Sternwheeler Riverboat Tour

Board an authentic sternwheeler riverboat for a cruise on the Chena and Tanana Rivers. This three hour tour will take you into the heart of Alaska and the heart of a family who has made the rivers of Alaska a way of life for four generations.

You will see a bush plane taking off from a grass runway, witness the "wedding of the rivers", and gain an insight into the ancient Athabascan native culture. Native Alaskan guides who have worked and lived in Alaska will take you on a personal tour of the Chena Indian Village.
