This Gorgeous River In Alaska Is Picture Perfect For A Relaxing Canoe Trip

Spending a lazy afternoon floating down a peaceful river in a canoe is an ancient Alaskan pastime. Nowhere is more perfect for a canoe trip than the Chena River. Take Chena Hot Springs Road to the north from Fairbanks to the second river bridge and pull out at the first river bridge for a 3 mile float that’s a slice of heaven. The wild Alaskan forest bumps right into the shore, unless a clear sandbar provides a place to lounge in the sun. You’ll love your relaxing canoe trip down the Chena River. Don’t forget your bug spray, sunscreen and a lifejacket!
