Our day Kennicott River rafting trips are a fun filled Glacier Lake & Class II-III splashy Alaska river adventure. Our trip starts at the terminus of the Kennicott Glacier, where the receding ice has created a magnificent lake that has formed in the last twenty years. Paddle around icebergs, watch the dynamic nature of a large valley glacier and take the plunge (literally)! Our first in McCarthy drysuit outfitting means you can jump from an iceberg! After experiencing the grand beauty of a new landscape forming, we paddle to the mouth of the Kennicott river and raft the fun waves 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.
A Kennicott Lake & River Raft is the perfect trip for families, friends & work groups looking for something fun and exciting to do together in Wrangell St Elias National Park. Our Kennicott River Rafting day trips are great for all skill levels, the waves are fun and the lake is an experience that no one should miss!
If you only have time to do one activity while visiting Wrangell St. Elias National Park take the adventure everyone is talking about!
Intermediate. Our standard trips are outfitted with paddle rafts. Paddling is expected from all participants, but can be enjoyed by most skill and fitness less.
Oar Boat Upgrade: Your guide does all the work, you sit back and enjoy the ride.
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.
