Anchorage Whitewater

Anchorage county, Alaska whitewater outfitter

 
  The scenic beauty of Anchorage Borough and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water are reasons enough to come here and paddle. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Alaska is often more difficult than elsewhere, so keep in mind that many of the rivers here are not very forgiving. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. If you're coming from Anchorage it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location. No shortage
    of good hotels, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way this area has a large number of paddling
spots. Great exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great reasons to come. The beautiful Chugach Mountains scenery is an added bonus.

Briefly about the general area:
Have a great hiking adventure along the Crow Pass Trail. A tour to Chugach National Forest when you're here at Anchorage Whitewater is never a bad idea, and going for a hike along the Johnson Pass Trail will let you absorb the natural beauty of this
 
neighborhood. This river has it all. Skiing at Alyeska is one of those things you just have to do; the wonderful people of Girdwood like to hang out close by.
