alaska sternwheeler riverboat tour from fairbanks

Introduction

Boarding the Riverboat Discovery for an unforgettable journey into the history of Alaska’s Interior, this journey carries passengers along the Chena and Tanana Rivers on the only authentic sternwheeler riverboat still operating in Alaska.

A guided cruise which focuses on the area’s human and natural history, you will hear incredible stories of the native Athabascans who made this area home for so long. You will watch a floatplane, something which has become an icon of modern northern exploration, as it takes off, meet the hard working sled dogs and gain insights into the incredible Athabascan culture with a personalized tour of the Chena Indian Village.

You will also witness the strange phenomenon of the ‘wedding of the rivers’, where the clear waters of the Chena River merge with the silt-laden Tanana, creating clouds of silt rising and falling, churning and mixing as the two mighty rivers join.
