Our most popular wilderness rafting trip

Another of our famous fly-out and float-back wilderness trips.


The NOVA Talkeetna River trip is widely considered the premier Alaska wilderness multi-day Class III and IV whitewater river raft trip and it’s certainly our most popular!

This river trip starts and ends in Talkeetna, Alaska, about 110 miles north of Anchorage, and where most of the flights-seeing and climbs of Denali are staged.

 

We take bush planes 55 miles up the Talkeetna River and land on adjacent gravel bars. The flight-seeing includes chances to see Denali and an overview from above of the area you will be traveling through by river.

River highlights include plenty of Class III and IV whitewater, including a 10-mile plus stretch of continuous whitewater on Day 2. This is considered one of the longest rapids in North America!

 

Our experienced guides are also your hosts, who will prepare meals and set up camp. NOVA also provides all camping gear and whitewater gear to make it easy to participate. We float through some extremely scenic areas as well as world-class salmon runs. So, bring your fishing pole (don’t forget your Alaska fishing license) and camera.
