Join New Mexico Wild and Quiet Waters Paddling to explore the primitive aspects of the lifeline of New Mexico from Algodones to Corrales (weather permitting). Our experienced guides will provide history and discuss important issues about this gorgeous stretch of the Rio Grande River. Enjoy the fall colors along the bosque!

Covering a stretch of river that encompasses the area the Coronado campaign wintered in 1540, this adventure will put in among a beautiful stand of cottonwoods in Algodones, then traverse approximately 9 1/2 miles of remarkably secluded Rio Grande valley. The upper section of this trip passes through Santa Ana Pueblo and features fascinating volcanic topography and two small, Class I rapids. Flows above 1200 cfs may create occasional Class II conditions.
The «Abreviar» version stops at Bernalillo, while those choosing to continue for the additional hour experience the Rio changing character as it widens and slows, offering a taste of the «Bosque» tours. Higher flow levels (above 1500 cfs) may allow exploration of several secondary river channels, while riverbanks dominated by majestic old-growth cottonwood open regularly to reveal spectacular views of the Sandia mountains.


Cost: $75, including canoe, kayak, or inflatable kayak, gear, guides, light lunch, and shuttle. 4-5 hours.
