Our popular Alaska whitewater rafting trip and solstice celebration!
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. The last segment has twilight conditions with mystical views.
Trips generally end around 11:00 pm which makes your arrival back in Anchorage around 1:00 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.
Combine this trip with any of our "Matanuska Glacier adventures" for a full day outing and a $20 discount on the river trip.
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
