Colorado River rafting doesn’t get much better than this! Our Westwater Canyon whitewater rafting trip takes us down a segment of the Colorado River that is magnificent and is often referred to as a miniature Grand Canyon. The beauty and grandeur of this section of the Colorado River offers memorable sights such as pristine beaches, charming side canyons, and beautiful campsites.

Westwater: the ultimate two or three-day getaway.  Colorado River Rafting trips in Westwater Canyon begin in May and run through September.


  • Great introduction to river rafting trips
  • Excellent choice if you are short on time

This was my first river experience (on the Colorado). I was a staff member with Soul-r-Eclipse and really only knew what my part of the trip was going to be like. I just want to say what an amazing experience I had. Holiday thinks of everything to make this rugged trip comfortable. We had two amazing, strong, knowledgeable and very professional young ladies (Erika and Susan), who treated us like queens the whole time out there. I felt very much in good hands that it was easy to relax and enjoy the time on the river. Holiday runs an amazing trip and the staff are all around above and beyond what one would expect. It was mind blowing how such great food could be prepared while all being transported on the rafts and equipment was compact. I truly was blown away by this trip. It was really life changing for me and I can only express my fullest gratitude to Soul-r-Eclipse, Susan, Erika and Holiday and all the amazing ladies I shared this trip with for a great experience. I cannot wait to bring my family on this experience.

The guides were incredible. Susan and Erica were knowledgeable, competent, confident, amiable and outgoing. They gave all of the clients confidence. The two 'assistants', Ellie and Charlie, were also very good, helpful, considerate and hard-working. I can't praise the guides highly enough. Susan, the most experienced, then Erica, then the two relatively new folks were a delight.

Best trip I've ever been on! The guides were all amazing and so much fun! They were very flexible with our plans which allowed us to do activities that we wanted to do. Highly recommended trip!

This trip was a total blast from the minute we pulled into the parking lot to the minute we rolled back in. The guides were knowledgeable and extremely easy to get along with. They made the trip what it was. Our group can be a challenging group to handle, they rolled with it and did an awesome job keeping everyone on task. The food on the trip was awesome, the camp sites were incredible and the whole experience was A+.

Plush in comparison to what I had imagined we would have. Above and beyond on all aspects. I was VERY impressed with the work ethic and professionalism from our guides, Tburd and Flashlight(Colter). They never stopped moving and never left any detail unattended. Also, who serves Filet Minion on a rafting trip... Madness, but I loved it. It's hard to fully express how the experience of a trip like this affects you. It was awesome! Exciting, fun, humbling but mostly, it rejuvenates and refuels your soul with a feeling that can only be found on the river. I am unable to say "once in a lifetime" because I will be back. Thank you for what you do and allowing people to remind themselves of what life is all about.

They always provide great gear!! We always have a great time with Holiday every year. Your guides are super knowledgeable and very pleasant to travel with. The food is great as always. It was great to do a new river this year. Thank you for being such a great company to work with!!

Loved the hikes up to the outlaws hideout and mining cabin! Food was so good! Our family was paired with another family of similar ages which gave our kids someone to play with once we settled into camp. Guides Rocky and Mac were AMAZING! They were so knowledgeable about the river, history, facts and navigation. They interacted very well with the kids. During meals and at camp they worked their hardest to anticipate every want and desire. The meals were prepped efficiently and some of the best of our entire visit to Utah! The gear we rented from Holiday River was all in excellent condition. Rocky and Mac were two guys that never slacked off in the 32 hours they were with us. It is obvious that they truly enjoy what they do! THANK YOU FOR AN INCREDIBLE FAMILY EXPERIENCE! The highlight of our trip!

We really enjoyed our trip and it was our first time camping. The Guides (Justin, Rocky and Mac) really made our trip the experience it was. They were very knowledgeable about the geology and history of the river we rafted. And may we say the food was amazing!!! Best tour company around and we plan to do this trip again next summer.

Josh, Collin, Zack. LB, Brian and Rocky (and I am sure I am missing some) are the best guides EVER. They will fulfill any need at any time. From the young kids to the grandmas who are looking for a good laugh. Amazing young men who know how to make you feel safe and happy..... Helped to make memories to last a life time... priceless... Thanks guys for the good time! Xoxo
