As gentle and enjoyable as a river cruise may be, there are those who prefer the rough and tumble of a whitewater rafting experience. If you belong to the latter, then Nova River Rafting Adventures is something that you should definitely try. Alaska's premier water run features two trip options—a two-canyon run with class IV rapids that lasts two and a half hours, and a three-canyon tour with class V rapids that typically takes four hours to finish.
Flipping rafts and paddlers falling into the water can be a regular part of any whitewater rafting challenge, so as fun and entertaining as it maybe, it's important not to forget that white water rafting comes with its own set of risks. Before being faced with the class IV to V rapids offered by Nova, your friendly Anchorage urgent care physicians would like to share with you these basic safety tips to ensure that your whitewater trip is as incident-free as possible.
