"If you really want to have a true Alaskan experience, a Copper River trip is a must. From the first day in McCarthy to eating fish tacos in Cordova it was spectacular." ~Marty, Oregon

Get Ready for Whitewater Rafting & Glacier Hiking in Historic McCarthy and Alaska’s Largest National Park

Wrangell St. Elias National Park & Preserve surrounds historic McCarthy, Alaska. This national park, the largest in the entire USA, 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.



Drysuits for All River Rafting & Paddling Adventures!

We are proud to be the first company in the Wrangell Mountains to offer both dry-suits and helmets to all of our customers. Your safety is our number one priority at McCarthy River Tours & Outfitters.  Alaska’s glacier-fed rivers are mighty cold; drysuits mean you stay comfortable, dry and yes – you can even choose to jump into these amazing rivers! (Watch the video!)  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!
