In 2016 we’ll be celebrating 50 years of motorless Colorado River rafting.
Holiday River Expeditions was founded in 1966 by Dee & Sue Holladay. A family run business offering multi day rafting trips on the Colorado, Green, San Juan & Yampa Rivers and Lodore Canyon. Mountain Biking trips on the White Rim Trail and The Maze in Canyonlands National Park and the San Rafael Swell. Attention to detail and interpretation are what sets Holiday apart. The guides will not only row you down the river, prepare amazing riverside meals and share their love of the river with you, they are well versed in the history and geology of the river canyons. We firmly believe in non-motorized river travel. We offer Oar rafts, Paddle rafts, Inflatable Kayaks, and new to the fleet, Stand-up Paddle Boards.

- Utah River Rafting
