In case you need to ask…here are our top five reasons why to choose Holiday River  Expeditions for your rafting adventure.


Family River Rafting


1. Holiday knows rivers and rafting.

A sheer passion for river rafting means Holiday is very familiar with the rivers you get to run with us. We know every bend in the rivers, each and every campsite, the rafting history of each river, and what critter made that mysterious noise in the middle of the night.



2. Holiday’s been around a long time.

Since 1966, Holiday has been offering river trips under the same ownership, which is an astounding length of time in any outdoor business. What that boils down to is, Holiday knows how to get the job done and do it well, our reputation is super darn good, and you, the client, will get superior service, safety, and memories.


3. A whopping 75% of our business is repeat and referrals.

Repeat business means people like what we do, and referrals mean they tell others what a great time they had on the Yampa, the Green, the Colorado, the Salmon. We’re proud of our repeat business rate, and we take it very seriously. Every Holiday trip is a wonderful trip, no matter how many times you run it with us.


4. Holiday’s rafts and all gear are safe, innovative, and practical.

Equipment safety and maintenance can make all the difference, and we believe it’s one of the most essential elements of a river trip. We take care of our gear and we’re always looking to innovation.



5. Our guides are river rock stars.

Extensive training is a huge part of a guide’s experience before they can actually take clients on a trip. Besides all the knowledge about safety, local flora, and fauna, geology, human history, river currents and navigation, hiking trails, food preparation, etc., our guides are just plain fun, funny, caring, interesting people who make your trip very memorable. We think they’re the best in the business, and we’re proud of the quality they add to your river rafting vacation.
