New Mexico River Adventures Encourages Folks to See the Beauty of the River Firsthand

By Elisha Neubauer

When you book a trip with New Mexico River Adventures, your trip starts the minute you enter their headquarters. Providing every amenity your party could require, the environment of New Mexico River Adventures kicks off your experience with a casual, safe atmosphere, setting the tone for the rest of your adventure.

"Our facility provides our guests with all the amenities to make your New Mexico river rafting trip, or kayak instruction the absolute best possible and highlight of your vacation," says Wendy and Matthew Gontram, Owners of New Mexico River Adventures. "Upon arriving, our guests will appreciate the welcoming atmosphere as well as the private and secure parking."

The facility also provides private changing rooms and restrooms for guests to utilize before heading off down the river. "Don't worry if you forgot any items for your trip as our outfitters store provides easy access to any last minute items you might need for your adventure," states Gontram.

Keeping in line with the atmosphere, the guides provided by New Mexico River Adventures are top of the line, educated, and helpful. "Our Guides are the best in the business with extensive training, knowledge of the area and just great, fun people," Gontram exclaims. When the trip is wrapped up, Gontram tells us your experience continues back at their headquarters. "After the trip, our headquarters provides the perfect atmosphere to relax and chat with the guides and other guests as you view your whitewater photos taken of you and your raft."

New Mexico River Adventures believes food is basic in life, and good food in the outdoors is a must. "New Mexico River Adventures uses the tastiest, freshest, natural foods available for all its adventures," Gontram states. "We work with local farmers, groceries, bakeries, and beverage companies, allowing us to offer the highest quality fare to be found on the river or in the field.

New Mexico River Adventures also works with gourmet chefs and any trip can be custom catered by these masters of cuisine." In fact, as Gontram tells us, they were even featured on episode 106 of BBQ with Bobby Flay. "We showed him how we do it on the Rio Grande," Gontram exclaims.

When it comes to a reason to hit the river with New Mexico River Adventures, Gontram has a pretty good one up his sleeve. "Northern New Mexico has some of the most beautiful, remote and uncrowded wilderness in the country," he says. "Of course, river rafting and kayaking on the Rio Grande and Rio Chama is one of the greatest opportunities to see these wild places first hand." New Mexico River Adventures also offers a whitewater school, rock climbing, boats and equipment, and camping and outfitting.
