Why Choose NMRA

Why Choose NMRA


We Set the Standard For Rafting in New Mexico

Since our founding, we have consistently offered the most professional, fun and safest river adventures in the area.  We set the bar for Guide Training and each year.  We are proud to have an incredible group of Guides and Staff that offer the highest quality guest service available in New Mexico.  Because of this, we have been lucky enough to be The Highest Rated Rafting Company on both Trip Advisor and Yelp.  Read for yourself what sets us apart from the rest when it comes to planning and enjoying your New Mexico Rafting Trip.

Our River Headquarters

We are the only Outfitter to offer a full-service Headquarters directly across from the river.  We have brought our 25 years of experience working on rivers across the country and around the world to New Mexico.  This broad experience shines through with everything we do and each day it begins at our Headquarters.  Unlike the rest, we offer safe and secure parking with a full-service shop for any last minute items or souvenirs you need.  We offer nothing but the best and newest gear available for both performance on the river and your comfort in mind.   You won’t spend hours crammed into a van or bus because of our proximity to the Rio Grande.  We also are the only company, which has its own photography staff.  We don’t want you to miss seeing any of the action of the day.  Therefore, as soon as you arrive at the Headquarters after your trip, you can view the photos of your trip and even purchase and leave with them right away.

No Nickel and Diming

The last thing you want to deal with while out on a one-of-kind adventure with your friends and family is upselling.  We believe in providing our guests with the best overall experience and service.  Our Guides are consummate professionals that are in tune to your needs and concerns during your adventure with us.  If you are unprepared for certain weather conditions, they will have extra clothes or gear to make the experience better.  During colder months we not only offer, we recommend that you use our wetsuits and/or splash gear At No Extra Charge.  For our Multi-Day Trips, we offer all of your camping gear, including tent, sleeping bags and sleeping pads At No Extra Charge.  We want our guests to focus on the important part of the adventure…The Fun!

Trip Options And VALUE

Each year we custom craft new itineraries and adventures for our returning guests.  There will always be a new trip for you to experience at New Mexico River Adventures.   We were the first outfitter to bring Stand Up Paddleboarding to the Rio Grande and Rio Chama.   As well, we pioneered the remote and challenging Razorblades section of the Upper Rio Grade.  In addition, we have put together the largest selection of unique and exciting Specialty Trips for you to enjoy in New Mexico.

As for value, you won’t find better during your stay in Northern New Mexico.   There is no other outfitter that provides the same overall experience, service, and attention to detail that you will find at NMRA.  We regularly offer discounts and Specials throughout the year so make sure to see our Specials on the Homepage and keep in touch with us through our Newsletter and Social Media for all the latest news!
