Rio Grande Sunset
Rio Grande Sunset
Quiet and solitude are rare qualities in today’s modern world, but ones that exemplify the majesty of the Rio Grande. Canoeing or kayaking into any of the river’s breathtaking canyons is one of the most enjoyable ways to experience the heart of the Rio Grande Wild & Scenic River. Whether you choose a day trip or a 10-day journey, each of these canyons will carry you into an ethereal world of water, rock, and sky.
As the upper 69-mile section of this 196-mile river corridor lies within Big Bend National Park, most information related to your visit can be found on the Big Bend National Park website. Download our Current Visitor Guide, the Paisano, for comprehensive information about visiting Big Bend National Park and Rio Grande Wild & Scenic River.
