It doesn't matter if you are an experienced adventurerous family, or even a family traveling with children who haven't really explore the great outdoor before, Talkeetna River Guides offer scenic float trips that fit a broad spectrum of tastes.
If you haven't been to Alaska before, when you are there you'll realize few places in the world rival the scenic beauty of Denali (which is also known also as “the Great One” in the Tanana Athabascan dialect - fun fact!) as well as the glacier-fed river valleys of the southern slopes of the Alaska Range.
There are a number of trips that you can choose from, such as the Chulitna River Raft Tour which is a 4 hour tour, and the 2 hour Talkeetna River Natural History Float Trip
If you want to enjoy more of the area, Talokeetna River Guides offers overnight and multi-day float trips where you can get even more deep into Alaska’s wilderness.
All of these longer trips include transportation to the launch site, as well as meals, and camping equipment. Keep those eyes peeled because wildlife sightings are common on these trips! You might just see bears, moose, porcupine, wolves, eagles, and even foxes!
