As a Tour Director in Alaska, I always get asked what my favorite vendors are and Denali View is the best for rafting in Talkeetna. The staff is super friendly and the clot/rafting is fun rain or shine!

You must make a reservation to raft, but it is so worth it! We were blessed to have a sunny cool 71 degree day. We went down the Nenana Gorge and had a blast! I could not stop smiling! Must do if you are in Alaska.

On August 15 we started our day with a rafting trip down the Big Su River. We were concerned about white water rafting, but this trip was anything but that. It was a quiet, relaxing float down a tranquil river with a knowledgeable local guide. One never knows what one will see on any given day, and we were told... More

We had booked this trip through a travel agent in Talkeetna but the communication was not great. Two days before this trip I was still not sure where we were meeting. I rang the raft company but they did not even reply by text. Anyway we manage to find them and we were taken to their office where we met... More

The train endedup stopping somewhere in the Denali backcountry where we pushed off and floated down a peaceful easy river with the kids. We had a mix of light rain... More

Although the weather was cloudy (no mountain views) we booked a peaceful river float before leaving Talkeetna on our way to Denali. Our guide, Reece, took us to beaver dams and eagle nests, explained trees, plants, climate, weather, summer sun, and the reality of families surviving winter darkness. He lives as he has always lived, in Talkeetna, and is intimately... More

This is our first time to try rafting, so it was new and exciting for me. The staffs were very nice and helpful. Our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic with his job. He showed us awesome beaver dams along the river, one eagle nest and wild cranberries and how to differentiate them from the poisonous plants that look very... More

We took the short train ride combined with the river float back to Talkeetna. It was a very pleasant trip even though it was grey and cloudy. We didn't have the good fortune of seeing any wildlife at all. Our float operator was Iris,and we thoroughly enjoyed her skills as well as the many stories and facts about the town... More
