Tubing in Alaska

July 28, 2019

Where is the best place to go tubing in Alaska?

For anyone looking for a thrilling, adrenaline-inducing epic day on the water, Church Outdoor Center in Hope, Alaska is the place to go. You’ll be coasting on Alaska’s best whitewater class III-V rapids as you soar down Sixmile Creek. For those that are looking for a more relaxing float and Alaska tubing experience, they also offer float trips down the more gentle upper stretch of Sixmile as well as on the Resurrection River.

What else can I do besides tubing at Six Mile Creek?

Sixmile Creek is a short, roughly 12 mile waterway with some of the most exciting whitewater rafting in all of Alaska. While whitewater rafting and tubing in Alaska are the most popular pastimes on the waterway, the area is nearby to several camping attractions, fishing opportunities, and wildlife viewing.

Does Alaska have clean rivers?

Not only does Alaska have some of the cleanest rivers in the country, but they have more than three million lakes, over 12,000 rivers, thousands of streams and creeks and roughly 100,000 glaciers. Due to glacier run off, many of Alaska’s rivers, lakes, and streams are a beautiful blue and crystal clear.
