RIVER TRIP DESCRIPTION: By floatplane we take off from Anchorage's Lake Hood, the world's largest floatplane base. Once airborne, we head 150 miles southwest toward the craggy, glaciered, and wing-pinched walls of Lake Clark Pass. The flight-seeing through Lake Clark Pass is breathtaking and filmmaking. Many guests shoot just about all their media cards, video footage, or film well before reaching our put-in at Upper-Landing at the far downstream end of Lake Clark on the Newhalen River.

The immense power and grand volume of the Newhalen River is born from the snow and ice fields of the Chigmit Mountains and the 4 million acre, Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. The awesome wonder of the Newhalen is distinctly different from most of Alaska's other glacial, high-volume, extremely swift, and turbulent whitewater rivers. This river is astoundingly turquoise clear with absolutely premier sport fishing. This clarity is due to the glacial-filtering effect of 75-mile long and very deep Lake Clark, one of Alaska's largest lakes. The Newhalen River, its tributary streams, and great lakes are prime Sockeye Salmon spawning grounds, contributing to over 16 percent of the world's commercial wild Red Salmon harvest. Sport fishing is outstanding for all species of Pacific Salmon, Arctic grayling, Char, Lakers, and Rainbow Trout. The Newhalen is also known for its abundant wildlife, including Brown Bear, Moose, and Caribou.

As a Big-Water, high-volume, and high-velocity whitewater river, the Class V+ Newhalen Gorge and Petrov Falls section demands the greatest respect.  It is very deep, very powerful, and very violent. There are extreme ledge drops, considerable sized standing waves, radical eddy lines with swirling whirlpools, and radical rock pillar formations. Throughout its course, there are eight especially dangerous and turbulent rapids. The Newhalen's dynamic flow ultimately empties into Lake Iliamna, Alaska's great lake. Our take-out is in the native village of Iliamna where many villagers still practice subsistence lifestyles, seasonally netting bounty of fresh wild fish and continually hunting  the areas game species.

Looking for untamed and terrific adventure? This river is a world-class - rivaling the best of Big-Water experiences run anywhere on the planet. The Newhalen Gorge whitewater trip defines AWESOME ADVENTURE! This BIG WATER run is for those seeking to a descent down one the most wild whitewater rivers in the Last Frontier with only limited time to explore where few have paddled before!
