Our most popular Alaska whitewater trip for 40 years!
The perfect Alaska whitewater rafting trip for first-timers or experienced river runners! This exciting glacier fed class III & IV whitewater rafting trip is just 2 hours drive NE of Anchorage via the Glenn Highway National Scenic Byway and next to the 27 mile long Matanuska Glacier. The main rapids are several miles long and the result of a squeeze play between the glacier lateral moraine and “Lion Head”, a massive basalt rock wall from an ancient volcanic plug. The remainder of the trip is swift water, exceptional scenic vistas and intermittent class II and III rapids. We provide all necessary river gear including dry-suits to wear over your clothing.
We have several options available for running this river trip to fit most desires.
Combine this river trip with any of our Matanuska Glacier adventures for a full day outing and get $20 off the river trip.
