Denali Outdoor Center offers one of the most popular and exciting activities at Denali National Park -- rafting on the Nenana River. A whitewater rafting trip may seem intimidating at first, but even children quickly get over their nerves, sit back and enjoy the ride. The guides are very patient, friendly and help allay everyone’s concerns, so everyone can get into the spirit of a family outing without worry. There are several options here, including kayaking, self-paddling and the raft tours. These tours have what everyone might expect from an Alaska river ride. There’s a slower-paced scenic section of the trip and then a shoot through Alaska’s famous rapids. This is the white-knuckle part -- it’s fast, it’s exhilarating, and fun for most people. Denali Outdoor Center provides dry suits to keep riders warm and cozy so they can get up close and personal with the river without getting chilled to the bone! Denali Outdoor Center offers a way to see Denali that can’t be matched.
