    I have done the white rim with holiday 5 times, and each trip is the highlight of the year for me.  The scenery is spectacular.  The bigger than life red rock spires and bluffs that are prevalent throughout the ride give an abundance of photo opportunities. Doing the ride in 3 or 4 days allows for enough time to take in the scenery, and still get plenty of biking in each day. The guides for each of my trips have created an atmosphere of lighthearted fun and excitement balanced with plenty of knowledge about the geography and native american indians who inhabited the area in the past.  I'm always impressed with the great food they prepare and the organization around the kitchen.  The white rim trip has always been an unforgettable experience.

    We had a great time.  We appreciated the informed guides and  the educational experience they were able to provide.  Our 7 year old thinks it was the BEST trip ever!  The kids activity kit came in handy.  Making friendship bracelets and sand castles.  The ducky was his favorite!  Also, We never expected the food to be one of the highlights of a camping/rafting trip!

Itinerary

The itinerary of any river trip is always planned with maximum flexibility. Each trip will vary depending on weather, water flows, your group's interests, and the need to be courteous to other rafters. This is a sample itinerary for a two-day Fisher Towers trip on the Colorado River.

Day 1: Start at our headquarters at 8:00 a.m. Mountain Time in Green River, Utah. Make your last minute purchases (view our packing checklist to see items you can find at our store), then buckle up for a 90-minute van ride to the put-in at Dewey Bridge. Float leisurely through calm water. Look for bald eagles, beavers, great blue herons, and night herons. Camp within sight of the 12,000-foot Sierra La Sal and Fisher Tower formations; the openness of the river corridor makes for a stunning, expansive view of both sunset and sunrise.

Day 2: We'll approach class I and II rapids: great fun for inflatable kayaks. Pass beneath Castle Rock and the Priest-and-Nuns formation before lunch near White's Rapid.  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.
