Holiday’s three-day upper San Juan River trip is all about calm water and archaeology. Raft through the improbably uplifted rocks of Comb Ridge and into a flowing desert oasis. Visit sacred riverside cultural sites that have stood for millennia. Surround yourself with the stories left behind by the people who have called the river home for thousands of years. Walk past ancient indigenous cultural sites, contemplate rock art, and imagine yourself as the latest in the long legacy of humans to explore this area.
You’ll camp out in a wonderland of red rocks and nature while our guides take care of all the details. They’ll row the boats, cook the food, and provide expert interpretation about the history and nature around you. This is a perfect trip for families with young children, or people looking for a gentle introduction to rafting. It’s also fun for inflatable kayaks! A trip on the upper San Juan river is the best way to experience the culture and scenery of the Four Corners. Three days provide just enough time to unplug and leave still wanting more.
“This trip was among the best we’ve taken in the last decade. We decided to make this a reunion trip with a few couples from earlier times in our lives. It was a great decision and allowed us to become reacquainted in an atmosphere that was both intimate as well as beautiful. Your guides were truly facilitators of our enjoyment in every possible facet of the experience. Kudos to Holiday River Expeditions for putting in the hard work that allows people like us to step outside of our daily lives into such an incredible environment.” (Wayne and Kathy Adams)
