One of the more unique ways to get up close and personal with nature in Alaska is to take a river raft excursion through the great Alaskan wilderness. There are many sights to see in Alaska, and it’s easier to float down a river than to do miles of hiking—that’s for sure.
If you’re not from Alaska, and you don’t happen to have a large, reliable raft or canoe with you, but you still want the experience of getting on the water and being able to tell all your friends back home that you went rafting in Alaska, 1st Alaska Outdoor School has a good deal for you.
During the warm Alaskan summer, 1st Alaska Outdoor School takes people out for guided five hour rafting tours. You can choose the 8am – 2pm timeslot or the 4pm – 10pm one.
Your Alaskan river rafting adventure starts at your Fairbanks place of accommodation—1st Alaska Outdoor School picks you up and takes you to the water. Once there, we provide the necessary gear for floating down the river. Bring your cameras, as there will be ample opportunities to get stunning shots of trees, mountains, and wildlife. The incredible beauty of Alaska is unforgettable.
Along the way, we’ll be on the lookout for some of Alaska’s most famous residents—is that a moose? Where is the wolf going? Believe it or not, that’s a beaver—dam! Anyone hear the bear somewhere out there? And look above your heads in the sky at that beautiful bald eagle soaring above. You don’t get to see these types of animals in the wild back at home—that’s for sure.
Best of all, a light meal is provided, rounding out the tour. Connect with nature in Alaska on a 1st Alaska Outdoor School river rafting trip—call us today at 907-590-5900 to book your adventure.
