Also featured is Canoe Alaska, which rents bikes, paddleboards, canoes and kayaks, and the company’s “Downtown Bike and Boat” trip. Start out at one of their locations with a bike and cruise on the flat, paved trail along the river. Then, when you reach Canoe Alaska’s downtown location, trade in your bike for a kayak and paddle back to where you started. (Canoe Alaska is also conveniently located about a mile away from HooDoo Brewing, a local favorite.)
