This unique Alaska rafting trip starts near its source, the Matanuska Glacier!
A great family float trip for younger children and seniors with a unique photo stop at the spectacular Matanuska Glacier. Launch is generally at the glacier terminus and allows us to row up to the ice and outflow. The trip is predominantly Class II with some Class III rapids which makes this trip suitable for ages 5 and up. The Glacier fork "Main" of the Matanuska River eventually meets up with the Lion Head fork "South" so that both trips end at the same location, our Hick's Creek facility where you're parked. If your looking for a trip with awesome views along the Glenn Highway National Scenic Byway, the huge Matanuska Glacier, and an easy float with a little light whitewater then this one is it!
I took a trip down the Matanuska River with you when I lived in Anchorage in the early 80’s. After moving back last year and taking a trip with you that summer, I’ve since made four more with NOVA this year. I find your trips to be an excellent way to initiate my visitors to the wonders and joys of Alaska. I want to reiterate my thanks and appreciation to everyone on your staff, from those in the office at Chickaloon to the professional and personable guides insuring a bitchin’ time on the river. I can assure I will be going again.
Sincerely, Dale Hoffman, Alaska
