Talkeetna River trip, our most popular Alaska multi-day class III & IV whitewater river rafting trip!
Our Talkeetna River trip is so special in so many ways that its considered the premier Alaska wilderness whitewater raft trip, and it’s our most popular multi day river trip.
The fly-out, float-back format starts with an exciting bush plane flight from the Talkeetna Airport. This gives you an excellent overview of theTalkeetna Mountains and its wilderness this river travels through. Strong salmon runs are found along the Talkeetna River which encourage bears along the shore for good photograph opportunities! Caribou frequently wander in from the nearby Nelchina herd, and we often see moose and eagles by the river.
One of the highlights of the upper Talkeetna River is the class III and IV whitewater through the heavily forested Talkeetna Canyon. Depending on water level there's 10 to 14 miles of nonstop whitewater, one of the longest rapids in North America!
On our final day we float into the wide Susitna Valley where we can catch a view of Mt. McKinley on a clear day and get some last-minute fishing in before reaching Talkeetna. If you like, you’ll still have time that day for an optional flightsee of Mt. McKinley.

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.
