The Best Alaska Day Adventures in Wrangell St Elias National Park!

Check out these awesome Alaska Adventures – Whitewater Rafting, Glacier Hiking, Kayaking and Paddle-board Tours

McCarthy River Tours & Outfitters is proud to offer an array of affordable, active one day Alaska adventures that are suitable for folks of all age and adventure levels. We pioneered the Kennicott Glacial Lake & River Raft, the first one day whitewater rafting trip in McCarthy that does not require an airplane pick up, and thus we were able to offer a raft trip that all can afford. We are also excited to offer  Kayak & Beginner & Intermediate level Stand-Up Paddle Board Tours of the Glacial Lake at the terminus of the Kennicott Glacier. These lakes have formed in just the last 20 years and are in constant change as we paddle around icebergs, explore hidden ice amphitheaters and watch for wildlife roaming the open meadows of the banks.
