WHITEWATER RAFT­ING

Even though it’s an in­land ex­pe­ri­ence, adren­a­line junkies will get just as wet whitewater raft­ing in Alaska as they would any ocean sport. While the state boasts sev­eral world­class runs, Six Mile Creek is per­haps its most ac­ces­si­ble at less than 90 min­utes from An­chor­age.

This nat­u­ral thrill ride fea­tures un­par­al­leled scenery and class IV and V rapids, with tour op­tions for a two- and- a- half- hour/ two- canyon run or the more in­tense, fourhour/ three- canyon run. There’s no trans­fer to the launch site, so in­ter­ested par­tic­i­pants would have to rent a car out of An­chor­age. If you can, the ex­pe­ri­ence is well worth it. Op­tions in­clude tours with the Chugach Out­door Cen­ter and NOVA river raft­ing guides.
