    Had a Splash! Had a fun filled experience thanks to Austin. He was very knowledgeable and made the trip interesting. Most of all he put up with 5 crazy women on a girls trip.
    Cant wait to take it up a notch and try a more challenging course next time.

  • I highly recommend New Mexico River Adventures! We did a half day race course on a Monday afternoon in August. Although the water was low it was a great experience and wish we had done a full day. Our guide, Erin, was wonderful! She had a great sense of humor, taught us a lot and made the whole experience even better! We now have a new love, appreciation, and respect for the Rio Grande. Thanks to NM River Adventures we have found a hobby our whole family loves and will continue to pursue.

    Just want to say thanks to the entire team at NMRA for an amazing half day adventure on the river on 9/7. John Michael, our guide, was knowledgeable and friendly and the front desk staff were accommodating and helpful. (Special shout out to the gal who emailed me my photos after I lost the thumb drive). From the moment we walked in the door, I knew we had picked the right place! Highly recommend if you're looking for something exciting to do.

The trail climbs 400+ feet into the beautiful mountains surrounding Red River. As you ascend you are rewarded with incredible vistas while peaking through the Big Ponderosa Pines that adorn the hillside. Not only will you enjoy incredible views of the Town of Red River, but also the entire Bittercreek Canyon as well as the famous Red River Ski Area. This is the perfect trip for all ages and experience levels. If you are looking for a short excursion with one of Northern New Mexico’s best Horseback Riding Outfitters, look no further. Here what other guests have said about this tour.

“This horseback tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Red River. The super friendly staff make it fun, and the horses are pure professionals too! The kids all had a blast and even the 6 and 8 year olds got to go on their own horse alone. Both had grins from ear to ear the entire ride. Dirk the owner was wonderful and our two beautiful guides were very informative and led us and our horses on a great ride up and then back down the mountain.”
