This 3½-hour tour navigates the Chena River on a historic stern-wheeler, stopping at a replica Athabascan village as well as the riverfront home and kennels of the late Susan Butcher, four-time winner of the Iditarod sleddog race. The boat leaves from Steamboat Landing, a replica of a historic trading post (if trading posts were massive tourist gift shops).

There's a '40 below' room on the boat, where you can experience the intense cold of an Alaskan interior winter day; the chamber is cooled to, you guessed it, 40 below zero.
