Overview
More
Los Rios River Runners is New Mexico's oldest, largest, and most experienced rafting company. We've been rafting through the spectacular river canyons of northern New Mexico since 1972. We offer trips from mild to wild, from half-day to 3-days, from the world-class white-knuckle whitewater of the Taos Box (available as a full-day adventure or as part of a multi-day overnight) to family fun adventures and serene floats. Spend starry nights in the serene Chama wilderness, or float along a mellow section of the Rio Grande with a Native Pueblo guide and a traditional feast meal awaiting you at the takeout. Sunset dinner floats too! And check out our multi-sport adventures: rock and raft, pedal and paddle, and paddle and saddle. Los Rios has more access to more stretches of river than any other NM rafting company, and offers the broadest variety of trips. Come boating with us, and take home lifetime memories.

We did the Box Canyon Duckie trip....remote, beautiful, and just enough challenge for a beginner. Saw golden eagle, and lots of big horn sheep...some petroglyphs and beautiful scenery. We were not impressed with Taos overall, but this trip made the stop completely worth while

We had a great time. This was our first time rafting in NM and it was great. Adam was our guide and did a fantastic job. He had great knowledge of the river and safety on our trip.
