Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Alaska is often tougher than elsewhere, so you'd better keep in mind that the rivers in this state are less manageable. The nature scenery of Alaska and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream beats anything. The starting point is not too far
    from Anchorage. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way there are lots of good places for that around here. Getting a good workout and a chance to
spend some time outdoors will have you coming back for more. If you'll be staying in a hotel you're in luck, lodging is available very near the river, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car.
