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. « less

We just took a late season rafting trip on the racecourse portion of the Rio Grande. Our guide, Patrick, did an awesome job! Loved the whole experience, when I go back to New Mexico I will float Los Rios River Runners again! Thanks for an awesome time!!!

This trip was the highlight of our excursion on 10-11-13!! We traveled to Taos from Texas. I monitored the weather a month in advance hoping it would be nice enough to raft. We were hesitant after we got snow in Chama the day before. After SEVERAL phone calls to Los Rios we were convinced.....cold, rain, snow we were going!!! Kyla... More

This was truly an incredible experience. My wife and I (37 years old and 35 years old) opted for the half day Racecourse offering and went with the boats rather than funyaks. Initially I felt that I had undersold myself by going with the boat since my wife and I are active individuals, my wife even competes in Ironman Triathlons,... More

We did the Racecourse half day trip and loved it. We are a family of four and our daughters are 13 and 11. Knowing that the water level would be low this time of year, we opted for two-person Funyaks instead of rafting. My wife and I each took one of our daughters in our inflatable kayaks. Suzie was our... More

We were hesitant to take young children on a whitewater rafting trip but Los Rios River Runners heard our concerns and reassured us that the Pilar Race Course would be age-appropriate, esp. when the water wasn't running as high as it does earlier in the summer. (They also recommended the afternoon trip, where it would be a little bit warmer.)... More

I never post reviews on TripAdvisor but I had to write a review given the amazing experience we had with Los Rios River Runners. My husband, myself and 2 kids (age 9 and 13) did the double racecourse. Our guides Brian and Dillon were AMAZING! They connected with the kids right away and went through a thorough safety lesson.

We used Los Rios to takes on an half-day trip down the Rio Grande. Our guide was full of information. She was very personable and very funny. She kept us safe and even pulled me back in the raft when I fell out. We all had a laugh. The water was cool and refreshing. Too bad I was the only... More

Los Rio River Runners live up to their name! Our guide Sherry was obviously having fun showing us the Rio Grande River flows and rapids and while regaling us about the 'big bang' shift of underwater plates that created its impressive gorge. This gorge is only one of three in the world, but the real reason not to miss the... More

Awesome time! We will do it again for sure! We had our kids (5,8,10 years old) and it was a perfect adventure for them. We would recommend this trip to anyone visiting the Taos/Red River area in the summer.

What a fun trip! We took the afternoon trip down the river. We had a good group, and John, the guide, was pure entertainment. We highly recommend going with this company.
