We meet for your trip in Blanding (4&5-day) or Bluff (3-day), Utah.  If you are driving, your car can be left at the Super 8 in Blanding or Desert Rose Inn & Cabins in Bluff.  Departure time is 7:00 a.m. (Mountain Time), and so it is important that you attend our pre-trip orientation the night before your trip.

 

If you are flying, you can fly to Salt Lake City located 310 miles northwest of Blanding or 398 miles of  Bluff, Utah.  From there you can rent a car or take a shuttle to Blanding or Bluff, Utah.  If you need assistance with your travel arrangements, please ask your Holiday River Expedition reservation agent.
