Come experience the Land of the Midnight Sun while taking a nighttime float down the Knik River!
Come experience the Land of the Midnight Sun by floating a lazy glacier-fed river at night!
The headwaters of the Knik River is the largest glacier in South Central Alaska, also bearing the name of Knik.
This glacier formed valley is full of wildlife, such as moose, bear, eagles, and salmon just to name a few. Though we can not guarantee you will see wildlife on your tour, we can guarantee that you will get to experience being out in nature.
This tour starts and ends at the Glenn Highway Knik River Bridge by Reflection’s Lake. Once everyone is checked in we will transfer everyone to Old Knik Bridge. Once at the bridge, we will board our paddle craft and begin our journey down the Knik River. The Knik River is glacier fed so no jumping in unless you want a very cold bath. The river has a strong but slow moving current that takes us back to the Glenn Highway Bridge. Depending on tides and wind you may need to paddle at the very end of the Knik River but for the most part this is a very relaxing float. As we float, look for animals, admire the grandeur of the Chugach mountains and observe the many braids of the river.
