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

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.

An absolutely amazing experience and one of the best holidays ever. The whole trip was extremely well planned and executed perfectly. The guides that looked after us were all very professional and hard working but also socialised really well with our group and put much more than the necessary effort in on many occasions. I could not recommend this trip... More

When booking this I didn't really know what to expect, but Holiday River really came through with an absolutely amazing trip. The pre-holiday service was excellent and really helped us (Group of 14) find the right trip at the right time of year that would best suit our needs. The rafting itself was incredible fun and the guides made sure... More

Just spent five days rafting down the Yampa and Green rivers on a truly unforgettable experience. I cannot recommend this company or this trip more highly. It went above and beyond all expectations. I really hope to head back on another trip in the not too distant future. The guides were excellent, the rafting and hiking were sensational and the... More

This is my second year in a row that I have been fortunate to be on a Holiday Trip on Gates of Ladore. I have spent many years on many rivers and my trios with Holiday are always special. They are an incredibly organized, well run company with professional, capable guides. Hope I get to go again next year. I... More
