Why take this tour?

Your 2-hour trip begins aboard the fifty-two-passenger "Talkeetna Queen" or one of her 15 or 20-passenger little sister boats, as it whisks you into the heart of the wilderness in comfort. These are the most technologically advanced jet boats in Alaska designed to safely navigate rivers that were previously inaccessible.

As you travel twenty miles of the river your naturalist will talk about the history and rivers in the area, as well as information about Denali. You will have opportunities to view nesting bald eagles and beaver activity.

Upon arriving at our Adventure site you will take a ¼-mile leisurely nature walk to a Dena'ina Indian Encampment, whom were the earliest native settlers in the area.

You will also visit an authentic trapper’s cabin with its original furnishings and view how trappers lived in "Bush" Alaska at the turn of the century. Your experienced guide will display furs from the local area and demonstrate trapping methods.

Naturalists will also acquaint you with the wildflowers and plants that grow in abundance along the river system and you will learn about the edible plants that were used by the Native Indians for cooking and medicines and some that are still eaten today.
