About Alaska Rivers Company

Our roots lie deep in the Kenai River. Alaska Rivers Company was one of the first oar powered outfitters to run on the upper Kenai River, dating back to 1974. For over 40 years we have built our operations to be based upon delivering superior personal service, hiring only the best guides and using the highest quality, highly maintained equipment to share the Kenai River with our guests.  We are proud to offer Alaska river rafting trips,  Alaska guided fishing and Alaska cabin rentals all on the beautiful Upper Kenai River and thru the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge thru our special use permits.

As one of the largest and locally owned rafting companies on the upper Kenai River, Alaska Rivers Company is uniquely positioned to provide you a spectacular vacation or quick getaway that you will treasure forever.
