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.

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
