17 years of experience in the outdoors we specialize in our guest's safety, comfort and satisfaction. We operate out of Chickaloon, Alaska only an hour and a half by car from Anchorage, through the scenic Matanuska River Valley. We take you rafting on the Matanuska River and glacier hiking, mountain biking and backpacking in the Talkeetna Mountains, Kenai Peninsula, Chugach State Park or Denali State Park if you are on a limited time schedule. The Talkeetna Mountains offer a wonderful wilderness backcountry experience without an expensive bush flight. Whether you are in the Anchorage area or Matanuska Susitna Valley for a day trip or coming to Alaska for a multi-day wilderness expedition the wealth of tundra, rivers, mountains and glaciers, lakes, islands and coastline allow us to share special outdoor experiences with people from around the world.
