Join Kathleen Leopardi-Anderson, owner of Personal Training Zone on our Lodore Canyon rafting trip for women. This tip will combine stretching, core work along with the peaceful meditation of Yoga with the exceptional natural beauty of the Green River. Each morning, we invite you to relax and breathe in the cool fresh air while reflecting upon the steep canyon walls and lush green forests surrounding us.

Our Yoga exercises will include practicing postures of strengthening our inner woman while we calm our mind. The peaceful and exquisite Lodore Canyon is an amazing place to restore both body and soul. We invite you to leave all your worries and your busy lifestyle behind and return to a more natural way of life for a few days as we journey down the Green River.

“Women tend to relax more by virtue of it being all women,” admits guide Jen Davison. “A frivolity and relaxation happens as well as a kind of empowerment.” Empowerment and transformation evolve as guests take on an outdoor-river environment, perhaps for the first time, find nourishment in nature, and witness skilled female guides tackle the river, with opportunities to row themselves. The guides will lead side canyon hiking, give the guest room for solitude and encourage time to relax, reflect and rejuvenate.



  • Deep narrow canyon of exceptional beauty
  • Excellent opportunity to observe wildlife
  • Great side canyons for intimate exploration
  • Exciting Class III and IV white water rapids

I keep using the word "majestic" when I describe the trip. Reconnecting with the wilderness and experiencing Lodore Canyon via the Green River is something that I will cherish for a lifetime. Words and even the photos cannot capture the untouched beauty of the region and sharing the experience with 9 other inspiring women across the country did wonders for my heart and soul. The guides were INCREDIBLE and I was floored by not only their professionalism but how genuine they were (you can train a river guide to get you down the river, but you can't train a person to be sincere, thoughtful, considerate, etc). These girls were not only strong and capable but they were truly remarkable.... They blew me away with their many talents. The food was over the top, the hikes were breathtaking and the women’s fitness trip added value with the core/stretch workouts. Everything blew my expectations out of the water and I can't thank you enough for helping to "find me" again. Sincerely, Water Logged.

I was impressed with the good condition of the bags, tents, sleeping bag and pillow. The guides: Susan, Erica and Tuesde were incredible. The trip itself is set up to be great but the guides made it epic!!! They were incredible young ladies, you can train a guide but you can't instill the personalities and passion that these girls had. The food was over the top!! Never in my wildest dreams could I imagine the meals that were made by the river, so good!! It was one of my best trips ever (and I go on lots of trips to many great palaces). My guides were awesome, I felt very safe going through the rapids because it was clear they knew what they were doing. They had so much knowledge to share about the areas we were going through. They had great personalities, were lots of fun and had zest for life. Tuesde is going to rock being a guide!!!

The Soul Soothing Flow Of The Green River
Guides were fantastic! Knowledgeable of geology, excellent boating skills, efficient at getting camp up and down, great chefs and super duper personalities! They really bonded with the group!! Fantastic scenery with a morning stretch session while listening to the flowing Green River really soothes the soul!!!

I really liked the day we played volleyball, and the food was really good on the whole trip.This trip was over the top! A perfect combination of exciting rapids, great campsites, amazing food, and relaxation. Our trip had 20 girls, 4 boats, and 4 guides--what a perfect girls weekend trip! The only labor was setting up and taking down our tents--the guides did all the rest: cooking, cleaning, rowing. I would highly recommend Holiday and the Gates of Lodore trip.

The guides EXCEEDED expectations!! They were fantastic. Hiking was great fun! I loved doing Yoga at the top! Well exceeded expectations!! Absolutely delicious food. I couldn't believe we were being cooked salmon dinner on the river! Very quick in loading and unloading boats. The ranger even commented that Holiday is the quickest and best of bringing the boats out of the water. I would highly recommend the ladies trip!! We had such a great time that we are trying to talk our husbands into a couple’s trip.

Guides were great. 'Uber' Guide Jessica and the next great 'Uber' Guide Lauren! Loved it when I went on the hike and loved it when I didn't. Sometimes the best activity is sitting next to a roaring river in a canyon, drinking cold white wine out of a plastic 'Go with the Flow' coffee mug and reading fiction! Holy cow, that was a lot of good food! Nothing like a four day women's trip - Wine, Women, Wrafting! It was wonderful.
