About Los Rios River Runners
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 has been running high this year so a late in the year run was the perfect thing to do. The racecourse is a great short run, wish we had the time to do the box. Los Rios guides are the best.

So glad all camera, billfolds, cellphones were not in the raft. Exciting even when you are almost ejected. Wonder if the staff would have jumped in and helped if there was a man over board!

My wife and I did the Racecourse AM trip and absolutely loved every minute of it. The river was flowing at 1300 CFS (normal for late July is 300-400) so the rafting was great! Our guide, Seth, was funny and entertaining, as well as a...More
