A Full Day White Water Rafting Alaska Adventure!

Full Day Trip

A guided scenic trip with whitewater thrown in.  Skirting the boundaries of Denali National Park down the glacier-fed Nenana River, this offers an excellent opportunity to experience wildlife in its natural environment and to travel the Great North Land as our early settlers traveled. This trip includes lunch served right on the river.  After lunch you are in for the ride of your lifetime through the Nenana River Gorge.

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.”
