Rio Chama Multi-Day


A deluxe 3 day, 2 night float through the Wild and Scenic Rio Chama Wilderness.

The Ultimate Unwind

Guided oar rafts are the primary craft used to travel the 31 mile stretch of the Rio Chama through beautiful Northern New Mexico, but inflatable kayaks are available if you want to paddle your own boat. Your guides set up camp on the banks of the river and provide made from scratch meals. The river meanders through rich Ponderosa Pine forests for the first 20 miles and then opens up into the enchanting Ghost Ranch desert. This is truly an unforgettable trip that will find a special place in your memory and heart.
