A true treat for the adventure enthusiasts, take on class IV rapids of the Nenana River on the Canyon Wave Trip! You’ll power through “Coffee Grinder,” “Razorback,” and “Ice Worm” for a wet and wild Denali whitewater rafting adventure. Prepare to hold on tight and get your dry gear wet as you adventure down 11 miles of gorgeous, glorious river. With the oar raft option, your expert guide will take your team down the waves and turns while you hang on tight and enjoy the ride. For larger groups, you can opt for the much more hands-on option of a paddle raft. With this option, you’ll take on the Canyon Wave Trip for yourselves. As your expert guide at the back of the raft leads the charge, each rafter will have a part in your trip down the river. You’ll need to be on your toes & ready to follow instructions to safely guide your raft through the adventure ahead.
After convenient pickup from your local lodgings, you’ll start out the Canyon Wave Trip with a detailed safety briefing to prepare you for your trip. You’ll also take the time to gear up in your dry gear to keep you safe on the water. If you’ve, chosen the paddle raft option for this tour, pay extra attention to your guide’s instructions, so you’re ready to participate in your Denali whitewater rafting debut. You’ll then head out on a 2-hour river adventure, jam-packed with thrills & natural beauty. Your knowledgeable guide will keep you safe on the river, leading you expertly through the rapids, while also entertaining you with tales of the area, information about the river, and the occasional cheesy joke. Safe in your gore-tex dry suits, you’ll understand the thrill of waves crashing over the front of the boat, while remaining warm & dry! So bring your sense of adventure & prepare for memories of excitement that will last a lifetime on the Canyon Wave Trip.
