The Best Pagosa Springs River Rafting
May and June are normally the prime months for rafting Pagosa Springs and the best time to book a San Juan River guide. River flows typically peak in mid to late May and this is when to find the biggest whitewater thrills. By early-June, the weather gets warmer and river levels drop, making trips more family-friendly. By July the river in Pagosa is normally below rafting flows and we offer Pagosa Springs tube rentals and trips until Labor Day weekend.
