The Hulahula River flows through mountains, rolling tundra and finally through a breathtaking canyon before reaching the coastal plains and the Arctic Ocean. This is an opportunity to see the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, battleground between oil lobbyists and environmental groups, an area that has been much debated about in the last 20 years about drilling for oil. The coastal plains are the calving grounds of the 130.000 strong porcupine caribou herd. Visit one of the most pristine and vast pieces of arctic tundra left in the US. Class III rapids.
No prior paddling experience is necessary since you will be with an experienced river guide. On this 12 day trip you will have time to watch wildlife, take pictures, hike on arctic tundra and enjoy incredible scenery. The trip starts in Fairbanks with a scenic flight to the small Native community of Arctic Village. From here we will take a small bush plane to our put in on the upper Hulahula River on a gravel bar. Our schedule for the next 12 days is going to be very flexible and on a relaxed schedule.
