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

Safety Well Balanced With Fun

Aug 26, 2015 by Desmond Varady

Justin and Larkin were top notch, excellent guides and great people. I can't say enough good about them. They were friendly, they kept our safety as first priority but they also balanced that well with knowing we were there to have fun. Thank you!

I had a great experience!!! I wasn't sure what to expect but was surprised every day by the awesome food, hikes and awesome rapids. The guides were also great and very friendly as well as very organized and made sure everyone was having fun. All around a great experience thank you Holiday for a great trip.

The Guides Went Out Of Their Way To Provide Our Comfort

It was a great time with the guides and other folks on the trip. I’m a new camper and when our air mattress failed the guides were great to make sure I got some pads to make it through the nights more comfortably.

Thanks For Managing My Dietary Requirements

The guides were always concerned about our safety and were professional and accommodating. I had special dietary requirements and it was never an issue.

Until Next Time!

Karen Johnson is incredible at getting us all set up with reservations. We get so busy in between signing up and the trip that I really can't tell you how invaluable her emails and tips are to me. This was my 3rd Holiday trip. I so love that you have the numbered bags, it really saves us the money in getting our own. It also keeps me coming back to Holiday! :) The boats are beautiful and so well taken care of too. This was my children’s’ 2nd trip and more importantly it was my husband’s 1st. He loved it so much! I never know where to start on the feedback of the entire experience. I am an event planner and usually have to do all the manual labor and planning and "doing" of everything. Holiday has become my favorite trip away. Everything is so well done and so incredibly well planned out. It is tough for Moms to start out not doing anything to help but the staff is so great about doing all the footwork that you feel ok after a while. :) Each time the food is magnificent. The gear they use to make amazing meals makes it half of the magical experience. There is such a little kitchen and the meals that come out of it are fabulous. The guides are one of the best parts of the trip. We grow so fond of them each time it makes you want to come back and do more trips with them. I so enjoy the learning experience that Dave, Julian and Tanner turned the trip into for my children. They all know so much about the trips we are on and I love to hear about the history and environmental facts about our surroundings. The fantastic hikes are one of the best parts too. I request the same guides each time and end up loving the new ones just as much! Soon it won't matter who takes us! Tanner and Larkin were especially great with our kids and our friends’ kids. Larkin was a rock star as she got the brunt of the young, crazy girls that just wanted to be around her and she got a disobedient stint and handled it so well. We were really grateful and so impressed! Collin needs to leave Holiday and become a singer! I had the most fun floating with him and he has such a wonderful personality. My husband and I could have talked to him for hours. I must say we are all a little down today as we head back to our reality and realize the magical place we live in and the amazing resource we have in Holiday to show us that place in all its many splendors. Until next time with great anticipation and appreciation.....The Weiss Family - Peter, Karen, Lulu and Lizzy

If You Are Contemplating A Trip, Go!

Aug 25, 2015 by Larry & Carole Hancey

The trip was more than we expected. Maybe because we were mostly family but we had so much fun. The others who were not part of our family blended in very well and everyone had a satisfying experience I believe. Our guides were great, they were fun and educational at the same time. Nothing was too much trouble and I was amazed at how efficiently they worked together, they made quite a team. We had great water fights, sometimes encouraged by our guides, who also got as soaked as we did along the way. The scenery was majestic and my husband and I would highly recommend this trip to anyone contemplating a river rafting trip.

"Better Than Disneyland!"

Aug 25, 2015 by Kyle & Chalene Parkin

This was the best trip I have ever been on, the staff treated us like royalty and the food was amazing! We took our two oldest boys (12 and 9 yrs old) and they kept coming up to us saying this is better than Disneyland! I would highly recommend this trip to anyone.

A Fun Grandma / Grandson Trip

TJ and Sherpa were phenomenal and they cook well too. This was a grandma / grandson trip and we both had a wonderful time. It was exciting, but we always felt perfectly safe.
