We did the Canyon Run 2 hour (11 miles) Class 3-4. We were fortunate enough for it to just be the 4 of us on the raft. You have some excitement but they steer pretty clear of the rough stuff so it's really low key trip. This run is for scenery not big action. Guide was helpful and knowledgeable. Dry... More

The Nenena River is whether unforgetable white water rafting can be had when staying at the Denali Princess wilderness Lodge. Class 3 and 4 rapids present excitement to white water rafters. When we did a white water raft tour, we travelled clown to 12 miles downstream and were on the water for nearly two hours. Rafters were given proper white... More

What a great way to begin our Alaskan holiday. We had a blast! There were four adults in our group, with a total of seven, including our guide in the raft. The bus arrived right on time at our cabin to pick us up. The driver and guides were very friendly, which made for an entertaining commute. Once we arrived,... More

This rafting adventure was just great! I was nervous because of my fear of water and with a 14 and 12 year old. But the staff made this super safe and super exciting at the same time. They were all really funny and kept us laughing through out ! Well organized - took about almost 50 of us in 4... More

To start off, my party of 3 would like to thank the young lady at Denali Raft Adventures for helping us out and giving 110% to ensure our 4 day stay in Denali was the best experience it could be. Our day didn't exactly start off as planned as we had camped at the National Park and made reservations for... More

My friends and I (first-timers to white water rafting) really enjoyed ourselves on this tour. Our guide Peacock was very informative and taught us how to maneuver the raft across the rapids. The tour initially started off slowly with class I and II rapids, but as we grew more confident with our paddles, Peacock took us over some class III... More

Denali Raft Adventures was exciting. Although we had planned to take the easier raft trip, they encouraged us to try the class III and IV rapids. Peacock (yes, that was our guide’s name) was excellent in helping us practice and then giving step by step instructions for riding the rapids. The rapids were impressive but more of a challenge than... More

I was initially concerned due to water temperature, but was quickly reassured when I was fitted with a "dry suit" that kept me warm and comfortable despite the chilly waters (36F). My guide, Peacock was great-assisting with all aspects of the trip and was very knowledgeable about the area and the river. A real gem of a river guide! The... More

We had a wonderful two hour rafting trip. Peacock was our guide, he was so enjoyable! There were four in our group, due to obligations we were only able to do the two hour raft trip. It was GREAT! I wish that we could have stayed on for the additional two hours. This was my first rafting trip and it... More
