Packrafting

Packrafting is an adventurous way to move through Alaska’s Arctic. Many rivers, quite close to Wiseman offer a variety of skill-level packrafting. Some are day trips, some are overnight trips. We are happy to discuss options with you, and depending on circumstances, provide a shuttle service if necessary. The Hammond River, Koyukuk River, Matthews River, and Bettles River, are a few nearby options. Many other rivers throughout the Arctic provide amazing packraft experiences Coordinate with Coyote Air to get dropped off and map out a way to hike in.
