Fear not dear outdoor enthusiasts of The Madeleine Bed & Breakfast Inn: while the season has ended at the Santa Fe Ski Basin, now is the time to take advantage of the snow run-off and experience the thrill of whitewater rafting.  My favorite river rafting company in the area is New Wave Rafting, which has been operating river tours since 1980.  Located on the Rio Grande River between Santa Fe and Taos, they offer trips from the most mild to the most wild.  Whether you are looking for a family outing with young children in tow, a peaceful trip down the river to take in the area's spectacular scenic beauty, or a thrilling ride of the Taos Box with lots of action, New Wave can accommodate.

Trips are offered every day of the week from March 28, 2013 through September 2, 2013, though the wilder rides generally end by July when much of the season's snowpack has melted away.  New Wave has actually lowered their prices this year:  you can book a two hour float for as little as $22, or a three day camping trip down the Chama for $448.  Trips tend to run about $50 for a half day and up to $100 for a full day, and most include a delicious riverside picnic lunch.

You will definitely want to have hats and shoes that fasten securely, along with sunscreen and a water bottle, but New Wave provides all the rest.  With so many options to choose from, you will surely find a trip that meets your needs and desires.  Call New Wave directly at 800.984.1444 to make your reservations.
