Green River Rafting through Lodore Canyon trips are filled with excitement and beautiful scenery. We will encounter 800-foot canyon walls superbly crafted by Mother Nature of Precambrian Bedrock along with exquisite vermilion rock formations. Many of its exciting whitewater rapids were named by John Wesley Powell, who first discovered the canyon in 1869. Powell’s adventures live on in the whitewater rapids he named: Disaster Falls, Triplet Falls and Hell’s Half Mile. Set aside as an American treasure in 1938 under the National Park System, the Green River through Lodore Canyon is a sanctuary for bighorn sheep, deer and birds of prey.  Here are a few things you can look forward to during your whitewater rafting trip.


  • Exhilarating Class III & IV whitewater rapids
  • Cavernous canyons of amazing beauty
  • Many opportunities to view wildlife
  • Soft sandy beaches for camping & games
  • The perfect family rafting adventure

Our women's rafting trip through the Lodore Canyon on the Green and Yampa Rivers was so awesome!! The guides, activities and food definitely exceeded my expectations. I believe our guides (Susan, Erica, & Jessica) really made the trip great! I plan to be back!

Holiday never fails to exceed our expectations. This was our second trip with them and it definitely won't be the last. The great experience begins before we even leave: dealing with Karen in the office is an absolute pleasure. She is kind, helpful and very prompt! The guides we've had at Holiday are top-notch... Like honestly, the best kind of people you will ever cross paths with. They make the entire experience comfortable, fun and exciting. The attention to detail and impeccable organization still baffles me and it's truly amazing how well the whole thing is run. Thank you, thank you, thank you Holiday, you are the best! We can't wait until our kids are old enough to experience the river with us and you! xo.

I was so impressed by the guides' knowledge about the terrain, plants, and rock formations. They worked so well as a team, and each of them pitched in to make it work. I was very impressed by their ability to cook food so well! Every meal was a special treat, and I loved story time after dinner!

Everything was really amazing and the guides went above and beyond to make sure all of our expectations were being met. I can't get over the quality of food that the guides gave us on our excursion.

I had the time of my life with Holiday! The excitement of the rapids was almost topped by the delicious food, interesting company and beautiful location. Impeccable organization of the guides made me feel pampered and safe. Thank you Holiday, I'll be back!

This was an amazing family vacation. Everything was perfect. The guides were experienced, knowledgeable, and looked out for our safety. The food was great. Rafting was exciting and fun. The day hikes were also fun. I would do this again in a heartbeat.

The waterproof bags, tent, sleeping bags and other accessories were in wonderful shape. The guides were absolutely fantastic. From cooking incredible meals, helping us set up and break down our tents, answering all of our questions and sharing interesting stories around the campfire, the guides were extraordinary. Their patience and enthusiasm for the river and the wildlife that inhabit the area was inspiring. The hikes and various other activities were very enjoyable. The views that we experienced while hiking were breathtaking. Although portions of each hike were challenging, all of the guides made my family and I feel very safe. Their concern for our safety and excitement towards each activity didn't go unnoticed. My family and I have been on two river trips with Holiday. It was great fun and enjoyable from the first minute to the last. We enjoyed a feeling of complete safety and security throughout the trip. It was a privilege to experience the river with the guides. Our guides were fantastic and knew a lot about the history and geography of each river. We will never forget the patience, humbleness, generosity and concern that the guides demonstrated. Our experience was nothing short of extraordinary.

Our family of 4 did the Lodore trip with the National Parks Traveler crew and were blown away by our trip overall. First, the people (guides: Justin, Dustin, Collin & Sam and the other guests) made the trip so great. I really enjoyed the guides and their positive carefree style and I appreciated all their hard work to make our trip possible. I also appreciated Karen planning the trip with our kids in mind and having another family on our trip as they were great people and it was that much more fun for my children to have kids their age to play with and enjoy the trip with out in the wilderness. The trip also included other wonderful guests that we immediately became friends with and truly enjoyed their company. Our trip was the National Parks Traveler trip and those representing the online magazine lent another positive layer to a truly great trip as they shared their knowledge and desires to preserve our amazing National Parks. Second, was the wonderful location and the amazing beauty that reminds you this is God's country and nothing happens by accident. Lastly, we just enjoyed the trip as a family and were so excited to do a multi day camping and rafting and the rapids were so much fun, just exactly what we were wanting in our trip.
