Denali River Rapids Rafting Trip

An exciting, splashy good time awaits you! This river rafting trip begins at the entrance to Denali National Park and journeys 11 river miles to Healy, Alaska. During this two-hour whitewater adventure, expect to encounter over 10 major Class III to IV rapids in the Nenana River Canyon. The Denali National Park frontier is the setting on your river left shore with Mt. Healy rising over 3,000 feet to the summit.

Exciting wave-trains and powerful hydraulics create rapids such as “Razorback,” “Iceworm,” “Cable Car,” “Royal Flush,” and “Coffee Grinder.” Choose an oar raft and hold on or a paddle raft for extra hands-on excitement. Both options are guided. We provide a full drysuit for each rafter and you use your own clothing layers such as long pants, long sleeves, thick socks to stay warm and dry. Your shoes stay behind at the check-in office, and river booties are provided for use while rafting in Denali.

The minimum age for this activity is 12.
