Talkeetna Alaska River Running Guide

Weather for Talkeetna Alaska Forecast

Talkeetna, Alaska, got its start as a gold-mining and railroad town early in the 20th century. As it turned out, however, the town's big attraction was a few dozen miles away -- the 20,320-foot-high Mount McKinley, known throughout the world as Denali National Park.

Talkeetna is only a step from the outdoors. This classic Alaska town boasts a wide range of activities including flight seeing over and/or onto Denali, riverboat rides, rafting, jetboat rides, hiking in nearby Denali National and State parks, fishing in the Talkeetna River, dog mushing tours, and more!

Summers are pleasant, but winters are a real challenge. Summer high temperatures will likely be in the 60s and 70s, but late summer brings cool rain. Winter lows may fall to -30 degrees.
