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

Great Weather In September

Our trip on the Green River through Dinosaur National Park went as planned. The guides TJ and Sherpa were well educated on all aspects of our trip and were quite entertaining. The food was delicious, the weather in September was great and the guys really worked to make sure we had a fun trip.

Nice To Feel Safe

The food was delicious and our guides were absolutely fantastic in every way. We felt very safe in their hands. This was one of the best river trips ever.

An Outstanding Organization

Everything met and exceeded my expectations. The guides in particular: Zack, Justin and Dustin were amazing. Total professionals who took excellent care of us and made us feel completely at home. I was so impressed with them. I'm planning on recommending Holiday River without hesitation to anyone looking to do a similar trip. This was the trip of a lifetime. I can't imagine a better experience. Holiday River is an outstanding organization with some of the most friendly, professional and helpful people on the planet both organizing and guiding their trips.

Our Group Bonded Quickly

The Gates of Lodore trip with our group of pediatric docs and loves was guided by inspiring and young Susan, Alex, Jesse, Bryn, Josh and special yoga guide Lauren. It was a dream. We quickly integrated as a community and had a great mix of floating, riding duckies, swimming, hiking and getting wet in every way. You have a great team and system for efficiently and enjoyably going with the flow.

A Float To Remember

We had a wonderful 4 day "float" down the Green River from Colorado and into Utah. My expectations were blown away by the beauty of the landscape, the company we were with and the great guides (Zack, Justin, Dustin, Mac and Mak) that shepherded us down the river and made sure we didn't get into any "trouble". It was a trip to remember and I look forward to doing something similar in the near future.

Exceeded My High Expectations

The rafting trip was amazing! Our guides were great at making sure we were having a great time. The food, activities and overall experience greatly exceed my (somewhat already high) expectations.

I Recommend A Family Whitewater Rafting Trip

This was a great trip for the whole family. The kids loved swimming and hanging out in camp as much as the adults loved the rafting and amazing scenery. Experiences we will all remember for a long time.

Outdoor All-Stars

It was an extraordinary experience. Our group of guides was outdoor all-stars. We'll be back again.
