River Rafting

The rivers in our region are famous, appealing to serious river rats seeking whitewater thrills as well as those who prefer to leisurely float along calm waters.

Santa Fe, located just 40 minutes from the Pilar put-in on the Rio Grande, makes an ideally situated base camp. Local outfitters like Santa Fe Rafting Company, Kokopelli Rafting and New Wave Rafting can accommodate all skill levels, from novice to expert. And, as always, Santa Fe’s outstanding hotels and restaurants provide well-earned repose at the end of a long day on the river.
