Comfort zones move front and center on Holiday River Expeditions’ newest river rafting trip for summer 2023.

Intro to Overnight Rafting on the Colorado River is for people who may be new to camping and/or new to river trips and/or who are introducing children to the wilderness for the first time.

The elements of any Holiday River Expeditions are a river, a boat and the ingredients that make for comfortable camping. The company’s new-for-2023 departures are designed to pay particular attention to alleviating the concerns and anxieties that some first-timers may bring with them. Please see:
“Whitewater rafting looks exciting but can feel intimidating if you’re new to it. We designed our Intro to Overnight Rafting trip as a way to welcome individuals or families to the river lifestyle. Expert guides and the casual pace of this trip make it accessible and fun, even if it’s someone’s first time rafting, camping, or both,” explains Trip Leader, Liz Hall. She helped design this new program for Holiday River Expeditions (
The two 2023 season departure dates for this new, 3-day/2-night introductory program are; July 18-20 and Aug. 8-10. Children ages 5 and up are welcome. From an early morning meet-up on day 1 at Holiday River’s headquarters in Green River, Utah, to the journey’s end at the river take-out, this entrée into river rafting is designed to be stress-free, engaging and fun. Young and old guests delight in camping on the river bank under a canopy of stars and having an option to play on stand-up paddleboards or in inflatable kayaks on calm stretches (Class I rapids) of the Colorado River. The easy-paced journey covers 25 scenic river miles start to finish.
