Tour Details

The McKinley Run is a great introduction to whitewater rafting. You will float through predominately class I and II rapids (currents, small waves, and obstacles but also calm water) with one class III rapid (medium waves) for some added excitement. You may see moose, sheep, caribou and bear, as you raft downstream 11 miles along the most scenic portion of the Nenana River. A great trip for families!

Your first adventure is getting into your provided Gore-Tex drysuit. Drysuits were developed for people working and/or playing around freezing cold water, providing you with a waterproof exterior layer to wear over your own insulating layers. This provides the most comfortable rafting experience possible. Gore-Tex drysuits come with latex gaskets at the neck and wrists, and latex socks to keep your feet dry. Raft in comfort in and out of the water with full range of movement. We provide neoprene booties that slip over the latex sock, allowing your feet to warm themselves with your own body heat. A Coast Guard-approved Type V lifejacket is provided.

You will be led by a knowledgeable river rafting guide on a great rafting experience. If you wish to paddle during your adventure, please be aware that it requires a minimum of five or more paddlers. Raft types (oar or paddle) cannot be mixed; the guide will try to accommodate you on the same paddle raft or oar raft. Please indicate "number of guests wanting to paddle" when placing your order only if you want to paddle. Paddling is based on a minimum and cannot be guaranteed.

Please Note: If you are staying in the Talkeetna area (McKinley Princess Lodge, Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge, etc.), you are approximately 100 miles from the Denali Park main gate area, from where this tour departs. You are responsible for your own transportation to the Denali area.
