On this trip we partner up with the old cowhands of Rio Grande Stables for the full day adventure of a lifetime! Ride and lunch beside the rim of the Rio Grande Gorge and visit the pristine canyonscape and Class III rapids of the Middle Box. This trip is a Far Flung exclusive!
Start the day with a two-hour guided horseback ride along the rim of the Red River Canyon to its confluence with the Rio Grande Gorge, where you will meet your raft guides, who will have a fresh and homemade lunch prepared for you. While you enjoy your meal the guides will pack the rafting equipment onto horses and mules to prepare for the mile long descent from the canyons rim to the river’s edge. Once on the water, you will enjoy a gorgeous 9 mile wilderness float trip through the Middle Box. You will have the opportunity to visit the pristine canyonscape of the Rio Grande Del Norte National Monument, explore ancient Native American hunting sites, and keep an eye out for the abundant wildlife beneath the towering ponderosa pines.
