Colorado River rafting doesn’t get much better than this! Our Westwater Canyon trip takes us down a segment of the Colorado River that is magnificent and is often referred to as a miniature Grand Canyon. The beauty and grandeur of this section of the Colorado River offers memorable sights such as pristine beaches, charming side canyons, and beautiful campsites.

Westwater Canyon is a great rafting trip for those who want the beauty and thrills of a traditional Colorado River rafting vacation, and yet only have a few days available for their river rafting tour. Westwater: the ultimate two or three-day getaway.

Had such a wonderful first-time overnight rafting experience! The guides were all so wonderful, accommodating, and knowledgeable! The food was fantastic; every meal was amazing and now I know I love Israeli melon! The trip was everything I could have asked for- breathtaking scenery, ultimate relaxation, and pure excitement and fun! Thanks for everything, I will definitely be coming back for another adventure!

I had an excellent time with Ben and Lexi as our guides!! They were knowledgeable, friendly and more than accommodating during the entire trip. The three day tour down Westwater Canyon was gorgeous and I was interested to learn about the history of the canyon from the guides. Great job to everyone at Holiday!!

I absolutely LOVED my river guides, Lauren and Sarah!!! They were sweet, intelligent, thoughtful, knowledgeable, safety conscience, funny, and excellent cooks and entertainers!! As a single mom of 5 young children, my excursion w/ Holiday River Expeditions was just what the doctor ordered to recharge my batteries so that I could return home and be the best me possible for my family. It was wonderful to be spoiled by my river guides, not having to lift a finger and being chauffeured down an amazingly beautiful river.

This was my 4th raft trip and 2nd with Holiday. I talked my cousin into going with me, she's not the out doors type and she loved it. We were welcomed warmly by our guides who were most helpful our whole trip. We had great food. lots of fun. Our guides were great sources of information about our surroundings and history of the people and places we saw. I think my cousin will never forget swimming in the rapids and how fast Leland got her back in the raft when she was done. We are both ready to go again next year with Holiday.

I was apprehensive because I had never white water rafted in my life and hadn't camped out in a long time. But it was the best vacation I've ever had. Perfect balance of getting away from civilization and 5-star service.

No matter how many times we enjoy the holiday it still seems new and exciting. Sean's dutch oven enchiladas were a welcome twist! This was my first trip with my wife and 8th trip with my 83-year-old grandmother. It was great to bond over the rapids and share stories in the evenings. River rafting with Holiday truly brings families together.

I just got back from a two-day trip down Westwater with Tim, Chet and Vicky.
It was an amazing trip in all respects - the rapids were fun, the scenery was breathtaking, and the guides sprinkled the two days with interesting geology and history of the area. Fabulous food, too! Before we left Green River in the vans for our adventure, Dustin expertly reglued my decrepit Tevas for me after I asked for a little duct tape! A truly full-service organization!

I won the trip in a raffle at work so did not research the company prior to receiving it. Expected more choices for hikes, but limited due to terrain, time available before dinner time. Our guides, Melia, Justin, Brian, Sandy and Tilt were very efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. We felt they maintained high standards and were extremely hard-working. They also seemed to appreciate working for Holiday, and the equipment the company provides.

As usual, our guides exceeded our expectations. They were the perfect combination of safe and fun! I've been on this trip three years running, and each year I am blown away by the service they provide at Holiday!! The guides are amazing, the food unbelievable (for camping) and the starry nights are the best. Already looking forward to our trip next year. Thank you Holiday!
