Description: Los Rios River Runners is New Mexico's oldest, largest, and most...
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 chose the Taos Box day trip as we like to raft the Wild and Scenic rivers. The bus ride to the put in spot in a scenic one and not too far. Our guide was excellent and made sure that everyone got to feel the cold water rushing over the boat. I think all the rapids were at least... More

I took a group of teens on an amazing adventure on the Rio Chama. John Harvey, Che, and Cork made our experience unforgettable. John and Che were knowledgeable guides who not only safely navigated us down the river, but who also added to our enjoyment of the trip. Fellow guides Eric, Anna, and Travis were a blast during camping. We... More

My husband and I just took our first river rafting ever and were lucky enough to have selected Los Rios River Runners. We took the Orilla Verde trip, since I'm a non-swimmer. Our guide was Bruce Graff. Bruce was wonderful, he was so familiar with the terrain, the raft, the history and stories about the river. Bruce was also wonderful... More

We booked with Los Rios last fall and had a great time. We wanted to come back in the spring when the water level was higher. We had the chance to do the Taos box and we are so glad we did! Los Rios had 5 rafts with all ages on this 16 mile trip with class IV rapids .... More

I took my two teenage kids and a friend over Memorial Day weekend to do the famous Taos Box. It was cold but Los rios outfitted us with wetsuits booties and rain gear at no additional cost. The guides were all so enthusiastic and fun. We had Jim who was very skilled and very knowledgable about the beautiful gorge. The... More

I was having back troubles and they accommodated my wife and I so we didn't have to paddle as much. Trenton was our guide and he was very nice and knowledgeable. If I can ever get the time I would like to go back for a multi day adventure! highly recommended outfit!

We loved our sunset float with Los Rios River Runners, top notch guide Miguel. Sonny our chef and Josh. Four New Englanders riding down the Rio Grande in grand style. Only one level 2 rapids on the sunset float, it was perfect for these old goats.

We did the day trip with Oz (Nathan Oswald) and had the best time! Not only was it a great first time rafting for us, but Oz was so knowledgeable on the history of the river, the culture of the area and even fantastic suggestions for sight-seeing after the trip. The day flew by and it was worth every penny!... More

We did the full day, lower gorge rafting trip and just had a great day. We are not experienced rafters, but under Brian's expert guidance, we had an absolutely wonderful trip. It starts off slow and we got a chance to get to know our guide, Brian. He was part historian, geologist, horticulturalist and naturalist. He was knowledgeable about so... More
