If you're searching for an adrenaline-filled adventure in the wilds of Alaska, then our Canyon Wave Whitewater Rafting is the perfect choice. This thrilling Denali whitewater rafting tour will take you deep into Class IV rapids on the Nenana River, testing your skill, strength, and team spirit! Prepare to be amazed by the breathtaking beauty of the Alaskan landscape as you navigate the rapids and experience the ultimate rush of excitement.

The Canyon Wave Whitewater Rafting will take you on an 11-mile journey down a pristine river, offering you the opportunity to challenge yourself while admiring the incomparable scenery. Choose between two thrilling activities: oar rafting or paddle rafting. With the oar raft, your experienced and skilled guide will take you through the waters as you hang on tight and enjoy the thrill of the ride and the scenery.
