An unparalled deep backcountry rafting experience!
Our Copper River trip traces the historical path used by the first Alaska explorers, native traders and the copper miners, to penetrate through the massive Chugach Mountain Range from the interior to the coast.
Childs Glacier near Cordova. Alaska’s fourth largest river travels from the dry interior climate to the temperate rainforest along Prince William Sound. Its route through the Chugach Mountains, bordering the Wrangell St. Elias National Park, is the main flyway for most of the waterfowl in North America during early summer and fall.
A world class spectacle of glaciers, icebergs and wildlife. Railway relics of the turn of the century copper mining era combine to make this journey a wilderness experience rich with human history. In fact, the United Nations named the Copper River delta a World Heritage Site!

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
