From Chickaloon you must fly to get up river. Last Frontier Air Ventures (907-745-5701) has a helicopter in town and Dave King is who to contact for a short flight to what is known as 30-Mile Airstrip. You could use a fixed wing plane out of Wasilla to get to the strip but the planes don't carry as much as the chopper will. Grasshopper Air (907-373-6923) fixed wing from the Wasilla Airport will fly you to 30 Mile Airstrip. While this is a cheaper option, there is limited room for equipment. No hard-shell kayaks or large rafts.
