Scenic Portage Rafting
Take in the views of vast mountain peaks, alpine glaciers and lush forests as we float down Portage River from Portage Lake. Your guide will interpret the glaciated landscape as you sit back and relax keeping your eyes peeled for wildlife. Portage Valley boasts a healthy population of black bear, moose, eagles and even an elusive wolf pack. Later in summer, salmon spawn in the clear creeks enriching the entire valley with nutrients. Enjoy a hot beverage and snack floating down the river with your small group. This is an accessible Alaskan adventure for all (not whitewater) and great for ages 2-102. Tour time is 3hrs from Girdwood meet. We love the morning time on the river, but you can choose a 9am, 11am, 1pm or 3pm departure. Ask us how to add guaranteed wildlife to your tour!
