Packrafting is an adventurous way to move through Alaska’s Arctic. Many rivers, some close to Wiseman, offer a variety of skill-level for packrafters. Some are day trips, and some are overnight trips. Depending on circumstances, we can sometimes provide a shuttle service if necessary for nearby options.
Many other rivers throughout the Arctic provide amazing packraft experiences. Coordinate with Coyote Air for a fly-in drop off/pick up service, or map out a way to hike in or out.
