With narrow canyons and stunning scenery, legendary Sixmile Creek serves up one of the most iconic stretches of whitewater in North America. And rafting it with the experienced, passionate guides at Flow AK makes for an exhilarating backcountry excursion. Whether you choose to tackle the rapids or enjoy a leisure float, you can do it less than two hours outside Anchorage in the town of Hope.
Rafting Options: Sixmile Creek & Upper Sixmile Creek
Sixmile Creek: Whitewater Rafting
The whitewater trips are true adventures! For 3-4 hours, anyone fit and at 12 years old can feel the rush of paddling through rapids in three canyons, steering around rocks and hanging on as the surging waters push the raft along.
Each trip includes top-flight equipment (helmet, dry suit, shoes, and life jacket) and all the required instruction—no experience necessary! You’ll start by getting a feel for being in the water and getting back into the raft; of course your guides will always be on hand to ensure everyone’s safety. Then you’ll be off, shooting through the canyons and navigating rapids ranging from Class III to Class V. The trip ends at Hope Road, a little town that used to be a mining epicenter in the 1800s.
Upper Sixmile Creek: Sit Back and Relax
Want something more mellow? Enjoy a relaxing float trip through this scenic area. Anyone 6 years and older can kick back and look for the bears, moose, and eagles that call the forest home. Or arrange for a customized trip, with up to 5 people in a raft.
