Chugach Adventure Guides

Anchorage county, Alaska whitewater outfitter

 
  If you're coming from Anchorage it's not a long drive at all to the starting location. The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state are often tougher than in other states, so if you're not from around here don't forget that rivers here are less forgiving. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, this is an area with plenty of rivers for that. The campgrounds here at Chugach Adventure Guides
    are pretty good. There are some good hotels near the river, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. The wild scenery of the Chugach Mountains is great. The scenic beauty of Alaska and the
sparkling of the sunlight on the water will make you feel great. Great exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great attractions for lots of people.

Briefly about the general area:
Go for a hike on the Johnson Pass Trail, and Chugach National Forest is both great and beautiful. You just can't envision the amount of outdoors fun things the Chugach Mountains has to offer. Going for a hike on the Crow Pass Trail is
 
always a magnificent adventure, and there's no such thing as a bad day of skiing at nearby Alyeska. At this river you will always have a good time.
