Join Holiday for a special stargazing trip in Labyrinth Canyon this summer. Few places on the planet can match the serenity of Labyrinth. This section of the Green River is calm, which makes it ideal for quiet floating or paddling an inflatable kayak or stand-up paddleboard. The scenery, however, will take your breath away. Smooth, massive canyon walls rise out of the river, colored fifteen different shades of red and orange. There are also good hiking opportunities and fascinating historical sites to visit.
This five-day trip gives your mind a chance to unwind from the rush of your life back home. Spend your mornings hiking in a side canyon or to the saddle at Bowknot Bend. While away the afternoons floating through red-rock splendor. And at night, adjust your eyes upwards into the cosmos. We’ll be floating through one of the few remaining pockets of pristine dark sky in the United States. As a result, Labyrinth Canyon is one of the best places for stargazing in Utah. Stretch out on a sandy beach, look up, and let your guides lead you on an intimate encounter with the universe.
Special for 2020! For the ultimate in desert adventures, consider combining this five-day trip with our Cataract Canyon stargazing trip. Instead of leaving the trip at Mineral Bottom, just keep floating. Learn more about this 10-day trip option here.

“This was my first commercial raft trip. It was well-planned, and yet spontaneous! The philosophy of being in the moment seemed to be at the heart of everything we did. Our guides offered a morning “quiet float” where we just sat on the rafts and pondered our experience. This was one of my favorite moments. Each evening we were provided an educational moment about the night sky (which was incredible because of the lack of light pollution) and I learned more on those five nights than my previous 35 years of sky watching. The amount of work the guides put into our adventure was astonishing. This company truly gets what it means to have a river “experience”, not just a vacation. Oh, and the food was great!” (Forest Jordan)
