Thank you so much for the Copper river trip. It was fabulous. The guides were the best I have ever been with. I've done a lot of river trips and this was the best!

Copper River Rafting: Scenery With Scale

Rafting in Alaska on the Copper River, through one of the world’s most dramatic canyons, will render a lifetime of memories. This river trip floats 100 miles towards the sea, allowing for a classic passage from the heart of Alaska’s majestic mountains to the sparkling Prince William Sound. Simply put, there is no better way to experience the Alaskan wilderness than on Alaska’s Copper River.

We offer this trip in 6-, 7- and 8-day itineraries. The eight-day adventure allows time for more hiking alongside the river and most likely two nights in one location, where we can sit back and take the time to just soak in the magnificent landscape or enjoy a longer hike. This trip can be combined with other trips for our unforgettable Source to Sea, 15-day Alaska wilderness journey.

Each day of the Copper River rafting trip brings new topography and vistas, all spectacular and awe-inspiring. Glaciers crowd the river, trees pepper the hillsides, wildlife roams the shore, and side-canyon rivers spill crystal clear water into the glacially-silted Copper. The river grows and grows, eventually reaching flows up to ten times those regularly found in the Grand Canyon. Day after incredible day, we are able to enjoy the power of the Copper River and observe the wild nature of this region.

Trip Highlights
