Colorado River rafting doesn’t get much better than this! Our Westwater Canyon 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.


  • Great introduction to river rafting
  • Excellent choice if you are short on time
  • Exciting class III & IV rapids
  • Stunning wilderness canyon with unique rock formations

Good Old Fashioned Fun!

Jul 20, 2014 by Glen & Natasha Grundy

Our family unit of four (two young boys) had an unforgettable experience! From the rapids, to the fishing, to the wildlife, to the food, to the social interaction, all very enriching and genuine good old fashioned fun!

Same Trip, Different Experience

Jul 15, 2014 by Julie Guiney

Everything is done very well and the guides are super personable. We did the exact same trip over the exact same weekend as last year and had a totally different experience. The water was running about twice as fast so although it felt like we were on the river about the same amount of time the 1st and 2nd day, we got in a lot more hikes which were really fun, too. The guides were just as great as last years, very friendly and helpful and got us through the big rapid safe and sound. We stopped for lunch and camped overnight in all different locations which made exploring interesting. It was so nice to be on the river with huge canyon walls surrounding us and to be away from the day to day events of life. Thanks!

AWESOME all the way around!!

Dave, Justin, Zac, and Colin made this one of our most fun and relaxing vacations ever! They were fun, the food was extraordinary, the time spent rafting vs relaxing a perfect ratio, and those wonderful guides anticipated our every need. Highly recommend!!

The River Transformed My Grandchildren

Jun 16, 2014 by Web & Joan Golden

We brought our six grandchildren and the guides went out of their way to make sure the experience was memorable. Reaching camp early each afternoon, they took them on hikes after unloading the boats and played catch with them after dinner. The meals were fantastic with amazing menus in the middle of no-where. We wanted our six grandchildren, ranging in age from 11-21 to have the experience of a 3 day, 2 night journey on the Colorado River with Holiday River Expeditions. We knew we would not be disappointed as we have traveled with Holiday River in 1997. These kiddos who have grown up in Johnson County, KS without any previous camping experience found out how self-sufficient and independent they could be. They set up and broke down their camp sites, were able to kayak on the calm part of the river and experience the excitement of the rapids later in the trip. This was a memorable trip for all of us.

Holiday Follows Through

The office staff worked with our organization to design and deliver a custom program for a group of international business executives. From start to finish, I was thoroughly impressed with the organization, customer service, and professionalism of Holiday Expeditions.

The Hiking Was Very Cool

Hiking was far better than expected. The side trips to see Native American art were very cool.
