Canyon Run Rafting Trip

Canyon Run Rafting Trip

The Canyon Run

The Canyon Run navigates Denali’s most exciting whitewater through the Nenana River Canyon. This challenging watercourse descends through 11 miles of spectacular scenery and geology. Over this descent, guests encounter 8 named rapids ranging from Class III to Class IV. Between the whitewater sections are mild stretches allowing guests to take in the steep landscapes and search for Dall sheep and moose. All guests are outfitted with whitewater specific dry-suits that allow everyone to experience the splashes while keeping your clothes dry underneath.

Raft Options

You can choose between two different types of rafts on the Canyon Run (NOTE: both types of rafts do the Canyon run together). 

The Oar Run | Guided & Exhilarating – We do the work

Your guide will do all the work navigating the rapids on this Alaska rafting trip. Guests simply hold on and enjoy the ride on our 18-foot, self-bailing inflatable rafts. This option allows almost anyone to experience our Alaska whitewater rafting thrills, even if they’ve never rafted before.

The Paddle Run | Guided & Thrilling – You help with the paddling

The Paddle Run gets everyone involved with the navigation and propulsion of the raft on their Alaska rafting trip. Participants grab a paddle and receive detailed instruction on how to work on the crew to successfully navigate the rapids. Just remember that it takes a lot of work to paddle and really should be the excursion of choice for those with prior whitewater paddling experience or plenty of muscle and lungs to do the job. Exciting Alaska whitewater rafting involves the use of paddles to navigate same class III & IV rapids as in the Canyon Run. A fun challenge!
