Designed for private parties celebrating the solstice!
For private parties of 6 or more, the evening Lion Head raft trip is traditionally the high-water run of the day and is popular with Alaskans celebrating the long summer daylight near Solstice. We provide a secluded on river party location after the whitewater segment with campfire and barbacue equipment. All you need is food and your favorite beverages. Alcoholic beverages can be consumed at the party location only. You'll have until midnight to celebrate with your friends.
Trips generally end around 12:00 midnight which makes your arrival back in Anchorage around 1:30 am. There are accommodations and more camping facilities locally for those who wish to overnight. Free RV and tent camping right where the trip ends at our Hicks Creek facility for NOVA clients only. Our large deck and fire pit are also available to use after the trip.
"I want to take this opportunity to tell you what a great time we had on your Talkeetna River trip. Your guides were superbly skilled in maneuvering through the canyon rapids which immediately allowed us to enjoy the excitement of the whitewater. Having participated in numerous commercial and private river trips, we were most impressed with your guide’s skills and the quality of your equipment."
