Arctic Pass

BACKPACKING THE ARCTIC PASS – BROOKS RANGE, ALASKA – 7 days

River basinJoin us on this feast for the senses as we trek our way from the southern side of the Brooks Range into the headwaters of the magnificent Killik River Basin.

The “U” shaped valleys of the upper reaches of the river show in a dramatic way the power of the glaciers that shaped this land. We will see dall sheep on the sides of mountains, and we’ve been fortunate enough to observe wolves on many occasions.

Small groups of caribou should be moving through as they begin to sense the coming migration. To get a really comprehensive understanding of a river, what better way than to walk the headwaters that birth it, and then let it carry you in its embrace.

You can also combine this spectacular trip with the exciting float down the Killik River(Killik River Wildlife Float) for the adventure of a lifetime!Rainbow
