Holiday River Expeditions offers adventurists trips of a lifetime. With a special focus on Utah river rafting, Holiday River Expeditions employs expert outfitters that know the subtle meandering twists and turns of the Green River. The Cataract Canyon river rafting excursion goes deep into the heart of Utah's infamous Canyonlands National Park. Featuring otherwise inaccessible historic pueblo ruins, waterfalls and colorful canyon grottos, this adventurous trip offers the ideal balance between serenity and out of this world fun. Holiday River's Westwater Canyon adventure explores the brilliant gorge that is dubbed the miniature Grand Canyon. Following a segment of the Colorado River that features adrenaline-inducing Class III and IV rapids, this area highlights Utah's pristine wilderness and the area's unique rock formations. Desolation Canyon is rich in Wild West history, as it was the former hideout of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Once home to the Native American Fremont tribe, this area teams with native fauna and flora and is surrounded by sheer, rainbow colored cliffs. Teaming with abundant wildlife, this stretch of the Green River features unblemished white sandy beaches and cottonwood groves. Highlighting 60 rolling rapids, this trip is perfect for adults and children alike. Where the Bright Angel Trail begins, this canyon is deeper than the Grand Canyon. The San Juan River features rainbow-colored rock walls, ancient limestone swimming pools and nearly endless views of nearby Monument Valley. Overnight trips include camping amenities, in addition to sensational feasts. Whether adventure enthusiasts are looking to explore nature, experience adrenaline-rushing rapids or simply enjoy the spectacular scenery, Holiday River Expeditions offers lifelong memories.

The Holiday River Expeditions web site and pre-trip experience set the bar for our trip very high. They have many great reviews, amazing photos and what sounded like a trip of a lifetime.

These guys made the trip fun and easy. They set up, breakdown, cook, clean, paddle and just about everything else. They were all positive and knowledgeable about the area. This is our second trip and I am sure we will have a third with them.

This was an amazing, incredible experience. BIKING The first 2 days of biking were no joke. They were hard and challenging. You're riding up some pretty unrelenting inclines at about 6000 feet. So your lungs are going to hate you if you don't live at that altitude. But there are some great downhills and the views every single moment are... More

Two of us went on the 3 day trip through Cataract Canyon. Although we met in Green River, the trip really started at the Potash boat launch area below Moab. The jet boat made quick progress through the slow water area. Scenery was great with lots of Blue Heron. The jet boat caught up with our rafts which had set... More

The Cataract Rapids have been on my wish list for 30 years. I could not have picked a better company than Holiday River Expeditions. I floated down the Colorado River with Colin, Max and Susan as my guides and care takers. Every want and question I had for them was taken care of and answered. They as a team went... More

My sister Sheri, our friend Carole, and myself took a 6 day rafting trip on the Colorado River thru Cataract Canyon. It was unbelievable. Our guides were Colin, Susan, and Max. They made the trip so much fun. It was exciting but not scary, educational but not boring, copious amounts of fresh food but no weight gain. What more could... More

I used Holiday Expeditions after several family members took a Westwater trip the year before and fell in love with the Holiday way. The whole trip was awesome. The guides, the rafts, the scenery, the meals- everything was perfect. Could not have asked for anything more on our four day trip. Can't wait to pick a new river to explore... More

We just returned from a 2 day, 1 night trip down the Colorado River on the Westwater Rafting Trip. It was amazing! While the rafting was fun and the scenery in this part of Utah was breathtaking, the Guides made the trip a very special vacation. They are very knowledgeable and accomodate (almost) every request within reason and...are amazing chefs.... More

Just completed a two day Colorado rafting trip with Holiday. Fantastic experience from start to finish. Holiday really knows what they are doing and the experience absolutely reflects that professionalism. Our raft leader Justin was outstanding - very friendly, incredibly knowledgeable about the river and the environment which added to our experience. We joined two other rafts and all three... More
