About This Rafting Experience

The best whitewater rafting in New Mexico! Our full-day trip rafting the world-famous Taos Box is the ultimate whitewater adventure, with 17 miles of intense, challenging rapids crashing through the most awe-inspiring part of the Rio Grande Gorge.

The Taos Box is a remote chasm of rugged basalt cliffs plunging 800 feet down to the Rio Grande. This spectacular wilderness was declared by Congress one of the nation's first Wild & Scenic Rivers. Populated by bighorn sheep, river otters, elk, beavers, and mountain lions, it's alive with the cries of ravens, falcons, and eagles. And the echoing roar of world-class whitewater.

With 60 rapids, of which 13 are rated Class 3 and above, the Taos Box is the ultimate whitewater thrill. You don't need to be a top athlete or even have previous whitewater rafting experience – but you do need to be in good physical condition and have a good sense of adventure. This is not a trip for small children or the faint of heart!
