Tatshenshini-Alsek
 
Raft North America's Most Spectacular Glaciated River

The Tatshenshini-Alsek River Expedition has long been regarded as North America's most spectacular whitewater rafting trip. Bisecting one of the most pristine wilderness areas in the world, these rivers defy the human imagination by cutting through the world's largest non-polar icefields--the seemingly impassable Alsek, St. Elias, and Fairweather Ranges. This 160-mile river makes a remarkable transition from the arid Yukon Territory to the Gulf of Alaska and offers river travelers a sublime wilderness experience.

Please convey our thanks to Tommy and John. You always have absolutely wonderful river guides! Competent, knowledgeable, engaging personalities and perfectly at ease in every situation. And Julie of course is just the best, what a wealth of information.

Thanks again."

Marsh Fork of the Canning
 
Paddleraft the Jewel of Alaska’s Arctic

The Marsh Fork of the Canning is one of the fabled rivers of the North Slope. Running due north out of the Romanzoff Mountains, this glacial, spirited beauty cuts through the heart of Alaska's Serengeti: a wildlife refuge of the first magnitude. Remote from human influence, the 19-million-acre Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is host every summer to the calving and migration of 175,000 caribou. This trip provides a remarkable opportunity to descend from the high mountains to the coastal plain. A flexible daily itinerary enables us to paddle our rafts and then enjoy layover days for hiking, fishing, and photographing to our hearts' content. Days are long, sunsets endless and nights ablaze with stars and Northern lights.

In mid summer, the Arctic is in transition. We will pass through a visual tapestry of autumnal splendor. Encounters with caribou, Dall sheep, grizzly bear, wolf, fox, peregrine, gyrfaclon, snowy owls, and muskox, heighten the drama of this journey.

This trip is being offered as an exploratory with all the joys and challenges that derive from expeditions of this nature. Since 1976, we have operated all of our Alaskan trips as explora-tories with our clients. Our crews relish the opportunity to share a new river with like-minded adventurers!

Rogue River
Paddlerafting and Inflatable Kayaking on
Our Most Enchanting River

Oregon’s Rogue River is one of the great rafting rivers of the American West. We call it our most enchanting haunt: a beautiful and luxuriant river that offers whitewater enthusiasts a remarkably pristine wilderness rafting experience as it winds through the richly forested Siskiyou Mountains of southern Oregon, alternating quiet swimmable stretches with percolating chasms of whitewater.

As rivers go, it's like home to us-- a comforting, nurturing, intimate place. Whether it's the abundance of wildlife, its verdant fir and madrone forests filled with the sweet scent of blooming azaleas, the serenity of our campsites, or the frolicksome nature of its rapids, the "Wild and Scenic" Rogue offers something for everyone.

"Yes, it was another wonderful passage down the Rogue. So peaceful. Nirvana for the senses.

The crew was marvelous, and very coordinated. The riverbank dinners were out-of-sight delicious. Rachel Streeter, the flautist and her guitar and recorder accompanist Jim Oakden were a delight. I found Sean's wines stunningly flavorful and beguiling. Naturalist John Kipping, with his knowledge and enthusiasm, was a joy to be around.  And Jaime, Danielle, and Peter shared their knowledge and love of the river and their navigating of it seem so effortless. Next time with mild
encourage- ment, I, too, could be a "duckateer!"

Thanks so much again, guys.
Sign me up for next year!"

Cheers!

The Klamath
Paddlerafting and Inflatable Kayaking
on Our Most Playful
Family-Oriented River

The Klamath is one of California's most exquisite rivers. Cutting through a stunning, precipitous canyon of conifers and rushing crystalline side creeks and waterfalls, this jaunty river drops, cavorts, and glides through casual riffles, restful pools, and bouncy rapids that require the deft maneuvering of paddleboats and inflatable kayaks.

The Klamath supports a rich diversity of wildlife including blue heron, osprey, bald eagle, river otter, deer, and black bear. The warm water, playful rapids, and lush side canyons, make this an ideal river experience for adventurers of all ages.

"I had the time of my life and can still feel the rapids. Haven't put on my watch yet either.

I've got a new motto: Life is just something I do between river trips."
