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 had a family of five - three adults and two kids ages 8 and 9. The children had never been on a whitewater raft trip before, let alone on a river, and our guide Bruce was an extremely experienced guide who made everyone comfortable. We did an AM trip on the Race Course and had a fabulous time, the... More

We were so lucky to get Bruce again as our guide for our 2nd time on the Racecourse! This time we decided to try the funyaks. It was quite an adventure and challenge! Bruce did an excellent job explaining what to do and putting safety first. Everyone at Los Rios River Runners is so friendly that they make even the... More

Che was our guide for the full day Lower Gorge rafting adventure and he was just the BEST! So knowledgable and personable. He is a young Taos native that has been a guide for 4 years and wasn't much older than my sons so it made it really enjoyable for all of us. All of the guides and our bus... More

We decided at late notice to try a raft trip and Los Rios was very quick to respond and find a spot the next day. The crew was friendly and professional but with a sufficient amount of local and informal flavor. Our guide Kim, was very experienced and we were pleasantly treated to helpful technical and geologic information. The river... More

I highly recommend Los Rios River Runners! We had an excellent trip down the river. Our guide, Kim, was so knowledgeable about the river and told us so many interesting stories. She made the trip fun and relaxing! There are lots of companies offering raft trips, but you should definitely choose this one! (And ask for Kim!)

My wife and I just experienced our first whitewater raft trip and couldn't have asked for a better experience. We chose the Race Course with Los Rios River Runners and were lucky enough to have Kim as our guide. She was very professional, had a vast knowledge of all aspects of rafting as well as interesting facts about the Rio... More

We took a 2-3 hour trek on the Rio Grande in July of 2016 and our guide Adam did an outstanding job! The outfitter even provided snacks and drinks at the end when we were all hungry and thirsty. We had an amazing time and would definitely recommend this to any families visiting the area. I recommend bringing a wide... More

The advice about the hat, sunglasses and sunscreen is totally true, that sun can be intense. The go pro is a nice addition to any adventure, when you reserve you can ask for a helmet with a go pro mount and hopefully we can get a helmet to you with a mount already on it, or bring a 3M mount...

Our rafting trip with Los Rios was great. The safety briefing was thorough though helmets were offered as optional. There were about 10 rafts-full of people so the process of getting our gear, briefing, getting photos taken and departure was a bit chaotic. But once my three teen-aged great nephews and I got into our raft, all was well. Our... More
