My wife and I participated in a rafting trip with Holiday when we were dating and, to our surprise, the company is still in business 23 years later (although Dee and Sue, the owners, are long since retired). This time, we took our daughters and a long term boyfriend with us on this adventure. Every one had the time of... More

We completed a three day Ladore river trip at te end of July, and loved every moment of the journey! Our guides Tim, Peter and Ben made sure everything was organized, and fun! The scenery was incredible, the food was delicious, and the rapids were exciting. It was so relaxing to be completely disconnected for three days...just focused on the... More

I've been on raft trips with Holiday on the Green River, the Yampa, the San Juan, and the Salmon (Idaho) multiple times. I've always had a great, safe, and fun trip with good food and interesting people. Holiday guides are skilled, experienced, kind, and great dutch oven cooks. Rafting in the wilderness is my favorite yearly vacation and I couldn't... More

We went on another whitewater rafting vacation with Holiday River and it was just as good as last time. The guides were great, the food, and everything else. We saw some Indian petroglyphs and brought some friends this time. The rapids were a bit low because the water was high and swift in May when we went but it was... More

We did four days on the Green River going through the Gates of Lodore. The scenery was fantastic going trough the canyons. Our guides, Susan and Jesse were the best. Besides the great ride through rapids, they cooked the best meals, told tons of information, had a great sense of humor, and worked their tails off to make sure this... More

This was the best family vacation we've ever taken! The setting was spectacular, the service was attentive and professional, and the food was beyond expectations. Our guides were river experts, game experts, and engaging conversationalists. We had three generations in our family on the trip and it was perfect for everyone. As soon as our trip was over I started... More

My family, friends and I recently took a 4 day Gates of Ladore rafting trip on the Green River with Holiday Expeditions. It was everything and more for our group.

This last May (17 thru 20) my wife and I took our 5th down the San Juan. Each time the water flow and feel of the river has been different and completly enjoyable. The guides are always friendly, outgoing and are a plus to the fun of the trip. Our other rafters were interesting and by supper time of the... More

I went with a dozen 30 year old friends down the Yampa River with Holiday River Expeditions, the trip was simply outstanding in every way. The guides were great fun, pitching in at the campsites but also making sure the holiday was our own. The food was incredible, how you bake muffins or lasagne on the side of a river... More

Few rivers in the West can offer the seclusion, non-stop scenery, great rapids, green parks, pictographs, trout fishing and soulful beaches than the wild and free flowing Yampa River as it cuts through Dinosaur National Monument. And no river company treats you as good as Holiday River Expeditions. Very experienced guides, new equipment, sumptuous meals and very cool side hikes.
