Six Mile Creek, Alaska's most challenging class IV and V whitewater rafting trip was pioneered by NOVA!
This is Alaska’s premier whitewater raft trip, and one of the best in North America. There are three canyons, each progressively more challenging, with narrow routes, steep drops, beautiful pools, and adrenaline pumping rapids all in a gorgeous semi-rain forest. We offer two trip options: The 2 Canyon Run with predominately class IV rapids or The 3 Canyon Run which includes class V rapids in the third and final canyon. Both trips include a fun river swim before the start and the popular swim after the rapids! All river gear provided including full dry-suits to wear over your clothing. Under permit with Chugach National Forest for 28 years.
This run is a great success story for us. After demystifying the run privately with friends, we convinced the Forest Service to allow us to run commercial trips on it, and in those days it was done with non-self bailing rafts (bucket boats). There are few companies in the world who can say they were around and used them and especially on class IV and V whitewater.
You will need your own transportation to get to our location. This will provide you with the flexibility to stop and visit special locations like Hope or Cooper Landing before or after your trip with us. The drive from Anchorage is on the Seward Highway "National Scenic Byway".
Rental cars are now available in Whittier and Seward for pre and post cruise customers.

Since your close. Why not drive 16 miles down the Hope Road and visit this charming Alaskan community we call home in the summer. You’ll find great hikes, good fishing, interesting history, museum, historical cabins, great food, libations, live music and accomodations.
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
