An exceptional rafting trip with awesome views and hikes!
This Alaska wilderness river rafting trip combines an exciting bush plane flightsee to our put-in with views of the rugged Talkeetna Mountains. The trip is a fun class III river run with many miles of contiuous whitewater. We run the only trips in this rarely visited backcountry. There are several excellent hikes included along the river route that feature beautiful waterfalls and rock formations. The 3 day trip version focuses on more hiking the first day. At night, relax around the campfire and enjoy a sumptuous dinner. This pristine little river runs inside its own narrow mountain-walled valley before reaching the confluence with the Matanuska River in the community of Chickaloon.
We offer paddle rafting for those who want a good work out on the almost continuous class III whitewater, or paddle assist with the oarsman. Optional helicopter flightsee to the put-in can be arranged instead of the bush plane.
The trip that you put together on the Chickaloon was a blast. Just wanted to let you know that your guides worked hard to make sure that the run was both memorable and carefree for us clients. I know that the other folks on the trip were equally satisfied with the level of service and attention to detail that NOVA provided. I plan to recommend your outfit to friends.
