ALASKA
COPPER RIVER - 7 DAYS
JULY 8 – 14, 2019


If you would like to see Alaska the way few others have, join us for a 100-mile paddle/float through the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Chugach Mountains to the Copper River Delta.

Gorgeous waterfalls tumble down snow-capped peaks, mountain/valley, hanging and cirque glaciers punctuate the landscape, and evidence of abundant wildlife is everywhere. This true Alaska wilderness adventure is bookended by evenings in the premier town of Valdez and the remote fishing village of Cordova. We would love to share this genuine Alaska experience with you!

Highlights: glaciers, waterfalls, bald eagle and wildlife sightings, fascinating human history, and lunch at an iceberg-filled lake.

Dates: July 8 – 14, 2019. Trip begins in Valdez, AK and concludes in Cordova AK
