Approximately 2 hours
Guests will meet at our office located on 13521 Main Street in downtown Talkeetna where we provide a free shuttle to the Talkeetna River. At the river’s edge, you will participate in a brief safety lecture before launching and floating down six miles of pristine river. The Talkeetna river is a glacier-fed waterway teeming with salmon and other wildlife. Our guides are versed in describing the flora, fauna, and scenery along the way. We will look for bears, eagles, fish, beavers, moose, fox, and waterfowl during this float. When possible we will stop to visit Bald Eagles’ nests, see beaver dams, look for bear tracks, and float past an old miner’s cabin… all before joining the mighty Susitna River for the loop back to Talkeetna. On the Susitna River, there is a stunning view of Denali (weather permitting) and the entire Alaska Range. On clear days, the view is amazing. There will be plenty of opportunities to take photos! For an additional fee you will be able to purchase photos, we have a photographer available to take pictures of you, the raft, and your guide – with a stunning backdrop of Mt. McKinley! This is a perfect trip for all ages and for those who are hoping to get in multiple Talkeetna experiences in one day! Rain or shine we’re ready to show you a great time!!
