Prepare for a unique expedition today, as you’ll be rafting to your next adventure location on the turquoise waters of the beautiful Kenai River. Your destination is the Kenai Backcountry Lodge, where you will spend the next two nights.

Truly an unspoiled journey into the wilderness, the route takes you to an area of Alaska that few visitors will see. The first part of the day is a float trip, as you keep an eye out for wildlife. After enjoying a picnic lunch in the great outdoors, head into some exhilarating Class II+ waters through the Kenai Canyon. Before arriving at the lodge, you’ll cruise along the shores of a pristine glacier-carved lake. Indulge in a scrumptious dinner at the lodge tonight and then snuggle into your accommodations, complete with down comforters and propane heat and light.
