This was our second trip with Holiday (went on a 4 day Gates of Lodore rafting trip in 2014). This year we decided to change it up, so we signed up for a guided bike ride prior to the raft trip- perfect! Dustin and Josh were wonderful guides on the 3 day bike portion, cooking up a storm with Eggs... More

We just finished our third rafting trip with Holiday. Each one has been terrific. The guides are knowledgeable, well trained, safe, friendly, and fun. The food is terrific...steak and salmon with garlic mashed potatoes and salad with pineapple upside down cake for desert! We could relax in the oar boat, float in calm water, or zip down fun rapids in... More

Our guides were fantastic, had lots of info to provide, and were excellent cooks. Went on the 5 day trip and it was just our family as the other family had to cancel. Wish they had been there so our kids has someone to talk to besides just adults, but hey, some people would pay more to not have to... More

We spent 5 days on the Yampa River in early June; the river was running about 10,000 cfs. The weather was fantastic, and I slept under the stars every night except the first night...it started to sprinkle about 3 in the morning, so I spent a few hours that night in a tent. The stars were fabulous in the dark... More

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

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
