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.

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
