Itinerary

Image

One of the advantages of a river trip is the flexibility of the daily itinerary.  It can vary widely from one trip to the next based on group desires, Mother Nature, and courtesy for other groups on the river.  This typical itinerary illustrates a two-day Fisher Towers trip on the Colorado River.

Day 1:  Meet group at headquarters at 8:00 a.m. Mountain Time in Green River  Utah . You can buy any last minute items from our accessories store at this time.  (our packing checklist  for a list of items you can find at our store.) Buckle up for a 90-minute van ride to the put-in at Dewey Bridge.  Float leisurely through calm water. Observe bald eagle, great blue heron and snowy egret habitats. Camp within sight of the 13,000' Sierra La Sal and Fisher Tower formations.  Perhaps the most picturesque camp on the upper Colorado.

Day 2:  Class II rapids appear in the Colorado and a flotilla of inflatable kayaks provide the action.  Pass Castle Rock and Priest-and-Nuns formation before lunch at Salt Wash by Arches National Park.  Passenger vans meet us at the take out and provide 60 minute transportation back to Green River. Our expected time of arrival back at our headquarters is 4:00 to 5:00 p.m.

First time in Utah and what a wonderful and adventurous experience. I will do it again!

by Biren & Nisha Patel on Holiday River Expeditions

An amazing experience, far different than any other regular vacation I have ever taken! The guides were fantastic, food was amazing, and it was very neat to be in the middle of nowhere yet feel taken care of and safe.

by Nicole Pavlovich on Holiday River Expeditions

I would want the same guides next time for sure!!!! The whole staff from beginning to end was over the top AMAZING!!!! I am sure that my mom and I drove the office staff Lauren and Karen crazy with all of our phone calls and crazy questions. The guides made the WHOLE trip!! TJ, Sherpa, T-bird, Josh and Jim. The guys were so fun and at the same time so professional. My mother that was on the trip with me is 71 and ALL the guides went above and beyond to make sure she had what she needed to be comfortable and safe. The food they made was amazing and fresh and the hikes and storytelling was so interesting. I would so do this again and would hope to have the same guides!!!!!!

Thank you all for taking great care of me and my mother!!!!!
