Full description

Join a rafting trip that's perfect for the whole family. Suitable for beginners as well as young children and seniors, this tour offers mild whitewater, opportunities for swimming, as well as views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range.

After checking in at the local partner's office, head to the starting point, a private beach with easy river access. Then, set off on the 5-mile journey down the river. With few companies rafting on this part of the river, you'll often have it completely to yourself.
