My friend and I did the two hour trip on the Nenana River. WOW!! What a great time. We did class 3 and 4 rapids. Our guide was so much fun and very informative about the area. He gave us a wonderful ride. Stayed perfectly dry with the rain suits they gave us to wear. Received our "glacial facials" from... More

With great apprehension, (I'm 62), I agreed to white water raft with my husband while in Denali. I'M SOOO GLAD I DID!!! Oh my goodness!! Our guide Jody, was AMAZING & very skilled with guiding our raft down the Nenana River! It was the highlight of our trip as we "rafted" thru the rapids, & enjoyed the picture-perfect Alaskan scenery!!... More

Were running late because of the construction on the way from Talkeetna to Denali but they let us get with our group because they were still getting dressed for the trip. Could kind of tell they were irked but that was our fault. Anyway the guide Jeremy ended up being great and allowed me to take photos at some times... More

My wife and I reserved the 1/2 day (4 hour) Nenana oar ride. The day before the tour, we were told that it was changed from the 4 hour ride to the 2 hour ride because not enough people had reserved the 4 hour ride. They refunded me the difference in cost but I was still frustrated because we wanted... More

We chose to paddle raft the Nenana Gorge and we didn't regret the choice for a second! The staff got us suited up in our dry suits and we were off. Zach, our guide, kept us safe and in the raft. He was knowledgable and engaging. My guy even decided to go for a swim during a lazy section. I... More

My dad and I did the paddle rafting together. Our guide was great, he was experienced and had been rafting around the world, and he steered the raft so that our trip was exciting but totally safe; no one even came close to falling out of the boat. Everyone got splashed but it wasn't cold because we wore dry suits.... More

We had an afternoon free while in Denali and decided to give rafting a try. The wife and I took our 4 kids ages 6-13 and they loved it and cannot wait to go rafting again. Our guide, katie, was very friendly and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this.
