Owner description: 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.

I've had the awesome pleasure of rafting the Race Course 2 times in the last 2 weeks. The first trip we went on in late May was fantastic. The water was incredible high and running fast.
Our guide Richie (both trips, we requested him for the 2nd trip as well) is professional, safe and incredibly attentive to his/our surroundings. He explained what he wanted from our rowing and what to do and not do on the raft. Thank you Richie.
The overall experience has been perfect each time. All you folks at Los Rios do great job. Thanks.

Los Rios River Runners are very accommodating. They are definitely professionals. but seen more chilled out compared to some of the other companies we saw. We took four teen girls on the trip and all had a blast. This is our second year rafting with LRRR and plan to go back. Our guide, Austin, was fantastic and we plan to request him again for a third year.

We had a great time on the Race Course of the Rio Grand. Coleman was our guide and our experience couldn't have been better. We have to young boys and he made them feel comfortable and they had the time of their life. This was their favorite part of our vacation.

Thank you so much for rafting with Los Rios River Runners. Coleman is a relatively new addition to the team, he joined us last year from Tennessee, but is a wonderful guide and has that uncanny ability to make everyone feel comfortable and have the time of their lives!! We look forward to rafting with you again in the future.

How good is that!! Well run, organized and terrific warm raft leaders. Moderate rafting with safe but exciting white water. You can even jump in the river near end and float in your life jacket. These half day excursions run $60-65. Per person and well worth it. Great fun!!

I took my 9 yr old grandson on the 3 day Chama River trip - our guides were Suzie & George.
My main goal of this trip was to make it a trip that my grandson would never forget but never mentioned that to our guides before the trip.
Suzie & George made "All My Dreams Come True" !!!!!!!!!!!!!
They were fantastic, they were so great with both of us, so knowledgeable of the area and wildlife, so considerate of the natural beauty and keeping it that way, and most of all making a trip that my grandson will never forget !!!!!
He is still talking about it every minute.
So if you are planning a trip to Northern New Mexico and planning a river trip - don't even consider any other company other than Los Rios River Runners !!!!!!!!!
