Paddle the Chena River from Pioneer Park to the Pump House

Stand-Up Paddleboard on the Chena River

See Fairbanks while you float the Chena River

This is our most popular float trip.  The leisurely two-hour paddle down the tranquil lower Chena River begins at the CanoeAlaska store at 1101 Peger Road.  Start from our Pioneer Park park location. We’ll set you up with your choice of canoe, kayak, or stand up paddle board (SUP) .   Float through Fairbanks towards the the historic Pump House Restaurant.  Keep your eyes open for waterfowl, beavers, muskrat, mink, and fox. These animals are sometimes spotted on this stretch of river. You can enjoy a cold beverage or meal on the deck at the PumpHouse before returning to Pioneer Park.  A shuttle leaves every hour on the half hour beginning at 1:30pm to bring you and your canoe/gear back to Pioneer Park.

The Pioneer Park to Pump House trip price is $40.00/person for a tandem canoe rental or $50/person for kayak or SUP.  This includes the canoe, kayak or SUP, paddle(s) and PFD (life vests) and a shuttle back to Pioneer Park.
