Stick to your resolutions and flow into the New Year with the family with Holiday River Expeditions. Round up the kids, teens and adult children and head on an active, scenic and unforgettable family adventure. Choose from the new and improved programs launching this year and hike, bike, flow and raft your way into a healthy New Year.


Established in the 1960s, Holiday River Expeditions boasts a lineup of family-friendly, health-centric and adventure tours, year-round, and the new tours also focus on adventure, fitness and a healthy lifestyle.


For Yogi Families

Take a stretch on the wild side and practice yoga along Desolation Canyon on the Green River in Utah. Get in some family bonding and team building on the Balance and Flow trip, launching this summer. Raft through the rapids to your campsites and yoga classes and let the wilderness be your studio. With expert instructors in tow and nearly 84 miles of rafting during the six-day adventure, your family will appreciate the opportunity to stretch and center.


For Fitness Families

Get fit with the family and keep your resolution momentum going. Check out an array of outdoorsy activities featured on an Adventure Fitness excursion. This four-day trip includes swimming, hiking, kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding. Take advantage of the personal trainers and guides with some stretching, core work and mediation along the journey through the Westwater Canyons and Canyonlands National Parks in Utah.

Get Centered

Enjoy a centered, mindful, balanced trip during this four-day river retreat through Lodore Canyon. Venture on the Green River in Colorado using mindful movement tools in an incredibly beautiful setting. The tranquil practices and incredible views will leave you and the family refreshed and centered between mediations, hikes and scenic walks.


To Eat Clean

Whether you’re already a health-conscious group or just looking to cleanse, check out the four-day vegan wellness trip. Rafting along the Colorado River will help you work up an appetite just in time for a vegan meal, prepared by expert chef, wellness coach and author Tess Challis.


All new tours begin this summer, from early June to September, but book early, as many families made the same resolutions — to get healthy and travel more. Choose the best date and adventure for your family and stay fit while creating lasting memories this summer.
