Holiday River Expeditions offers adventurists trips of a lifetime. With a special focus on Utah river rafting, Holiday River Expeditions employs expert outfitters that know the subtle meandering twists and turns of the Green River. The Cataract Canyon river rafting excursion goes deep into the heart of Utah's infamous Canyonlands National Park. Featuring otherwise inaccessible historic pueblo ruins, waterfalls and colorful canyon grottos, this adventurous trip offers the ideal balance between serenity and out of this world fun. Holiday River's Westwater Canyon adventure explores the brilliant gorge that is dubbed the miniature Grand Canyon. Following a segment of the Colorado River that features adrenaline-inducing Class III and IV rapids, this area highlights Utah's pristine wilderness and the area's unique rock formations. Desolation Canyon is rich in Wild West history, as it was the former hideout of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Once home to the Native American Fremont tribe, this area teams with native fauna and flora and is surrounded by sheer, rainbow colored cliffs. Teaming with abundant wildlife, this stretch of the Green River features unblemished white sandy beaches and cottonwood groves. Highlighting 60 rolling rapids, this trip is perfect for adults and children alike. Where the Bright Angel Trail begins, this canyon is deeper than the Grand Canyon. The San Juan River features rainbow-colored rock walls, ancient limestone swimming pools and nearly endless views of nearby Monument Valley. Overnight trips include camping amenities, in addition to sensational feasts. Whether adventure enthusiasts are looking to explore nature, experience adrenaline-rushing rapids or simply enjoy the spectacular scenery, Holiday River Expeditions offers lifelong memories.

We had a great family adventure with Holiday River Expeditions floating down the Green River through Dinosaur National Monument. The scenery was impressive, the rapids invigorating, the food was delicious, and the guides stupendous and fun. We raveled with our then 10 &11 year old adventure loving girls and shared some unforgettable family memories last summer. It was such a... More

Part of our group, roughly a dozen, had signed up for a rafting trip. We met at the office behind the Comfort Inn- down a gravel road. After signing umpteen pages of waiver – sadly the norm in these days – we boarded the van – towing the inflatable raft, to take us to our launching point, up the Green... More

We booked a day rafting trip on the Gray's canyon section of the Green River. Our guides were Justin and Colin. They showed us and great time and were so much fun to be with. They made sure we all got wet in the rapids. We had 12 people total plus the 2 guides. 9 people paddled the 6 "duckies"... More

A lot of the best southern Utah sights are really crowded. With Holiday River Expeditions, you get to see the mind-blowing sights without the crowds. Great guides, really excellent experience. This is a well-run company. I had such fun doing stand up paddleboard (SUP), in addition to the rafting.

I just returned from a two day Westwater trip with my 12-year old son and we truly had an incredible experience. Everything was well planned out by the Holiday Expeditions crew - booking experience was simple and easy but the real difference on this trip was the guides - Zach, Dustin and Larkin, they worked their butts off to make...

This is one of those trips you will always remember! I planned this trip for my husband and I am so glad I did! The guides are super helpful and pleasant.
