ABOUT NOVA RIVER RUNNERSNOVA is Alaska's oldest river rafting tour company under original ownership. Since 1975, we have accomplished many firsts in guided adventure travel in Alaska; such as the first commercial whitewater rafting on Alaska rivers. When river rafting started to become popular worldwide in the 70's, we saw how these inflatable water crafts could open up travel on more of the states rivers that were otherwise difficult or impossible to access. Our early wilderness trips included several first descents and trips through the newly formed National Parks and Refuges with organizations like National Geographic, Connaissance du la Mode and the National Audubon Society.Our name was derived from AVON, a pioneering British raft manufacturer, spelled backward. In the 1970's AVON rafts were the best you could buy.In 1980, we introduced the first river rescue training in Alaska with Les Bechtel who at that time was affiliated with Natahalla Outdoor Center, and in 1983 we adopted Rescue III's Swiftwater Rescue program and supported its eventual acceptance as the primary accredited training for the industry and public service for many years. Our annual training is offered over Memorial Day weekend every year.With NOVA, you can expect to experience the Alaska you imagined. Our trips focus on a selection of wilderness, scenic and cultural areas that are not being impacted by industrial tourism. Our goal is to enrich your appreciation of our states wilderness, special places, characters and history while experiencing the fun of active outdoor activities on a few of the many rivers, trails and open spaces in Alaska.For fishing trips visit our affiliate company, River Wrangellers, in the Copper River Basin.
