Rafting in Alaska offers many different types of experiences. We work with the best outfitters in Alaska who run trips on the rivers we feel offer outstanding wilderness opportunities. Each river has its own characteristics. Some of the rivers have big whitewater while others offer exstensive wildlife viewing or great fishing. The one thing they all have in common is that they access the wild and captivating Alaska backcountry.
The Tatshenshini-AlsekWildernessPark is part of the world's largest conservation unit. This Canadian and U.S. wildland encompasses 27 million acres including two mountain ranges and five parks and preserves. Two spectacular river valleys, the Tatshenshini and Alsek lay at the heart of it.
The Kongakut River is above the Arctic Circle. Summer brings 24 hours of light so the trips are run in a leisurely manner. Its headwaters are in the Brooks Range and it flows north to the Beaufort Sea. This river through the Artic National Wildlife Refuge offers the opportunity to see one of the largest animal migrations in the US. The migration of the Porcupine Caribou Herd is a highlight of this trip.
For a premier whitewater wilderness trip nothing beats the Talkeetna River. On this river the wildlife abounds and the fishing offers rainbow trout, artic grayling and Dolly Varden to name a few. These are shorter trips, just five days and easily accessed from Anchorage.
Come to Alaska and have a true wilderness experience!
