Our most gentle rafting trip! Enjoy the beautiful Alaskan scenery of the Denali National Park area.

Four Hour Scenic

The four hour Scenic Mild Water Run is just like the Full Day excursion without the whitewater. Experience beautiful scenery and enjoy a tasty picnic lunch while keeping your eyes open for wildlife. A perfect trip for families.
Call for available dates between June 5 and Aug 15 or book your party of four or more.

You have your choice of Oar Rafts or Paddle Rafts  (It takes 5 participants to paddle, when possible we combine parties to reach five or more).
Both oar rafts and paddle rafts run the same rapids on the river.  Perfect for 1st timers, an oar raft, is rowed by the guide while rafters sit, hold on and enjoy the view.  In a paddle raft you will be expected to follow instructions and be an active participant by paddling the raft down river.  You still have a guide but everyone has a paddle and the guide instructs you on how and when to paddle.
Our Shuttle Service provides pickup from local lodging, plus transportation to and from the river.

“I was initially concerned due to water temperature, but was quickly reassured when I was fitted with a “dry suit” that kept me warm and comfortable despite the chilly waters (36F). My guide, Peacock was great-assisting with all aspects of the trip and was very knowledgeable about the area and the river.”
