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. « less

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. They cook your meals, transport gear, have great stories, etc. We met great people we are still in contact with! Definitely pack light and re-wear your clothes, if possible.... More

I had such an incredible time on my Holiday trip down Cataract Canyon. The trip was well planned, the food was great and the guides were amazing. They were experts in geology, geography, botany, river running, rapids and cooking. We spent our days floating through beautiful scenery and going through huge and exciting whitewater. Our nights were spent looking at... More

This trip exceeded our expectations. The camping was great. The food was awesome. The rapids were a blast. We're looking to make this an annual thing, A couple notes for a first-timer: 1. Pack light. It just makes everything easier. 2. Mosquitos weren't a big problem, except for the first night. Bring insect repellant. 3. Bring a good sunblock and... More

Easily one of the most beautiful sceneries on this 5 day rafting trip with extremely competent and knowledgable guides who thought about everything including providing games and entertainment for young and older (we are seniors), set up shade umbrellas on boats, cooked fantastic meals and so on. I have rarely been so well taken care of on a trip. Enjoyed... More

Our trip down Cataract Canyon was outstanding. It goes with out saying that the scenery, wildlife, river were amazing, but what really made the trip was the seem-less logistics and fabulous guides who outdid themselves in making sure the trip went off without a hitch - including a safe run down the rapids. Everything from the food, equipment, and great... More

We traveled with seven family members - teen grand kids (15, 17 and 19) parents and us (grandparents). We do a trip each year for 10 years and this was voted the best so far. It beat out cruises, a dude ranch, the Bahamas etc. Scenery was spectacular, guides so helpful and fun with the kids, whitewater rafting very exciting,... More

We did a two day tour down the Colorado River (West Water Canyon), and camped out our only night - which was highly recommended by our awesome tour guides - Doug and Susan.

June 23-27, 2014 was a special 60th birthday celebration(s) for a group of 9 women friends/sisters. What a blast! Mostly inexperienced multi-day rafters, we were all very impressed by how well run the whole operation was, resulting in a fabulous, delicious, thrilling, and safe trip. Our guides were exceptional in their skill, knowledge, outdoor culinary techniques, and strength to tackle... More
