Best place for rafting: Moab, Taos or Durango?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I (37 & 33 years old) are going on a three week vacation to New Mexico, Utah and Colorado in June and we’d like to include a half day white water rafting trip in our itinerary. I’ve never rafted before, my husband has been on one or two trips in Europe (but this was over 15 years ago). What would be our best option: Moab, Taos or Durango? Or maybe even Grand Junction or the Rocky Mountain National Park/Denver area? Especially considering the apparently very low spring runoff in the rivers from the mountains this year. Being practically first-timers, we’re obviously not looking for grade VI rapids, but some action would be nice. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, and we’re obviously also interested to hear which outfitters you’d recommend!
