The Kennecott Mine Tour will take you through the buildings of Kennecott – a historic copper mining town from the early 20th century. Although the mines are no longer in operation, this ghost town was incredibly preserved. This tour will bring to light the fascinating details of the mining process, as well as life in this rustic Alaskan bush town. For more details on this tour, please click here.
Lastly, this package includes a rafting trip down the splashy Kennecott River. Enjoy an Alaskan-style deli lunch on the river bar, and keep your eyes peeled for animals and their tracks. After lunch, your guide will expertly maneuver your raft through the twisty narrows of Nizina Canyon, before pulling up on shore and awaiting your pick-up. Keep your cameras out for the ride home, as you enjoy a breath-taking bush plane flight home over the rivers and glaciers of the Kennicott Valley. Click here for more details on this trip.
