Denali Whitewater Rafting And Scenic Rafting Adventures

Paddling Rafting Trips

Paddle rafting offers river runners more participatory adventure and is our most popular river trip for Alaska travelers seeking hands-on action. While some Alaska raft adventure companies will paddle around the big whitewater, with the protection of our "drysuits" and the experience of our guides, Denali Outdoor Center will run more Alaska whitewater and offer a more exciting ride! Our 15ft. Star Inflatables are smaller rafts designed specifically for paddling. With less people on board, the Alaska whitewater action is bigger and more fun! Experience the beautiful Nenana River Gorge in Denali National Park, Alaska with all it has to offer. (Minimum age required is 14 years old)

Oar Rafting Trips

Just sit, hold on and enjoy the Alaska raft ride! This Alaska raft adventure is a perfect introduction to whitewater rafting from "mild to wild" and is suitable for all ages and abilities. Your Alaska river guide will be seated in the middle of the raft operating the oars to navigate the whitewater. We are a family friendly excursion and invite all Alaska travelers ages 5 and older. Children must be big enough to fit into our smallest "smiley face" drysuit in order to raft in Alaska.
