WHAT TO EXPECT
We will spend two beautiful nights out under the bright New Mexican sky. Wake up each day to a relaxing morning and yoga class designed to appreciate nature. You’ll spend your days running the Rio Chama’s rapids, enjoying the gorgeous views, and spotting the plentiful wildlife as well as plenty of stops for hiking and exploring the many side canyons and vistas along the river. Each afternoon, you’ll arrive at your riverside campsite with plenty of time to relax and hike. As well there will be more yoga offered to relax muscles and ease tension. Then sit back in one of our camp chairs and take in the sunset as the colors of the sky and canyon walls change before your eyes. All while your NMRA guides prepare a special menu to compliment the days’ adventures.
The Rio Chama is one of America’s treasured wilderness rivers. This pristine desert river canyon is a true treasure of the Southwest and we are extremely lucky to have it so close to home. The Rio Chama is best known for its towering desert canyon walls, fun Class II/III rapids, amazing riverside camps, and plentiful wildlife.
