This was one of the highlights of my trip. The staff is incredibly fun and knowledgeable, sharing area history along the way and pointing out wildlife (we saw two owls nesting in the canyon). I highly recommend the river rafting!

While in Alaska last week, a group of friends decided to do a white river rafting experience. Our guide, Flood, was very good and had us laughing in stitches the whole way. We "rode the bull" and had a great time. Worth every penny.

It didn't matter that it was 50 degrees in September. We were given wetsuits that kept us warm and a guide who kept us safe, informed and entertained!

Thanks to guide Matt, my white water rafting session was fabulous. Matt is a wild, informative and hilarious young American who took us through some fun Rapids rating around level 3and 4. Great scenery and exhilaration.

We have been on several white water rafting trips. This ride was almost non-stop action from the beginning to almost the very end. Class IV rapids so you are not going to flip over, but you do get splashed. Ask for Chad. He was great....More

Took the Canyon Run oar trip. Lots of fun. Recommendation - ride in front of the guide. Was a little bit more of a float than I expected but it was good for a first time raft trip. Guide was great and entertaining.

Is the scenic rafting inside Denali Park? THanks

Response from Kellie B | Reviewed this property |
No. It was more around the town. To get to the Park, you need to take a bus for a few hours. Both trips well worth it!!

Does each cabin come with your own bathroom inside of the cabin? Also, can a rental car make it to the cabins?

Hi We stayed in the main building as opposed to a cabin. Had our own bathroom within our room. Parking plentiful and right by the accommodation - good access along a short gravel drive off the road.
