The Orilla Verde Float
This is the perfect trip for everyone in the entire family or those who just feel like a lazy float down the river. It also affords us time to practice paddling techniques, swimming and simply enjoying the Rio Grande.Toward the end of the trip we will float through the historic village of Pilar before continuing through some fun class II rapids and on to our take-out.
We start at our headquarters where you’ll meet your New Mexico white water rafting guides for the day who will outfit you with all the gear necessary for the day on the river. At the headquarters, clean restrooms, changing rooms, shaded picnic tables on our patio rooms and any last minute items you might have forgotten including sunscreen, water shoes, hats and much more. This is the perfect place to start your adventure. After the short drive to the starting point in our vans, your river trip begins with a placid float through one of the most scenic parts of the canyon with great opportunities to see a variety of wildlife including mule deer, river otter, beaver and many different birds of prey.
