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.

The guides (Josh, Dustin, Jesse, Rocky) were friendly and extremely professional to say the least. We have a great wilderness experience while feeling always safe and in good hands. The food was good and ample to say the... More

We went on the 3 night Green river trip which was incredible. The first thing to highlight was the guides, all really uplifting friendly people who clearly knew river really well. There was never a point where I doubted any of their abilities and felt safe at all times. The food was incredible. I didn't know so much was possible... More

Great people to work with. The guides were knowledgeable, fun and it was an amazing trip. Whitewater rafting, kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming, camping under the stars, yoga and meditation along the river, and fantastic food that is made for you!

Holiday is a highly organized and professional outfit with a generous spirit. My family of four experienced world class camping, great cuisine, unforgettable hikes and warm companionship, leadership and care from our guides on our 4-day trip through the Lodore Canyon. We hiked to magical waterfalls and saw bighorn sheep and native petroglyphs along a pristine blue ribbon trout stream.... More

What a terrific experience for our family (3 boys ages 10-15) and friends (four kids 10-16) and three other families/groups through the Gates of Lodor. Since we were such a large party, we had five guides/boats. Each was spectacular in their own way. Led by Dave, we had Dustin, Larkin, Trevor and Max. They worked together flawlessly and tirelessly to... More

One more woman was in our group, adding great fun to the whole experience. Guides Susan and Sarah were amazing at everything they did: rowing and... More

We just took an outfitted 3-day 2-night trip with Holiday River Expeditions from Loma Colorado thru Westwater Canyon. My husband and I are whitewater rafters ourselves and have done this stretch of river privately. This year we joined family and friends from back East on a catered trip! The timing was especially good, because my husband/boatman is recovering from a... More
