Float the Lower Chena River from Nordale Bridge to Pioneer Park

Canoe Alaska owner Josh Davis on the Nenana River

Enjoy a scenic paddle on the Chena River

This scenic section of the lower Chena River typically takes 4 to 6 hours to paddle.  Put-in at the Nordale Road bridge near North Pole.  The river meanders through spruce and birch boreal forest. Paddlers share the river with kingfishers, ducks, and beaver. The lucky paddler may glimpse a moose browsing along the shore. The river passes through Fort Wainwright and downtown Fairbanks as you approach the take-out at our Pioneer Park location near the Peger Road Bridge.

Price for this trip is $65/person for tandem canoe, or $100/person for kayak. The price includes boat, paddle, PFD (life vest) and a shuttle to the Nordale Road bridge put-in.
