Copper River Tours & Excursions

Copper River Tours

The Copper River Valley is rich in Native Alaskan traditions and is the home of a vibrant Athabascan culture. And the waters of the Copper River are home to the legendary Copper River Red Salmon. Copper River is also near America’s largest national park. Wrangell-St. Elias National Park is home to nine of the sixteen highest peaks in the United States and Kennicott, a historic copper-mining boomtown.
