ALASKA'S MOST CHALLENGING CLASS IV AND V WHITEWATER TRIP

This is Alaska’s premier whitewater trip and one of the best in North America! Prepare to get wet as this pristine river runs through three consecutive canyons; each more beautiful and more challenging than the last, with narrow routes, steep drops, beautiful pools and adrenaline pumping rapids all in a gorgeous semi-rain forest. We have two trip options: the two and half hour 2-canyon run with predominately class IV rapids or the four hour 3-canyon run which includes class V rapids; both offer hands-on participation in full paddle-boats or paddle-assist for increased maneuverability and power. Must be physically fit, able to swim and comfortable with the prospect of self-rescue.

TWO OPTIONS
Six Mile Creek has three canyons, each more challenging than the last:

Running canyon 1 and 2 focusing on the Class IV rapids or all three canyons, which includes some Class V rapids in the third and final canyon
Both trips include a mandatory (yet fun) in-river swim test before the start to help demystify the experience of self-rescue and check your swimming skill. For those adventurous Canyon 3 rafters, you get to enjoy a popular post-rapids swim after successfully navigating all three canyons.

All river gear including full dry-suits is provided. All tours are operated under permit by the Chugach National Forest. Must be able to swim and comfortable with the prospect of self-rescue.

TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

  • Alaska's most challenging whitewater tip and pioneered by us over 35 years ago!
  • Beautiful canyon run, with hands-on heavy participation style whitewater.
  • Narrow routes, steep drops, beautiful pools and adrenaline-rush rapids.
