Half Day

Is your time limited?  Do you want to test the waters for the first time and see what the wonderful world of Taos and Santa Fe Rafting is all about?  A Half Day rafting trip on the Racecourse or Orilla Verde Float might be the perfect choice.  You can choose more or less excitement between these two options in order to accommodate your entire group.  Remember, as the water levels drop, the Racecourse is the perfect class 2-3 trip for virtually everyone ages 5 and up, regardless of individual level of adventure.  Also, a Half Day rafting trip is a perfect way to round out a day trip to Taos if you are staying in Santa Fe or vice versa.  The road between Taos and Santa Fe runs right by our Headquarters and through the river canyon.  Don’t miss out on the perfect dose of wilderness and adrenaline while you’re visiting beautiful Northern New Mexico

This is the most popular rafting trip in New Mexico. This is the perfect trip 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. When the water levels are especially high, we do raise the minimum age as this section grows into an extremely fun and continuous section of class III and IV whitewater. Truly a great trip and its located a mere 1 mile away from our headquarters.
