Canoe

Canoes are the traditional mode of river travel in Alaska. The quiet and simplicity of Alaska river canoeing allows us to take in our surroundings slowly. Canoe trips offer the right speed, freedom and grace for navigating rivers like the Kokolik, and the legendary Yukon River. From Katmai National Park to the Gates of the Arctic and the Western Brooks Range, canoes are a great way to enjoy the wilderness.

What to Expect on an Alaska Canoe Trip

We have a fleet of 16 foot Norwegian made folding canoes and a few inflatable canoes. Depending on the size of the group, there will be one or two Arctic Wild guides on each trip, though not in each boat.

On “travel days”, everyone works as a team to make and break camp and to maneuver the canoes safely down the river. We plan all of our trips to maximize wildlife viewing and to provide ample time for leisurely picnic lunches, fishing and hiking.

Our Alaska river canoe trips frequently include one, two, or three layover days, spent exploring, fishing, bird watching or just enjoying the solitude and silence.

Preparing for your Canoe Adventure

We offer a variety of canoe trips for varying abilities. Trips like the Yukon River or Noatak River are suitable for most paddlers. Rivers like the Nigu or Canning require more experience with river canoeing. Our guides will provide canoeing instruction throughout the trip, so you do not need to be an expert paddler. Most of the paddling on our wilderness canoe trips is at a relaxed pace and no specific physical training is necessary, but being in decent shape physically will increase your overall enjoyment of the canoe trip. If you are interested in becoming a skilled canoeist prior to the trip, we are happy to arrange a course for you. Please contact us for details.

The guides were uncommonly knowledgeable, competent, hardworking, and they consistently took care of the group before taking care of their own stuff. They kept our safety in mind while staying open to suggestions, and allowing folks a lot of freedom for personal wanderings.

Reservation Request ASK A QUESTION "The wilderness was spectacular, the leadership perfect." "I am just finishing my tenth trip with you guys. As always, the trip was more than I expected and I had a great time. See you next year!" "Of all outfitters with whom we have worked (and that is quite a number), you were by far the most organized and responsive." "That feeling of wide open wonder, the possibilities for nearly limitless wandering, and the image of those proud caribou...that will stay with me a long time" "Our guide was an encyclopedia on legs. He was always willing and ready to teach, to talk, to listen, to do another hike, or to lie low in camp if we were beat. He truly gave us the trip we wanted!" Eileen - Canning River
