Float past the Mile High Cliffs on the right and the beautiful mouth of the Chitistone River on the left. The historic skeleton of the Nizina River Bridge that once connected the towns of McCarthy and May Creek looms ahead on the second day of floating, reminding us of the copper and gold booms of the past century. Before flooding and the rivers ever shifting coarse washed the bridge out for good, this bridge intimately connected the small towns of the Wrangell’s. Land connection severed, only by boat can you now continue downstream through the windy walls of the Nizina River Canyon and out onto the Chitina River.

We begin our trip flying out of our local airstrip in McCarthy, Alaska with a bush plane drop off next to Nizina Lake at the terminus of the mighty Nizina Glacier. We spend our first day hiking and exploring the beauty surrounding the lake and glacier as we prepare to begin our trip downstream. After enjoying a hardy breakfast, we begin our river journey negotiating the icebergs in the lake as we wind our way to the mouth of the Nizina River. Unrivaled beauty surrounds us as the river tumbles towards Chitina. Class II and III whitewater make this a ‘must do’ Alaska river adventure.

Private Root Glacier Hike

Private Root Glacier Hike - McCarthy, Alaska

Duration: Flexible
Location: McCarthy, Alaska

From USD
$95.00

Join us for an exciting half day Glacier Hike adventure of the Root Glacier in Kennecott, Alaska.  Explore the Blue Pools, Moulin’s, Crevasses and rolling Ice of the Root Glacier accompanied by one of our world class guides.  Well studied in glaciology and geology, your guide will bring you on an adventure that is much more than just hiking.  The cascading alpine and glacial moonscape provide for some of the best, easily immersive flora, fauna and vistas of the Kennicott Valley.

Your glacial journey begins at our shop in “downtown” McCarthy, our guides will outfit you with a pair of crampons and a pre-trip orientation before we shuttle up to Kennecott.  From the bus depot at the beginning of the Kennecott Historic Town Site, take a trek through the historic copper town while your guide explains the buildings and history of the Worlds purest copper.  The 14 story Concentration Mill and the towering stacks of the old Powerhouse dominate the townscape, but there are many smaller buildings as well, your guides “insider” knowledge will help to illuminate the stories that once unfolded here.  Well preserved as a National Heritage site, Kennecott is truly a unique place to begin your hike to the Root Glacier.

After the brief walk through town, our trail begins out to the glacier, trekking along the well-marked trail, check out wild-flowers alongside, maybe taste a few of the Alaska Berries along the way.  The roughly 2 mile hike from bus depot to white ice provides for great photo ops and stops along the way to learn more about the glacier in front of us and the alpine mountains and the creatures that roam there.

Once at the glacier, pause briefly while we put on our crampons and your guide gives some key advice on walking in crampons safely and effectively.  We’ll admit, walking on ice with the sharp spikes of the crampons on the bottom can be a little awkward at first, but after a little bit of “break in “ time and the sage knowledge the professional, you’ll find yourself immersed in an unbelievable, unique landscape.  You’ll spend a few hours circling Moulin’s, traversing fields of ice, basking in the beauty of blue pools and truly getting a sense of the vastness and wildness of the Alaskan landscape.

From start to finish, the half day glacier hike can take between 4 & 6 hours and approximately 5-6 miles depending on your crew, motivation levels, and comfort.  What makes our trips different?  All of our full price trips are private tours(groups of 2 or more), that means we travel at your pace, we explore at your pace, and best of all, you get a private guide that you can ask far more questions and have them customize your trip to your needs.

River to Riches 3 Day Raft expedition

River to Riches 3 Day Raft expedition - McCarthy, Alaska

Duration: 3 days
Location: McCarthy, Alaska

From USD
$1182.00

The Chitina River, river to riches for many early Alaska prospectors, is a massive river drainage originating from the glacier of the same name off the flanks of mighty Mount Logan in Canada, effectively doubling the size of the Copper River once the two streams flow together. Chitina means “copper river” in the indigenous Ahtna language, originally unable to decide which drainage to name “Copper” due the large size of both rivers it was compromised to name both rivers “Copper” just in different languages ...

Chitina means “copper river” in the indigenous Ahtna language, originally unable to decide which drainage to name “Copper” due the large size of both rivers it was compromised to name both rivers “Copper” just in different languages. Regardless of which language you look at, Chitina river rafting is a truly classic Alaska wilderness adventure!

Our raft trip begins in McCarthy, just down stream from the terminus of the Kennicott Glacier. After exiting the lake at the toe of the glacier the river picks up speed as it moves along its unstoppable coarse towards the ocean. The fast current of the Kennicott flowing over the shallow gravel shoals of glacier remnants is fun and splashy, providing some high excitement as we negotiate its six mile course towards the Nizina River.

After we merge with the Nizina, the river becomes broader with large rolling waves for the next few miles, spotting eagles and other Alaska wildlife are not uncommon as we take a moment to enjoy the beautiful views around us. To make sure we do not get to comfortable the river offers ever changing channels and new rapids as we wind through the gravel bars and broad valley the river has carved before entering the Nizina River Canyon. Seemingly, in just one bend of the river’s coarse we enter the constricted walls of the canyon, moving the river into one main channel and creating tight turns that form both fun rapids and confounding river boils, created by so much water being compressed into so small a space. The towering limestone cliffs of the Nizina Canyon offer great viewing of the areas geology.

Once through the canyon, which ends almost as abruptly as it began, we enter the wider scenic valley of the Chitina river, where stern wheel paddle boats once brought ore rich with copper downstream to Cordova for shipment to market. Along the way we will see historical remnants of prospectors and explorers as they made their way into the Alaska wilderness. As we continue down river, the Wrangell Mountains to the North and the Chugach Mountains to the South, we leave the ecological and geological zones of the Wrangell’s and enter into those of the Chugach Mountains, rock hounds delight at the broad range of cobble to be found along these rivers!
