows scenic views of towering basalt cliffs, high desert eco systems and wildlife viewing, a lush riverside habitat, Class II rapids, and plenty of opportunities for swimming and fun. This is a perfect trip for families with young children or groups who are looking for a beautiful, relaxing and fun float
Guests will meet at 8:15am or 12:15pm at our Far Flung Riverside location. Several Class II rapids occur throughout the outing, in between calm stretches perfect for floating and swimming. We will float through the village of Pilar, New Mexico where we will observe a quiet zone to minimize the impact of our passage through this historic, small New Mexico community.
