May and June are the prime time for whitewater rafting in Pagosa Springs. Warmer weather and earlier peak flows than the rest of the state make Pagosa an early season whitewater destination. River flows typically peak in late May or early June and rafting enthusiasts know that this is when to find the biggest whitewater thrills. By mid-June the average high temperatures rise and river levels drop, the trips become more family-friendly and have less of a whitewater focus. We offer beginner and intermediate trips on the San Juan River in downtown Pagosa, full day advanced whitewater trips on the Piedra River, and overnight trips on the Wild and Scenic Rio Chama in northern New Mexico.
