Imagine waking up cozy in your sleeping bag to the rising sun, sliding on your sandals, and strolling through a riverside campsite for coffee and breakfast. You spend the morning floating peacefully through a gorgeous canyon, listening to the gentle call of the yellow-bellied warbler and scanning for bighorn sheep. The river narrows and boulders emerge from the water’s surface, excitement comes in the waves and splashes of whitewater rapids. You arrive at the next campsite, yet another beachside oasis, and explore a side canyon, finding a secluded waterfall at the end of the trail. Rinsing off in the clear water is invigorating, and you return to your temporary home to a feast fit for royalty. After you eat, the sun begins to set, you may find yourself wondering, “How could this day get any better?” The answer, of course, is LIVE MUSIC!
In 2023, Holiday River Expeditions will host three specialty music trips! Join the Del Sol Quartet on the Yampa River and get swept away to another world through their ethereal string playing. If bluegrass is the soundtrack to your soul, then consider hopping on the Green River through Lodore Canyon with Salt Lake City-based band The Pickpockets to enjoy their expansive catalog of heartfelt originals and classic favorites. Or, float through the heart of Canyonlands National Park on the Colorado River and discover the passion and talent of Holiday’s very own Spencer Torman, joined by his bandmates of 15 years to share their melodic indie rock and folk tunes.
We’re so excited to welcome these professional musicians us on the river this year, elevating what is already an amazing experience. We hope you join us for what promises to be a magical adventure!
