A popular and affordable wilderness rafting trip.
This river raft trip combines the exciting rapids of the Lion Head run with a seldom-traveled segment of the Matanuska River near Anchorage, Alaska. Enjoy 30 miles of river touring from the Matanuska Glacier to Chickaloon, Alaska.
The trip starts with a run through the rapids, and ends with a mellow float along the scenic segment below the glacier and the magnificent peaks of the Chugach Range. You’ll be treated to a fine dinner prepared by your guide. Kick back and allow this area to overtake your senses.
There are opportunities to explore several side drainages for tracks of the abundant wolves in this area. Sightings are rare, but it’s not uncommon to hear them. Because of the easy logistics, this trip is very affordable for families and can include youngsters under 12 who are excluded from the whitewater segment.Halibut dinner.
Like all our multi-day trips, everything you need for camping is included.
The four of us want to thank NOVA for its professional management of our Talkeetna trip. Your guides are a credit to your organization. I will continue to recommend NOVA. It is refreshing to see such professionalism and enthusiasm from these people who do the job every day.
