Spend a day exploring the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge on a thrilling Class II+ raft trip on the Kenai River. Nearly two million acres in size, the Refuge offers majestic wilderness scenery and multiple species of wildlife and birds. Your guide will steer your raft into Kenai Canyon and maneuver through the Class II+ rapids then pull ashore so you can enjoy a hearty picnic lunch.

The Upper Kenai River terminates at Skilak Lake—a pristine, glacier-carved lake in the heart of the Wildlife Refuge. From Skilak Lake take a 1½-mile hike up the beautiful Hidden Creek trail where you get breathtaking views of the lake and surrounding mountains.


Dress in warm layers. Guests with back, neck, heart or mobility problems are not allowed to participate. Raft can accommodate up to 8 guests. Time on the raft is approximately 5 hours.


An array of optional tours is available at the Kenai Princess Wilderness Lodge during the summer season. To add an activity to your stay, please visit the Tour Desk at Kenai Princess Wilderness Lodge.
