Albuquerque Rio Grande Float

Updated: Mar 24, 2023

Experience Albuquerque from a whole new perspective - on the Rio Grande!

Peaceful water flows, lush green cottonwoods, various bird species, and Beavers slapping their tails will leave you wondering where the desert is. Get out there on a rented kayak or stand up paddle board from the good people at Quiet Waters Paddling Adventures in Bernalillo. These experts can give you the details on where to start and finish depending on how long you want to be on the water. They also offer guided tours! Best time of year is April through June.

In Bernalillo, grab a bite to eat at a local favorite, The Range Cafe. Or enjoy the laid back, open-air atmosphere at Kaktus Brewing Company, New Mexico's #1 sustainable brewery. Their menu includes various healthy options and they serve harder to find items like elk and duck.
