Alaska Raft Adventures

Alaska white water rafting trips are the perfect focal point for launching an epic multi-sport exploration of this vast frontier wilderness. From scenic float planes to glacier trekking, from raft or by sea kayak, Copper Oar has done an outstanding job over the years of highlighting the best Alaska raft adventures, combining multiple sports.

What better place to begin exploring than in and around Wrangell - St. Elias National Park - the largest National Park in America?


Nizina River Raft and Hike

The Nizina River is a little-known but much loved gem of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, traveled by only a dozen or so people each season. Great hiking abounds along this river corridor, so we have combined 3 days of rafting with 2 days of exploration on foot for the ultimate wilderness adventure!

If you have the time to truly take in the grandeur of our country's largest national park, this is the way to do it. 15 days takes you from the headwaters of the Nizina River all the way to the mouth of the mighty Copper where it joins the ocean near Cordova.
