My husband and I had a great all day river rafting and whitewater rafting experience with our guide Ben. We had delicious chicken fajitas for lunch cooked alongside the river. The scenery is beautiful and very peaceful. The white water rafting would have been more fun if the river had been higher, but this time of year it’s just Class 2-3 rapids.

The whole experience. It was so much fun and exciting. It was also relaxing being so close to nature. Watching my grandson making new friends and laughing was so nice to see. Karissa was an amazing and knowledgeable guide. I hope she comes back next year because I would love to ride with her again. Jeanette Garcia~Nambe

Staff was very concerned with safety and thorough with instructions and gear. Our guide, Jade, was a superstar; calm, fun and clear with paddling instructions while attentive to our peculiar needs and stories. The photographer got great action shots which were ready for us on a thumb drive (available for purchase). Though NM River Adventures’ base was an hour+ drive from Red River, it was well worth the trip.
