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

A Safe & Respectful Way To Explore Our National Parks

Oct 16, 2014 by Elizabeth Geraghty

The food was phenomenal! Who would have thought to have freshly baked pineapple upside down cake when camping? This was no "hotdog and hamburger" trip. I have finally stopped talking about this trip to everyone and now take time to write about it. I would like to give a huge thank you to those who first created this company, especially in showing us that our National Parks and Rivers can be safely explored and respected. I am truly grateful to be able to experience this trip and with the perfect group. The guides were informative, entertaining and I really felt very safe with them. Thank you again to all at Holiday River!

Holiday Runs A Great Program

Sep 29, 2014 by David Seffren

Three thumbs up on the food. It was much better than I anticipated with fresh veggies and fresh fruit all prepared quickly and efficiently by our guides. The presentation flair of the pineapple spears was just great! A+++ Holiday River Expeditions will meet and then EXCEED your expectations. They have a great program run by great staff. You won't be disappointed. HIGHLY recommended.

The Most Satisfying River Experience

Sep 25, 2014 by Kerry Kelly

Holiday produced its usual impeccable service and caring guides. After many years and trips I brought my family for the first time to show them the wonders of Lodore Canyon. I know there will be many more Kelly trips to come. I cannot imagine an outfitter producing a more satisfying river experience. The equipment was very carefully managed. The guides were very conscious of our safety, always helpful and knowledgeable, and worked very hard to cater to a trip which included grandmothers, and young children, all for a wonderful 30 year birthday celebration.

Guides Take The Trip To The Next Level

Sep 21, 2014 by Todd Williams & Vinita Robitsch

The guides are impressive, and truly contribute to the overall experience. They were intelligent, informative, helpful, interesting, fun and just plain nice (and some pretty good cooks too)! They raise the bar high. The food was great - fresh and well prepared. The raft trip itself is beautiful and wondrous, but your people are definitely your best asset. Excellent trip! We have been telling everyone about your company and will definitely take more trips.

I Never Knew How Much Beauty Was Always So Close By

Sep 17, 2014 by Tom Hahl

I have lived in Colorado for 62 yrs and have never made it to that part of the state. I was enthralled with the geology and just the beauty of Lodore Canyon. The weather was perfect, bugs not an issue and the guides, a pleasure. I don't know how it could have been better.

Looking Forward To Another Trip!

Sep 08, 2014 by John & Elizabeth Siegel

This was the best trip our family has taken in years. The scenery, guides, food and rafting was well beyond our expectations. We are looking forward to another trip in the very near future.

Didn’t Want To Leave

Aug 24, 2014 by Tara Kelly

The guides were entertaining and hardworking. The scenery in Lodore canyon was S-P-E-C-T-A-C-U-L-A-R. Our family had an awesome time. We didn't want to leave.

Night Time Circles Around The Campfire

Aug 19, 2014 by Sameer & Carin Giga

Our guides, Ben, Tim and Peter were fantastic. They made our time on the river really fun. They're also great cooks! We went on the Gates of Lodore trip, and the entire experience was phenomenal! The scenery was breathtaking, the rapids were exciting, and our guides made the whole experience a ton of fun. We loved everything: the hikes, the amazingly delicious meals, the inflatable kayaks, and the circle time at night around the campfire. Everything was better than we could have imagined, and we can't wait for our next river trip!

It's Liberating To Be "Off The Grid"

Aug 17, 2014 by Erwin & Tanya Kratz

Lodore Canyon was beautiful. It was a great time on the river unplugging from the stresses of work. Mike and Doug were very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. I would encourage anyone considering a river trip to go ahead and book it. If you enjoy the outdoors and being off the grid, you'll love this trip!

Absolute Heaven

The food was AMAZING! The trip was absolute heaven. Such beautiful scenery brings peace to your soul. The guides were genuinely concerned about creating a great experience! I can't imagine a summer without a river trip with Holiday!
