Below are a few comments from our visitors; we promise to strive on each and every trip to provide the very best outdoor experiences for all of our future adventure travelers.

Guest Comments

“Hi DOC,
I wanted to send thanks out to Jeff for the amazing time I had rafting while in Denali. His confident and fun nature allowed everyone in the raft to have a great time, lose the nervousness, play a little and enjoy the trip. This was my first rafting adventure, seeing Alaska from the river spoiled me for the rest of my trip. As Jeff suggested, I did everything I could to NOT see Alaska from behind a tour bus window and succeeded! It was a vacation of a lifetime and more incredible than I could say.

Hoping to be back next summer and spending all of my time in/near Denali. Thanks again Jeff and everyone at DOC…You ROCK!!!!!”.

“We did a trip down the river and our guide was Flood – it was totally awesome. It was the first time I had ever done white water and it was a truly amazing experience! Our guide was outstanding he had us laughing and joking through the whole trip. He has already been recommended to two other groups that plan on doing this trip. I would definitely recommend your company. Thank you for making this such a wonderful experience.”

“Wow. It’s been 3 summers since my wife and I stayed at the cabins and did a rafting tour while we were visiting Denali. Seems like yesterday and we want to come back. Our experience with Denali Outdoor was quite enjoyable.”

“While visiting Denali, my brother, niece, husband and I spent one evening rafting with DOC. The few hours we spent on the river were both beautiful and thrilling. While rafting novices, we felt entirely comfortable with the knowledge and expertise of our guide, Glenn. He was very personable and encouraged each of us to thoroughly enjoy ourselves. We had an experience that won’t soon be forgotten. In fact, when reflecting on our “Alaska Experience,” three of the four of us ranked the rafting trip as one of the best times of the trip. Thanks for a wonderful rafting experience!”

“Most importantly, Denali Outdoor Center has a reputation as being one of the safest rafting companies in Denali. Out of all of the vendors we work with, Denali Outdoor Center is a favorite among our tour directors. Sometimes unusual customer requests come up and DOC always exceeds our guests’ customer satisfaction.”

“My wife and I want to let you know how much we appreciate the kindness and support we received while staying at the Denali Outdoor Center. We enjoyed the cabin and all the services, the kitchen and bath facilities were great. We also took the river float trip and my wife had a great time since it was her first white water adventure. It will be our pleasure to tell all our friends about the great facilities and staff you have at the Denali Outdoor Center.”

“Several months ago I reserved an oar rafting trip for three people for yesterday afternoon. It was our last day in Alaska, topping off a six-night camping stay in Denali NP. Al was our guide for the 2pm tour. He was excellent. Al was knowledgeable and friendly and it was a treat to talk with him. I especially enjoyed hearing about his dogsled interests. And the scenery on the trip was breathtaking. I just wanted to say “thanks” for the great time on the river. I know I will do another rafting trip during another trip to Denali.”
