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 flight from the Talkeetna Airport gives you an excellent overview of this Alaska wilderness area before we start our journey down the river. Strong salmon runs are found along the Talkeetna River but so are the bears! 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 IV whitewater through the heavily forested Talkeetna Canyon. Ten to 14 miles of nonstop whitewater, one of the longest rapids in North America, is sure to please the first-timer and the experienced.
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 McKinley.
