Holiday has methodically grown its river rafting operation with quality staff and gear to all of the best escapes across the Colorado Plateau and beyond; from the unbridled Yampa River, to the reliable Green River; from thunderous whitewater chasms along the Colorado River to breathtaking scenery on the San Juan River.  Likewise our bike operation followed suit and now tracks across the best routes in the greater Moab mountain biking landscape shifting from lower to higher intensity rides. Our diverse trip options mean we acutely know how to set you and your friends & family up for an unforgettable whitewater rafting or Moab mountain biking experience.
