Drift slowly away for an intimate encounter in Denali
This Denali rafting trip is perfect for families with small children and those wanting a bit less splash. The raft trip begins at Denali Park Village in the midst of local lodges.
Enjoy the Alaskan splendor and a view of the Yanert Fork River merging with the waters of the Nenana River below the Musher’s Monument, a natural rock formation distinctly resembling a musher driving a sled and team of dogs. While passing by Mount Fellows and Pyramid Mountain, watch for a variety of wildlife and enjoy class II and mild class III whitewater rapids. We provide a full drysuit for each rafter, 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.
*WARNING – Drysuits may contain latex
