About Talkeetna River Guides - Day Trips
Whether you are an experienced adventurer or a family traveling with children, TRG‘s scenic float trips fit a broad spectrum of tastes. Few places in the world rival the scenic beauty of Mt. McKinley (known locally as Denali, or “the Great One” in the Tanana Athabascan dialect) and the glacier-fed river valleys of the southern slopes of the Alaska Range. Located just 120 road miles northeast of Anchorage, the quaint, historic town of Talkeetna sits near the confluence of three mighty rivers, the Susitna, the Chulitna, and the Talkeetna. TRG operates out of a yurt office on Main Street. Other activities in the area include hiking in Denali State Park, flightseeing amidst the spectacular peaks of the Alaska Range, and remote wilderness exploration in the unspoiled reaches of Denali National Park and the nearby Talkeetna Mountains — just to name a few. We offer 2-hour Talkeetna River and 4-hour Chulitna River Trips. As well as custom and overnight trips, just call or email us for more information. We provide rain gear and boots so you can enjoy your trip rain or shine.

Had a great time. Staff was professorial, courteous and friendly. A relaxing day. Had some minor issues (our fault) , but Ashley resolved them anyhow. Would highly recommend Talkeetna River Float Trip. Note : I'm 72 years old. Been around for along time and in many countries. Many cruises and land tours. Seen the good and the bad ( Vietnam Vet.). Not everything will be perfect. So be open minded,and most of all "HAVE FUN" ! Quote: "The road to happiness isn't paved with hate ".

We had a great time on a relaxing down the river. It was a beautiful day, and we enjoyed the natural setting and saw both moose and bear tracks in the sand. Our guide Scott was very friendly and nice to chat with.

Had a great experience taking the river raft. They were extremely careful given COVID - I had no worries and they were incredibly respectful the whole time. That said, the rafting was a great experience - we really enjoyed it. Lots of good sights, lots of good insights from the guide - who was great. The outfit was exceptional and would highly recommend it.

We had a great few hours riding the river as a family of 4 with young kids. They were so nice and knowledgeable of the area, and we could spot some birds, test some berries and learn about the ecosystem while having fun. Highly recommended if you are looking for a smooth ride with young kids and a bit of history about the area, this is the place to go. Thank you Talkeetna River Guides for a great sunny afternoon in Talkeetna!!

Fantastic trip. They were very prepared for the current pandemic situation and had taken great care to make sure the trip was safe and enjoyable. Highly recommended! Even as a local Alaskan, i really enjoyed the scenic float and we saw a bald eagle eating a salmon! A highlight of our time in Talkeetna
