Get Out on the River

Surrounded by the Alaska Range and Talkeetna Mountains, the Susitna River boasts some of the best views of Denali. Travel along the swift river on guided rafting excursions while soaking in the beauty and scanning for wildlife like bears and moose. Local guides provide all the gear and rentals, so a traveler’s only concern is packing a camera to capture the memories. Listen to the sounds of nature on a guided kayaking tour down the calm Talkeetna River or wilder Chulitna River. Suitable for all activity levels, jet-boat tours take passengers deep into Alaska’s wilderness to the wild and scenic Devil’s Gorge. Along the way, visit Dena’ina Athabascan settlements and authentic trapper’s cabins to learn about early life on the Last Frontier. For easy access to untouched fishing holes, book a chartered fishing excursion. Water taxis and jet boats take anglers on guided half-day or multi-day trips to river runs packed with all five species of Pacific salmon.
