Alaska Rafting & Adventures in Wrangell St. Elias National Park & Preserve

Wilderness Few People Have Experienced!

McCarthy River Tours & Outfitters is proud to offer a wide variety of Alaska Rafting & Adventure Trips in Wrangell St. Elias National Park & Preserve.  Whether you are interested in a scenic float, high excitement whitewater, or perhaps a little bit of both, we will tailor your trip to your needs and interests. Many of our wilderness trips originate with a Bush Plane fly shuttle to our put-in, in the heart of truly remote Alaska Wilderness. We pack each trip with the finest food, sourcing many meats & vegetables locally, our guests often remark that they eat better on the river than they do at home!
The rivers of Wrangell St Elias National Park are some of the most pristine, least traveled in North America, the diversity of rivers offer trips for people of all skill levels. Wild and scenic beauty found on a Copper River or Chitina Rivers to Riches Expedition, class II & III whitewater on the Kennicott, Upper Chitina, and Nizina Rivers, and the heart pumping big water of the Tana, each expedition provides a level of excitement and beauty that only Alaska can offer.
