Holiday River Expeditions offers several Utah River Rafting vacations. The Green River rafting trip is a 5 or 6 day trip that features exciting whitewater rapids for all ages. This trip usually includes some hiking to explore ancient Indian ruins and petroglyphs. The San Juan River rafting trip is a 3-day adventure down the exquisite San Juan River where you’ll experience the phenomenon of "sand waves". The Yampa River is the last undammed river in the Colorado River system and this is a 4 or 5 day trip for the intermediate river rafting enthusiast. The Desolation Canyon river rafting vacation is rated "easy" and is available for children as young as five years old. This is a 5 or 6 day river rafting trip through Canyonlands National Park where the scenery is always breathtaking. Adventure seekers will enjoy an abundance of wildlife sightings such as elk, moose and black bear and some great trout fishing. Transportation to and from the river is included in the cost, as well as delicious campfire meals prepared fresh each day.

This trip was fantastic! Holiday does an amazing job. We have 2 boys ages 9 and 11 and this trip was perfect for all ages. I cannot say enough good things about Holiday and specifically the amazing guides on our trip. They were so competent, friendly, knowledgeable and professional. There was not a single detail overlooked. We loved it and... More

We have just gotten off a 5-day river trip with Holiday on the Green and Colorado Rivers, including a high-energy passage through Cataract Canyon with the river running over 43,000 cfs. It would be impossible to give this trip too many superlatives. It had been organized by the Glen Canyon Institute, and so we were all like-minded but not previously... More

I try to go River rafting every year, I was hooked after the first all women's trip 20 years ago, Gates of Ladore. This year I did the Yampa trip. It was beautiful the river,the wild flowers, big horn sheep,the geology of the area. I usually go alone ,I always meet very nice and interesting people. Our guides are great... More

Great experience. Great vacation. You should take a trip with Holiday. This was my second trip with this company. Both times it was like luxury camping.

Our group of 10 women rafted the Yampa River in May 2015 with Holiday River Expeditions. From our first contact with Karen at the Salt Lake City office through the finish of the rafting trip, everything was perfect! Our guides, Ben and Sam, took great care of us on the river, the food was excellent and all of the gear... More

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
