The Nizina River Rafting and Hiking expedition is a combination of a four day hike followed by a four day rafting adventure down the Nizina river! No need to choose between rafting and trekking – this one has it all.
We start off in the high country above the Chitistone River and then make our way down to the Nizina River. Where we meet up with our raft guides who have been preparing our gear for the second half of our Alaska adventure. Once we get to the Nizina River, we empty our gear out of the packs and load up the dry bags. Our legs get a break as we float down the Nizina to the Copper River to our take-out at Chitina.
After four days of well prepared “backpacking” food, prepare to feast on the delectable culinary masterpieces that our river chefs are renowned for. Salmon, Pork Chops, and mouth watering Dutch Oven desserts are just a sampling of the delicious food we prepare on the river. We also offer many elegant Vegetarian/Vegan and Gluten Free menu options, just tell us and we’ll build it in!
Check out our Upper Nizina River rafting trip for more details about this great adventure. There is currently just one trip scheduled for August but if you have a group of three or more we can schedule a custom, private trip for you.
We have teamed up with Trek Alaska to bring you this special trip. We are hoping to offer even more rafting/trekking combo trips in the future.
