Our most popular Alaska whitewater trip for 38 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 National Scenic Glenn Highway 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 glaciers lateral moraine and “Lion Head”, a massive basalt rock wall from an ancient volcanic plug.
We have several options available for running this river trip.
NOVA provides all necessary river gear including dry-suits to wear over your clothing. Group discounts available for 10 or more! For more information on team building trips or groups to 35 or more, give us a call. We have lots of experience with helping both large and small groups; friends, wedding parties, business retreats, family gatherings and conventions. Ask about free RV and tent camping where the river trip ends at our facility at Hicks Creek, for NOVA clients only.
Our NOVA Talkeetna trip was perfect!!! We have told and re-told our stories a hundred times this week and bragging to people returning from the beach that we had the best vacation of all. Please accept our thanks, and our congratulations for being the best of the best.
