“River Rafting down the Colorado River with Holiday Expeditions”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

This was a first time vacation experience for myself & husband, his 2 sisters & brothers-in-laws, along with our two adult sons. Together we took a awesome Rafting/Camping Cruise down the Colorado River hosted by Holiday Expeditions. homebased out of Green River, Utah. The food was fantastic! The scenery majestic! The guides were wonderful & very knowledgable, making the entire trip a very memorable success. I couldn't reccomend it MORE!

“Wonderful ranger talk - don't forget to go to the needles”
Reviewed August 25, 2011

We camped just shy of the Canyonlands entrance, by Dead Horse Point State Park. This itself was extremely impressive and had some beautiful hikes around the perimeter. From here, we were easily able to make the trip into Canyonlands in a day.

In all honesty, we loved the park and the views. I think it was definitly more impressive than the Grand canyon, and we were lucky that we hit a fantastic ranger giving a talk when we were at the Grand View Point Overlook. He explained all the relevant geology simlply and in a way that kept us all interested (5, 8, 10, 12!).

We made several of the hikes, including Whale Rock and Upheval Dome, and enjoyed them all.

We camped the next night at the Needles campground. We were not prepared for it to be quite such a long way in, but we were handsomely rewarded by the most beautiful campground ever. It was virtually deserted and backed by huge rock formations, onto which we climbed to watch the beautiful sunset. This was really spectacular. In the morning, we hiked and went into the needles area, and finished up looking in really col potholes just above the visitor's center, that were teeming with wildlife!

“A great adventure Rafting on the Green River”
Reviewed August 15, 2010

On the advise of another Trip Advisor contributor, my husband and I had a great adventure doing a river float on the Green River in early August. On her recomendation, we rented a 4 person raft for the 2 of us on a Saturday. This cost $59.00 for the day and included lifejackets, 3 paddles and a bail bucket. The raft was big enough for the 2 of us, a cooler and a large wet bag. We opted to have the rental company drop us off & launch us at the river and pick us up at Little Hole, 7 miles down the river. This is an additional cost of $80.00, but was well worth it for us, being new to this type of experience. We had so much fun, enjoying the wonderful scenery and the peacefulness of this beautiful location. There were many others river floaters with much larger groups with children. There were also lots of fly fisherman in boats and on the rivers edge. This was a great, fun adventure that we will alway remember.
