Overview

The Lower Gorge section of the Rio Grande is the most popular intermediate and family friendly day trip in northern New Mexico. Enjoy a morning spent calmly floating the beautiful Orilla Verde scenic float section and then after a tasty riverside lunch head downstream into the fun and exciting class III rapids of the Racecourse section. Those who want to spice this trip up a little can choose to paddle their own inflatable kayak!

Itinerary

Guests will meet at 8:15am at our Far Flung Riverside location, check in, and then shuttle upstream to our launch point. Our morning is spent floating down the Rio Grande through the towering volcanic canyon, keeping an eye out for wildlife and enjoying a few class I-II rapids. At noon we’ll provide a delicious riverside lunch on the Far Flung beach at our Riverside property. In the afternoon the river will plunge into the Racecourse, our most popular whitewater half-day section. Enjoy infamous class III rapids such as Albert’s Falls, Big Rock and Sousehole! We will plan to have you back to your vehicles around 3pm. For what to wear and bring, check out our FAQs.
