We're sorry, this tour or activity is not available for selected date.
Start the day early with transport from your Fairbanks or North Pole hotel to the nearby Chena Lake Recreation Area, where you’ll begin your small-group or private canoeing adventure. After a detailed safety briefing, put on your life jacket and set off in your canoe along the gorgeous Chena River, lined with tall stands of spruce and birch trees. This tour is perfect for beginners but not for small children.
The age limit for this tour is 9 years, due to the possibility of tipping over.
As you paddle, your enthusiastic guide will point out wildlife along the banks of the river. Catch sight of kingfishers, hawks and bald eagles flying above the marshes. See foxes, beavers, moose and maybe even black or grizzly bears!
The pace is leisurely, and you will stop at sandbanks along the way to replenish with snacks and coffee, and take your fill of photos.
Your fun, refreshing day of canoeing ends at Nordale Bridge. Relax and reminisce about your journey into the wild as you’re driven back to your hotel.
