River Day

Updated: Dec 3, 2023

Ride the Race Course or float the Orilla Verde section of the Rio Grande with your own craft, a rented kayak or go with an outfitter. We recommend New Wave Rafting for everything you need! The "Race Course' section of the Rio Grande is known for its continuous Class III rapids, while the Orilla Verde section just above is a calm float good for swimming and wildlife viewing.

Head 25 min up to Taos Mesa Brewing Tap Room in downtown Taos for a local brew and woodfired pizza.
