LGBTQ Cataract Canyon Sober Rafting Trip
Holiday River Expeditions is partnering with our friends at the The Venture Out Project, for our third year offering of a LGBTQ Colorado River Rafting Trip; this time an intentionally sober rafting trip through Cataract Canyon. The LGBTQ community has a long and often overlooked relationship with the natural world and we are hoping to help change that perception. These affinity trips are a chance to reclaim a long-standing and meaningful connection to these wild places while having a world-class adventure vacation.
Holiday River Expeditions has a long history of fostering an inclusive and restorative ethos on all of our river trips, and was a pioneer in starting women’s specific rafting trips in the mid 1980’s. Now with the leadership of Lauren Wood, Holiday’s 3rd generation co-owner, we have centered queer and non-binary leadership from the top down in Holiday’s management and guide culture. Our partners, The Venture Out Project was founded by and created for the LGBTQ community. They are committed to facilitating a variety of wilderness experiences that are for the queer and trans community, by the queer and trans community. With two years and multiple trips under our belt, The Venture out Project and Holiday are stoked to continue fine-tune creating this affinity group space on some of America’s most iconic rivers.
Legendary Cataract Canyon sits in the heart of Utah’s Canyonlands National Park. Our whitewater rafts offer dynamic and comfortable transportation to side canyon grotto’s, waterfalls and ancient Pueblo ruins that are otherwise inaccessible within the Park. On this backdoor expedition through Canyonlands we see the most vivid contrast between serene tranquility and all-out high adventure with world class whitewater.
