An exciting rafting combo trip that begins with with a helicopter flight-seeing experience!
This back country river trip is combined with either mountain biking or a helicopter flight to access the put-in. From there, we float out to the Glenn Highway.
The exciting and scenic helicopter flight along the Talkeetna Mountains is our ticket to accessing the put-in for this special trip. We ran our first raft descent of this river in 2003 and it quickly became a favorite of the guides. Imagine a very small river located in a forested mountain valley with a mix of dramatic mountain and canyon walls.
Then add an eight mile obstacle course with continuous class III rapids and several very exciting class IV drops in a total distance of twelve miles .A number of necessary stops are made to soak up the beauty and replenish energy. You experience more nonstop participatory fun than any day rafting trip in Alaska.
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
