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

Bachelor Party Float!

Jun 15, 2015 by Sean Connelly

Top notch trip. My friends arranged a three day trip down Westwater Canyon for my bachelor party. The trip was incredible! The river and surrounding canyons were beautiful. Our guides, Julian and Collin were great. They prepared amazing meals and snacks throughout the float and led us on great hikes up the many side canyons and of course made sure we got plenty of splashes in the rapids! At the end of the float the only complaint was that it had to end.

Enjoyment From Day 1

Jun 10, 2015 by Rob & Jaida Berman

Certainly the guides exceeded any expectation I had. I was sitting by the fire after day 1 of a 3 day trip and felt like we had received more than what I expected for the whole time. I like that your folks are so organized yet they don't ever let that stand in the way of taking care of the guest. You run a great company. I enjoyed hearing from them about your training practices as a business owner.

Wouldn't Change A Thing

Our expectations were blown out of the water! Everything was absolutely wonderful! We had such an amazing trip on Westwater. We were blown away by the guides' expertise and knowledge of the river and surrounding landscape. The trip was educational, relaxing and exhilarating all in one. The food was over the top good, we literally wouldn't have changed a single thing. We will be back next year to explore a different section of the Colorado River!

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

Oct 15, 2014 by Kim Hill

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

Oct 06, 2014 by Connie Sliwinski

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.
