2-Day Santa Elena Canyon


2-Day Santa Elena Canyon


Enjoy a night out in the wilderness and get to know one of Big Bend’s more iconic canyons. Our 2-Day trips offer a perfect overnight on the water and can also be an inspiration for longer river adventures. This 20-mile section of the Rio Grande meanders through gorgeous scenery that is rich in geologic wonders, flora and fauna, and human history, both old and new. At their full height, the walls of Santa Elena tower 1500 feet above the Rio Grande and are truly a sight to behold. Floating through this spectacular canyon allows you to fall into the rhythm of a multi-day river trip and affords access to places far from the beaten path. This trip floats for TWO FULL days and spends one night on the water.
