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.

It’s been seven years since we did the 3 days westwater canyon trip and I still think if these days as some of the happiest in my life. Couldn’t think of anything that could have been more perfect.
