Your rafting adventure starts near the Denali National Park entrance, and ends downriver in Healy, Alaska. Round-trip transportation provided.
Get the whole enchilada on this combination of the “McKinley” and “Canyon Run”. A brief break in the middle gives you time for a quick snack if you wish to bring one.
Begin with the “McKinley Run” A spectacular trip over class II, III water through the most scenic and beautiful portion of the Nenana River. This is your chance to sit back and enjoy the rugged wilderness.
Continue on with the “Canyon Run”! Hang on! It’s whitewater ahead! You’ll get wet and enjoy every minute of it as we head for Healy. Get into real whitewater rafting as you hang on through thrilling rapids such as “Cable Car,” “Coffee Grinder,” and “Ice Worm”!
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.
