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 Canyon is a great rafting trip for those who want the beauty and thrills of a traditional Colorado River rafting vacation, and yet only have a few days available for their river rafting tour. 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
  • Exciting class III & IV whitewater rapids
  • Stunning wilderness canyon with unique rock formations

Holiday Handled Our Trip Logistics With Grace

Oct 22, 2014 by Eli Shostak

The guides were wonderful. We had lots of special requests and unique planning considerations that they worked with easily and with amazing grace. I would happily work with Alex, Susan and Colin anytime. Top marks all around (drivers too). NewCo totally appreciates all the flexibility, understanding and support that Holiday has provided as we get our feet on the ground. We hope to continue to build our relationship and look forward to running more trips with Holiday's support. Everyone we have interacted with (Shout out to Tim), has been absolutely wonderful. We are looking forward to next season!

Outstanding From Booking To Completion

The guides, Jesse & Justin in particular, were outstanding and far exceeded my expectations. They were knowledgeable and kept their cool under some very challenging situations. They made this trip far more than I had hoped for and very fun. EXCELLENT!!!! Oh, and Justin's culinary skills deserve a shout out as well! From booking to completion, this trip was outstanding. All of the staff were friendly, helpful and genuinely nice people to deal with. I plan on using Holiday again in the future. Great job!!

Plenty Of Wildlife Sightings

Super fun!! What a well organized trip with beautiful weather and great food. The guides were efficient, safe and very tolerant of our large group of women. Thank you, Collin, for the awesome guitar. The canyon was gorgeous- replete with eagles, bighorn sheep, river otters and growling rapids. I want to do it again.

I Enjoyed Optional Paddling Opportunities

Sep 27, 2014 by Denise Chasse

The guides were extremely knowledgeable and respectful and they did an excellent job preparing the food! Additionally, Collin played a mean guitar! The trip was better than I could have imagined! It was relaxing and laid-back. Also, it was nice to have the option of paddling a kayak or ducky or paddle board.

A Wonderful Family Bonding Trip

Guides were extremely friendly, competent and helpful. Susan Munroe was in charge of our boat and we loved her. The food was also amazing! The overall experience was tremendous! It was a great family bonding trip that we will always remember.

Amazing Women's Trip

Sep 16, 2014 by Krista Fogerty

We did a "girls trip” (ok it was more of a middle-aged women trip), there were 27 of us on 5 boats and it was an absolute blast! The guides took great care of us and dealt with our antics in a fun and professional manner. The campsites were great and the food was absolutely AMAZING!!
