Rafts, Vans, Mountain Bikes, and Camping Gear
From custom-built rafts with handmade frames right down to each item that we pack into them, we run a tight ship. Holiday has spent more than 50 years focusing on the details. We know that impeccable gear matters. Clean, comfortable, safe, and stylish, we check every piece of gear before we take it out on the river or trail. Our packing system is thoughtful, efficient, and honed over years of trial and error: we even have custom-made square coffee pots because they fit better than round ones!
Our guides are taught from their rookie season to have an eye ever-focused on innovation. Dee Holladay blazed a trail as a river pioneer and innovated many of the river practices that are now industry-wide standards. We carry on his tradition in our seemingly insatiable search for the best way to do just about everything.
Perhaps the most important piece of gear that we leave at home is a motor. Holiday is proud to say that we do not use motorized craft on any of the rivers we run. We believe that the best way to experience a river is to go at its own speed. It’s part of why our motto is “Go With The Flow”. A motor-less trip is simply a better trip.
