Wrangell St. Elias National Park & Preserve contains some of the highest concentration of glaciers and 16,000 foot mountains in the world! With only two roads offering access into this wild land the best way to see most of the surrounding beauty is by floating the river waterways. Fly in to remote glacier lakes and float through icebergs to the river mouth, or land on a cobble bar along the rivers edge, nothing compares with the thrill of rafting these Alaska Rivers without seeing another soul for days on end.
Your safety is our number one priority at McCarthy River Tours & Outfitters, we are proud to be the first company in the Wrangell Mountains to offer both dry-suits and helmets to all of our customers.

All of our guides are culinary experts in wilderness cooking, what could be more enjoyable than settling that fresh salmon dinner with some perfectly baked brownies from a Dutch Oven?
Alaska, which means “The Great Land” in the language of the Aleut, is America’s last great frontier! Rugged mountains, hanging glaciers, and abundant wildlife are all on display in this rugged remote land. A land mass that is over 1/5th the size of the continental United States with a year round population still well under one million people, the wildness of this “Great Land” is truly on a scale unparalleled anywhere else!
We look forward to seeing you here in the Wrangell Mountains! Contact us here to learn more about our Alaska river adventures!
