This 4-hour tour takes place on the world-famous Copper River. Take a beautiful raft float alongside America’s largest national park, the Wrangell St. Elias National Park. The Copper River Scenic float is perfect for those who want to photograph the mountainous scenery or wildlife that frequent the shores, or just have a peaceful ride down the river. You will see how the Copper River is still used for subsistence fishing today as we float by fishwheels and dipnets along the way. Your professional guide will share stories, history, and give you some insight toward the geological past that shaped the vast Copper River Basin. Your tour will end right at a fish wheel camp so you can get an up-close view of the vital piece of equipment used by the locals for generations. Snacks and
water will be provided.


Maximum weight is 300 lbs. Dress in warm layers. Rain gear, boots and life jackets will be provided. Pregnant guests or guests with heart or mobility problems are not allowed to participate. Wildlife sightings are likely but not guaranteed.
