Nova Riverrunners

Matanuska Susitna county, Alaska whitewater outfitter

 
  Whitewater outfitter

The scenic beauty of Alaska and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water are reasons enough to come here and paddle. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Alaska tend to be more challenging than the national average, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that rivers here are less forgiving. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. A good workout and just being out on the
    river for a while are sure to keep you coming back for more. The starting location is a reasonable drive from Anchorage. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an area with plenty of places for that. The nearby
hotels are a bit away from the river, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. The river winds through the Talkeetna Mountains and you get great scenery.

Briefly about the general area:
Take a hike on the Chickaloon Trail, and you can have a good hiking adventure along the Chickaloon River Trail. All the outdoors enjoyable stuff in the Talkeetna Mountains will keep you coming back time and again.
