Let us take you deep into the heart of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park!
This Alaska wilderness whitewater river rafting trip is located in a truly wild area within the Wrangell St. Elias National Park, the largest national park in the country. The new and raw feel of the river headwaters is the result of the massive Bagley Icefield, the 16,000 ft.+ Wrangell Mountain peaks and the huge water volume of its rivers. All together, the area is one of the biggest visual experiences we’ve explored.
The Tana River segment is 35 miles long, and two days will be spent savoring its enormous waves and exploring the canyon. An exciting fly-in, float-out format, 10+ miles of Colorado River style pool-drop rapids, lots of bears, occasional bison sightings, huge vistas and a chance to explore Chitina, McCarthy and the Kennicott Historical Mining Site, contribute to make this trip as grand as Alaska.

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.
