CALL IT A “thrill and swill” excursion. New Mexico River Adventures gets your blood flowing with a half-day rafting trip along the Río Grande, then winds down with a relaxing elevated picnic lunch—think charcuterie, cheese, chicken salad croissant sandwiches—and a glass of rosé at Vivác Winery, followed by a stop or two at nearby wineries. “A bit of adrenaline paired with enjoying New Mexico’s bounty,” says river guide and New Mexico River Adventures co-owner Matt Gontram. “You gotta love that.” No whitewater experience (or sommelier training) is needed to enjoy the rush of riding Class III rapids and post-river wine education. Pickup and drop-off is available at Taos or Santa Fe; minimum age is 21, and group minimum is five people (unless you’re flexible with your dates). Tickets start at $325 per person for a full day.
