Float through the stunning Chulitna Canyon, which ends 19 miles downstream in the historic town of Talkeetna. Be sure to have your camera ready to catch a glimpse of Denali’s snow-covered peaks and the entire Alaska Range (weather permitting). Enjoy the sweeping, postcard-perfect views of the mountains, the lush and remote portion of the Chulitna River. Discover a treasure trove of untouched wilderness with eagles’ nests and salmon streams that share the river with bears, swans and moose.
