Get ready for the rafting adventure of a lifetime!

On this amazing journey, which begins below the entrance to Denali National Park, you'll get wet and enjoy every minute of it as we head for Healy, 11 miles down river.

Throughout this adventure, you'll be led by a knowledgeable river rafting guide, and state-of-the-art gear will be available for your use. This excursion is Class III to IV Whitewater for intermediate to advanced boaters. It includes medium-sized waves, fast current, and obstacles that need to be maneuvered around to large waves, very fast current, and difficult maneuvers. It is not for the faint of heart. However, if you are a first-time rafter, your expert guide is able to recognize the river's best line and direct the raft safely through the water.

As you make your way down the Nenana River, you'll experience thrilling rapids such as "Cable Car," "Coffee Grinder," and "Ice Worm."

  • This tour includes:
  • Round trip transportation from your Denali lodge or hotel
  • A thrilling whitewater rafting adventure
  • Services of a knowledgeable river rafting guide
  • Use of state-of-the-art gear
  • An amazing Alaskan experience!
