What You Can Expect

Talkeetna River Float Trip

Great Day on the Talkeetna

After pickup from your hotel in Talkeetna, transfer to the starting point on the banks of the Talkeetna River. Receive a safety briefing and any necessary gear from your expert guide, then step aboard your sturdy raft and set off downriver.

The magnificent Talkeetna River, aka The River of Plenty, features flat water that is swift, cold and calm, offering an easy rafting experience that is suitable for all ages.

As you float along this quiet stretch of the Talkeetna River, your guide shares stories of local history and wildlife. Learn about the flora and fauna of the area, and keep an eye out for possible sightings (not guaranteed) of bald eagles, beavers, fox, moose, black bears and grizzly bears. Look for spawning salmon, giant ferns and freshwater streams, and get great views (on a clear day) of Denali and the Talkeetna Mountains.

Your 2-hour float trip ends with return to your Talkeetna hotel.
