Alaska River Adventures possesses rare permits that allow us to operate in:

  • Kenai Wildlife National Refuge
  • Chugach National Forest
  • Alaska State Parks
  • Lake Clark National Park
  • Katmai National Park
  • Togiak National Wildlife Refuge

Alaska River Adventures has been operating guided fishing, scenic rafting, hiking, lodging, and even skiing for over 38 years!

We are one of the few outfits that float the entire Upper Kenai River from Kenai Lake to Skilak Lake, including the historic town of Cooper Landing, and the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge.

In that time, we’ve taken thousands of folks on amazing adventures. We offer day trips and all-inclusive lodging adventure packages custom fit to your needs.

Our main focus is our clients. We are committed to safety, conservation, stream ecology, and just being nice to all the critters that inhabit this beautiful place. All of our highly experienced guides are Cooper Landing locals and love to share this amazing place with you!
