Venture to Alaska’s gold rush rappelling next to waterfalls, scrambling up mossy slot canyons and canyoneering into Crow Creek Gold Mines hydraulic mining past.

Canyoneering is your action packed rappelling and climbing experience taking you over cliffs to hidden waterfalls through narrow slot canyons in lush Alaska rainforest.

Explore Girdwood’s Glacier Valley as you transport back in time from Hotel Alyeska to the Historic Crow Creek Gold Mine canyons mined by hydraulic ‘giants’. Small groups gear up with harnesses and helmets to take on the challenges below.

Dropping into the canyon control your 50 foot decent, rappelling another two times to a thundering 40 foot waterfall.  Climbing out the dry canyon brings you face to face with the next several challenges.

Sounds of trickling cascades surround the narrow canyons as crux climbs and ladders take you thru the deep walled canyon on forested paths in the beautiful natural settings.

Although no experience is required this canyon is suited to people that have a decent level of fitness and a sense of adventure!

My family (kids aged 15, 10, and 9) loved canyoneering. One of the highlights of our trip for sure, in part because it was physically challenging and a little scary and everyone did great. The guides were super supportive and patient and we felt very well prepared and taken care of. The walk through the canyon was really stunning. Highly recommend.
