Our most popular wilderness rafting Trip

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.

With a fly-out and float-back format, we take bush planes 55 miles up the Talkeetna River. The flightseeing includes chances to see the awe-inspiring King of the Alaska Range, Denali. There are great views of the Talkeetna Mountains and we often see bears, caribou and moose.

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.
