Taos Rafting Options for Every Level of Adventure

From tranquil waters to pounding river rapids, the Rio Grande and the Rio Chama have adventure waiting around every boulder and canyon cliff. Taos rafting offers some of the Southwest’s most thrilling late spring and summer recreation. Ride the Taos Box under the famous Rio Grande Gorge Bridge as you battle the waves of Class IV rapids or stick with (slightly) smaller Class III rapids on “The Racecourse”.

For a slower pace, the Rio Chama is a sublime excursion into an isolated, beautiful sandstone canyon. Options run from half-day to multiple-day excursions, from evening cruises with shoreside dinner to running world-class rapids.

Break out of the ordinary and experience adventure that eludes the average traveler.
