Enjoy a cruise on the Chena and Tanana rivers aboard an authentic sternwheeler watch a bush pilot takeoff and land on the surface of the Chena River in a float plane. From late June through early August, these water teem with salmon. As the paddle wheel continues to churn the waters, witness the ''wedding of the rivers.'' When the clear waters of the Chena meet the glacier-fed Tanana, the result is clouds of silt that rise and fall over the river. Then, you'll make a stop at the home of a late four-time Iditarod champion, meet some winning sled dogs and witness a dog sled demonstration. Next, you'll disembark the sternwheeler for a guided tour through a replication of an Athabascan Indian village, where you will learn in depth about Native Alaskan village life.

Special Notes:

Guests need to make sure they do not reserve Land Excursions on the day of cruise tour arrival or departure that will conflict with their air schedules. Please allow at least two hours between the time your land excursion begins or ends and your flight.
