As a Tour Director in Alaska, I always get asked what my favorite vendors are and Denali View is the best for rafting in Talkeetna. The staff is super friendly and the clot/rafting is fun rain or shine!

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Thinking of taking this trip - can anyone express how hard the hour hike from Chase down to the river was - in particular was it very steep either up or down? What condition was the track in? Also noted people saying 'short' train ride - how short? Any advice always appreciated. Thanks
