We are excited to offer the Original Kennicott Glacier Lake & River Raft. Our day raft trips are a fun filled Glacier Lake & Class II-III splashy Alaska river adventure. We start our trips just below the terminus of the Kennicott Glacier, where the receding ice has created a magnificent lake that has formed in the last ten years. Paddle around icebergs and watch as pieces of the glacier calve into the lake right in front of the boat. After experiencing the grand beauty of a new landscape forming, we paddle to the mouth of the river and raft the fun waves of the Kennicott River as your guide expertly maneuvers around any dangers and into maximum fun! Prior to your trip, we outfit you with a dry suit and helmet for your safety, and a paddle for your enjoyment.
Our Alaska White Water Rafting day trips are great for all skill levels, the waves are fun and the lake is an experience that no one should miss! This is the perfect trip for groups looking for something fun and exciting to do together here in McCarthy, Alaska and those with limited time schedules or combine it with other fun day activities like, Glacier Hiking, Ice Climbing, Bicycling, or Hiking. If you only have time to do one activity while visiting us here in Wrangell St. Elias National Park & Preserve you cannot go wrong with this fun filled whitewater adventure!
Besides being jaw-dropping beautiful and inspiring, this is a fantastic trip for everyone- beginners to expert. Floating on a glacier lake and then down the river was breath-taking and so much fun with knowledgeable staff who made me feel safe and ready for adventure.
