Whitewater Rafting on the Colorado River
The most famous river in the West: the mighty Colorado. The seminal whitewater experience for any outdoor enthusiast, Colorado River rafting trips have it all. Holiday is proud to offer trips on the Colorado for everyone from first-time river rafters to insatiable adrenaline junkies. Whether you opt for a mellow float or a whitewater rollercoaster, the Colorado River and its canyons also invite you to enjoy majestic vistas, wildlife, archaeological sites, mind-bending geology, and the opportunity to reconnect with the natural world. In addition, Colorado River rafting trips carry you through some of the most pristine dark sky in the United States. Out here, the Milky Way is more vibrant than you imagined possible.
Born in an alpine meadow high in Rocky Mountain National Park, the Colorado River cascades down through the mountains and canyons of the western Rockies, gathering strength and tributaries along the way. Our rafting trips on the Colorado begin just east of the Utah-Colorado border, and then flow south with the river all the way through Grand Canyon. Hop aboard a three-day trip through Ruby-Horsethief and Westwater canyons. Try an easy excursion past the Fisher Towers, just outside the town of Moab, Utah. Follow the Colorado into Canyonlands National Park and Cataract Canyon. And when you’ve done all those, discover the famed Grand Canyon, the biggest canyon of them all. From top to bottom, there’s a Colorado River rafting trip for everyone.
