A combination of classic Alaskana: float planes, big mountains, crystal blue lakes, and homesteading history. This “route” is uniquely freeform. You’ll be able to choose from hundreds of available hiking options. With the vast majority of the paddling being on flat water this is a great option for a novice packrafter.
The Winner Creek to 20 Mile River loop is a great first packrafting trip. For those with packrafting skills, this route offers a quick, easy-to-access, multi-sport adventure. The hike up to Berry Pass is seriously underrated, and the views of the 20 Mile watershed are absolutely stunning.
Class III Packrafting River. Remote and exotic landscape. 30 miles hiking, 30 miles floating. Fly-in to Port Heiden, fly-out from Aniakchak Bay.
Experience the backcountry of Denali National Park in a way few others do. You’ll board a bus from the Visitor Center and disembark just before Sable Pass and then immerse yourself in the wild Alaska landscape. Recommended for intermediate backpackers and beginner packrafters.
