NORTH FORK OF THE KOYUKUK RIVER FLOAT TRIP IN ALASKA -7 days
Float Alaska’s North Fork of the Koyukuk River! The North Fork of the Koyukuk located in the Gates of the Arctic National Park in the central Brooks Range provides an ideal float for the arctic adventurer. This 140-mile float will take you through a variety of ecosystems, affording a glimpse of Alaska’s diversity.
Our decent among the rugged peaks of the Brooks Range will take us initially through a valley surrounded by magnificent mountain scenery.
We have an excellent chance of observing moose, grizzly, and perhaps caribou. The valley then unfolds into lowland hills and arctic taiga. Numerous gravel beaches are available for camping with ample opportunity for a meal of fresh caught arctic grayling. Along the way we’ll stop to look at the remains of a miner’s cabin built in the 1930’s. Our weeklong journey ends in the bush community of Bettles.
