Full description

Splash and paddle your way through the scenic wilderness of Denali National Park on this Alaskan whitewater rafting tour. Choose an oar raft or paddle raft depending on how you want to hit the waves and enjoy an optional shuttle service directly from your hotel.

Start with pickup or meeting your guide at the meeting point, then prepare to get wet and enjoy every minute of it as you head for Healy, 11 miles downriver. Set near Denali Park, experience some of the best waves and scenery Alaska has to offer.

Perfect for first-timers, an oar raft, is rowed by the guide while rafters sit, hold on, and enjoy the view to the fullest. In a paddle raft, you’ll join in on the action as an active participant by paddling downriver. Your guide will be beside you, providing instructions on how and when to paddle.

Before getting in the water, gear up in included Gore-Tex dry suits, neoprene boots, and life jackets. Then, the adventure officially starts. Hang on through thrilling rapids such as “Razorback, “Coffee Grinder,” and “Ice Worm.”

After you’ve had your fill of thrills, you’ll be transferred back to your hotel or the meeting point, depending on the option you book.
