Wrangell St. Elias National Park & Preserve contains some of the highest concentration of glaciers and 16,000 foot mountains in the world! Only two roads offer access into this wild land so 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. We seek out the best guides, with experience boating whitewater rivers around the world, all trained in wilderness medicine, and excited to be here in Alaska, you can be assured that you are in good hands!
Along with safety, we also offer the highest quality meals for your enjoyment and comfort. We do our best to source our food supplies and find Alaska produced meats and vegetables to compliment the surrounding beauty of the land. All of our guides are culinary experts in wilderness cooking and take pride in the river side feast. What could be more enjoyable than settling that fresh salmon dinner with some perfectly baked Dutch Oven brownies?
Alaska, or “The Great Land,” is America’s last great frontier! Rugged mountains, hanging glaciers, and abundant wildlife are all on display in this rugged, remote land. Alaska is over 1/5th the size of the continental United States with a year round population well under one million people, the wildness here is on a scale unparalleled anywhere else!
