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.

The river was really low, but the Los Rios folks still made the experience fun! There were a few issues: 1) their van does NOT hold 10 people. They expected 10 people in the van and it was very uncomfortable. It isn't a long ride, but we can drive our own cars there and be just as effective. Nonsense on... More

Adam was the perfect guide for our full day on the river at the end of August. We couldn't have had a better time. He was funny and knowledgeable. This wasn't our first great experience with Los Rios and won't be our last.

Right before we got married 12 years ago we took a trip to Taos and did a trip with Los Rios that was great. So when we returned to Taos for vacation we decided we wanted to go again. This time we had our 7 year old daughter with us. The trip we chose was a morning half-day Racecourse trip.... More

Our extended family took a 3-day rafting trip down the Rio Chama with the Los Rios River Runners and it was a wonderful family vacation. The trip was very laid back and comfortable, for us at least. This is probably because it was so well organized and planned out by our guides. The scenery was breathtaking every turn we took... More

My husband and I booked the Race Course trip. It was a great weather day and even tho the river was low it was a great trip. Our guide Eric was awesome! This was our 8th trip with Los Rios and we will do it again. Thanks guide Danielle for convincing us to try the Box next time!

The guides made this a great trip. The river was beautiful, the boats were in great shape and the ride was fun. But it was the careful attention to safety and the fun attitude of Austin and the other guides on the boats that made the trip comfortable and enjoyable.

We were so pleased we chose Los Rios River Runners for our first river rafting experience. We did the full day Lower Gorge trip which included a morning float (great time to get acquainted with rafting, see some beautiful scenery and wildlife) and then the afternoon rapids on the racecourse. In August the water was low so it included class... More
