Begin your tour with pickup from your Anchorage hotel between 9 and 9:30 a.m. Throughout the 2-hour drive to the town of Talkeetna, learn about the area from your guide and enjoy snacks and bottled water.
Upon arrival, indulge in a hearty Alaskan lunch. Then, begin your 2-hour jet tour aboard an enclosed jet boat, allowing you to travel the 20-mile river course in comfort. A naturalist will provide information about the local ecosystem and help you spot wildlife like nesting bald eagles and beavers throughout the ride.
Arrive on land and take a leisurely quarter-mile walk (400 meter) down a nature trail to a Dena'ia cultural center, which teaches visitors about the people whose history in the area dates back thousands of years. Then, visit an authentic trapper’s cabin with its original furnishing to learn how early trappers lived at the turn of the century.
Return to Anchorage at the end of your tour.
