Our most popular Alaska whitewater trip for 39 years!
The perfect Alaska whitewater rafting trip for first-timers or experienced river runners! An exciting, glacier fed, class III & IV Alaska 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 have several options available for running this river trip and to fit most desires.

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.
