Where are we going today?
Are you ready for an adventure!? Because we're in New Mexico, and what better place for a family adventure!
Kokopelli Rafting Adventures have half day to multi day rafting trips down the infamous Rio Grande and Rio Chama Rivers!
You can raft or kayak along the thrills of Class IV whitewater rafting, to the more calm and tranquil Class I canyon floats.
The New Mexico 5 mile half day trips are the most popular on the Racecourse Section. The difficulty changes through the seasons, so make sure you are aware of the grade before you travel! The warmer it gets, the more chances you have for warm-water fun including swimming and boat surfing!
This is a tour that is great for beginners, as well as those more experienced rafters looking for a quick fix. Kids over 7 will love this trip!
The Santa Fe full length rafting trip in Taos Box is a SUPER fun one day wilderness trip with some of the best whitewater rating in the entire state! This 17 mile trip gives you relatively flat and calm water for the first few miles, but then you get more white-water as the gorge deepens. Sounds scary? Nah...you can do it!
Make you feel hungry? Good! Because you have an all you can eat buffet lunch included in your trip! Kids over 12 are welcome to try out this trip, as long as they are quite active and healthy. It can be a challenge!
Kids as young as 4? Check out their Rio Grande Float trips!
If you REALLY love rafting, there are even multi-day rafting trips!
If water isn't your thing, Kokopelli Rafting Adventures have hiking and biking tours for you, so you can stay dry and still experience the excitement of New Mexico!
So turn off those TVs and try something new! Kokopelli Rafting Adventures are just waiting to help you have a great family day out!

I am an active 30 year old and have lived in Albuquerque, NM for years. I have gone rafting with outfitters in Colorado and New Mexico before, and this summer I decided to check out Kokopelli, and I am glad I did. I went on the half-day Racecourse trip and had a blast! Our guides, Tori and Ed, were awesome! Not only were they skilled, but funny, knowledgeable, and professional. They were safety conscience, but still provided us with an awesome trip through some exciting rapids. In fact, I had such a great time on the trip that I decided to go on...Read More

My family and I took a dream vacation to Santa Fe, and on the advice of a local we signed up for a 1-day trip on the Rio Chama. Our guide Justin was amazing -- so funny, knowledgeable, and safety oriented. We loved every minute. I can't wait to go back on the race course when my daughter is old enough.
Me and my friend did a half day in duckies and had a blast! The guides were very friendly, knowledgable, and professional. The duckies were really fun and made the trip more adventureous. I would definitely go with Kokoepelli again and will recommend it to all my friends and family that visit me in Santa Fe.

I just booked for this year. I can't wait to go again. I went last year and had a blast. The crew was great, professional and knowledgeable about the area. Perfect for my family.

I rafted the Taos Box for the first time on June 3, 2014. Talk about an adventure! I didn't really know what I was getting into (Class III & IV rapids), but I had a great time despite being kind of freaked out by all the whitewater. The guides were friendly and super knowledgeable--even though they were all about safety, we had so much FUN! I'll keep going back to Kokopelli and recommend them to everyone I know.

Our guides, Tori and Ed, were awesome! Not only were they skilled, but funny, knowledgeable, and professional. They were safety conscience, but still provided us with an awesome trip through some exciting rapids. In fact, I had such a great time on the trip that I decided to go on the Chama full day with Kokopelli, but opted for an inflatable kayak “ducky”. Although this was a more relaxing, scenic trip, we still went through some fun rapids. Also, I was impressed on the Chama trip that the guides were able to accommodate and entertain a range of people ages 7-65. I would definitely recommend Kokopelli to locals or anyone visiting the area.
