Alaska River Rafting – Half Day Trips near Anchorage

Our exciting selection of scenic and whitewater half day river rafting trips north and south of Anchorage were developed for their special locations and features. From class I to class V, there’s a river trip for all ages and physical abilities to enjoy. These trips have been popular with locals and their visiting friends and relatives since 1975. Both locations are within “National Scenic Byways”.

Alaska River Rafting – Wilderness Trips

We have developed a group of multi-day Alaska wilderness river rafting trips that will get you into some unique backcountry. Our most popular are shorter trips of 2 to 4 days, affordable because of their limited bush flying logistics. Other trips are remote, 100+ miles from civilization and can be expensive and long. We have lots of experience on many rivers throughout Alaska. Contact us for more information on a particular area and river.
