Our Nova Alaska Guides location near Hope, Alaska is where we pioneered whitewater rafting on Six Mile Creek over 30 years ago. The river has three canyons which progressively get more challenging. The first two canyons are class IV and the third canyon has a couple of class V rapids. We offer two and three canyon trips. You have the option to add the third canyon after finishing the second canyon. A fun swim test is is required after instruction and the safety briefing. This helps demystify the river swimming and self rescue experience. This is one of the best whitewater trips in North America. With NOVA Alaska Guides, you can expect to experience the Alaska you always imagined.
