MST Adventures helps people enjoy the excitement that the Land of Enchantment has to offer. They provide guided kayaking and Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) tours on the Rio Grande as well as guided snowshoeing tours in the Sandia mountains. In addition to guide services, they offer skills clinics and lessons for kayaking, SUP, and photography. If you need gear, but no guide, they have you covered on the water and off, renting snowshoe gear, SUP equipment and whitewater kayaks.
MST Adventures offers small group, guided snowshoe tours starting in January, 2019. They have a special permit for the Cibola National Forest and National Grasslands. They are the only commercial guide service allowed to offer snowshoeing tours of the Sandia’s!
MST designs tours of various lengths for all fitness abilities and can accommodate kids through adults. The tours include snowshoes, trekking poles, and an interpretive guide.
Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) Tours
Stand Up Paddling has been used by cultures around the world for over 3000 years for fishing, hunting, transportation, and recreation. Adjustable paddles allow users to stand, sit, or kneel on the boards for comfort and stability and modern SUP designs are very stable. All SUP tours include instruction from a professional guide, all necessary paddling equipment (including a dry bag for spare clothes, phone, and keys), refreshments, and a unique and beautiful tour through the Middle Rio Grande Valley.
Good Morning SUP Tours/Sunset SUP Tours
The morning and evening SUP tours last 3-4 hours depending on river flow rates. Available any day April 1-October 31.
Adventure Brewery Tours
Must be 21+ for this tour. The season determines the adventure (and the beer selection!). In the summer they start the morning off with a SUP tour on the Rio Grande through Albuquerque. Once the paddling adventure is over, guests change into a dry set of clothes, load up into the van, and head to three breweries for lunch and beer sampling.
