24 Hours On The Rio Grande
Overnight Rio Grande Rafting Trip
Are you interested in an overnight Rio Grande rafting trip, but not willing to give up two entire days of your vacation? We have just the trip for you! You’ll meet us at our headquarters at 2p.m. and we will float the scenic Orilla Verde Section of the Rio Grande with an opportunity to catch the gorgeous evening light on the river that most do not have the pleasure of experiencing.
As we settle into our riverside camp, you might opt for an evening hike while we prepare you a meal that will impress your taste buds and leave you ready for stories around the fire. The morning will begin with a hearty breakfast that will fill you up for the day of rapids ahead on the popular class III Racecourse section. We’ll tackle rapids with names like The Maze, Eye of the Needle, Big Rock and the infamous Souse Hole. We will stop mid way for lunch and swimming and finish up in time to have you back at our headquarters at 2 p.m.
Our guides are the best in the business, focusing on safety and guest service as a top priority. All are extremely knowledgeable about the area’s geology, ecology and history and just love being on the river. Many with experience on rivers all over the country and across the globe, I know you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do and will certainly help to make your day on the river the best possible.
We encourage the adventurous folks to consider doing this trip in an inflatable kayak as long as water levels permit.
This overnight Rio Grande rafting is perfect for first timers or those whitewater enthusiasts who only have a limited amount of time available. It is class II-III (IV at high water) and absolutely perfect for everyone. Minimum age for the Racecourse is 5 (13 at higher water levels).
