Family River Rafting Trips

Family River Rafting trips with Holiday River Expeditions offer time together without interruptions and distractions of soccer practice, television, homework, & smartphones. It’s amazing what families can learn about each other during this river vacation.  Escaping on an outdoor adventure allows families to get back to basics and the core of relationships. Children and parents are introduced to new environments, people and activities. Sharing these new experiences together allows families to adapt and develop common bonds.  

4 Day Lodore Canyon

Whitewater rafting trips through Lodore Canyon are filled with iconic rapids and beautiful scenery. The ‘Gates’ dwarf you with 800 foot exquisite vermilion canyon walls. Hike to a hidden waterfall and navigate legendary whitewater such as “Disaster Falls” &“Hell’s Half Mile”.  A place with such rich human and natural history will leave you with a new story around every bend.

5-6 Day Desolation Canyon

The Tavaputs Plateau and Desolation Canyon are among the most remote areas of the continental United States. Even still, Desolation Canyon is actually anything but desolate. Instead, this amazing area is teeming with wildlife. A landscape marked by groves of cottonwood trees and white sand beaches. With playful intermediate whitewater, Desolation Canyon is a perfect fit for Inflatable Kayaks.

3-5 Day San Juan River

Pound for pound, the San Juan is one of the fastest moving rivers in the United States, dropping an average of eight feet per mile.  Sandstone and limestone walls frame the narrow canyon as the river snakes through the countless goosenecks for which it is famous.  The left bank of the river borders the present day Navajo Nation, while filled with sacred sites from the ancient pueblo civilizations of the past.  This playful class I-III whitewater is perfect for a first time rafter or the more adventurous inflatable kayakers. 

5-6 Day Main Salmon

There is a green hole in the middle of Idaho. A spot that is refreshingly empty on your highway map. A place where pavement never was…and wild rivers still are…raw country, 20,000 square miles of it, and right through the middle runs the Salmon River- The River of No Return.

2-3 Day Fisher Towers

This section of Colorado River Rafting is characterized by towering red sandstone monoliths set against the LaSal Mountains. With such classic red rock desert beauty, this trip offers a spectacular setting for river runners and over the past several years has been the backdrop for many Hollywood movie productions. Fun class I to II rapids appear on the Colorado making it the perfect section for youth groups to play in paddle boats and inflatable kayaks. Minutes outside of Moab, Utah!
