NOVA, the company Alaskans prefer for their outdoor adventures.
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. This is true because of the scenic quality of the locations, two are within "National Scenic Byways", and the special attributes of the rivers and areas. They're not located at a major tourist destination where the common practice of courting the accompanying captured audience helps sell an inferior experience.
Alaska River Rafting - Wilderness Trips
We have developed a group of multi-day wilderness river rafting trips that will get you into some very beautiful and unique backcountry in Alaska. Our most popular are not as remote as some, these are shorter trips of 2 to 4 days, affordable because of the unique logistics and offer lots of very fun whitewater, hiking and bush plane flight. 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.
