Respect for the environment and its interconnection with every living thing: that’s what makes your trip with Holiday special. This respect isn’t an afterthought for our company, but rather the foundation of it. These rivers have given us everything: from enjoyment and adventure to a deep sense of peace and belonging, and the very sustenance of life both in ecosystems and our bodies. Water is life. Say it again! Water IS life.
That’s why we use oars on our rafts, and never motors. It seems to us that rushing to get there is exactly what you took a vacation to get away from. We have spent well over 50 years cultivating a unique culture at Holiday River Expeditions, that is founded upon deep respect: for the Land, for the River, and for you, our Guests. Our guides are selected for their respect for the environment and contributions to preserving the rivers and trails we love.
Because we are all connected, our approach to working on behalf of the environment is multifaceted. In hopes of inspiring action, we provide interpretation about the natural world on all of our trips. We continually hone our efficient design at our headquarters to work smarter. And finally, we work regularly with partner organizations to focus on systems-wide change.
