Activities – Your Next Adventure Awaits

When you have cabin fever, step outside and into the excitement. Enjoy king and red salmon fishing, airplane sightseeing and jet boating, berry picking and hiking, or hunting and wildlife viewing. Or perhaps you’d prefer to visit the historic communities of McCarthy and Kennicott, site of the richest copper strike in history. We can help you arrange a variety of activities throughout the Copper Valley region, including:

River Rafting                                          
Ride the rapids or cruise calmer waters with all levels of wilderness rafting. Choose from six major recreation rivers in the area, including the Gulkana, Klutina, Tazlina, Tonsina, Delta and Copper rivers.

Hiking Trips
There’s something for everyone with hiking at nearby Thompson Pass, the Denali Highway, Kennicott, and Matanuska and Worthington Glaciers.

Fish for world famous Copper River red Salmon, King salmon, rainbow trout or grayling at streams along the road, or fly into a wilderness lake.
