Shuttle Services & Trip Logistics
Alaskan Shuttle Services
In addition to Double Shovel Outfitter’s hunting and float trips we also offer van transportation through our shuttle service, based in Fairbanks, Alaska. There are many river systems with road access in Alaska that provide opportunities for remote packrafting, canoeing, backpacking, rafting, and float trips. Many of these rivers are ideal destinations for parties planning a remote trip without the added cost and logistics of using a flight service.
Birch Creek, a Wild and Scenic River, is notable for providing a one-week remote float trip with road access at both ends. Many of these Rivers provide a meandering path through Alaska’s remote scenic areas such as the White Mountains, the Brooks range, and Gates of the Arctic National Park.
Our most popular destination is northern Alaska’s aviation hub, Coldfoot, Alaska. Many Brooks range backpacking and Brooks range pack rafting trips end or begin in Coldfoot. Alaska’s Dalton Highway, or, the “Haul Road” (as seen in Ice Road Truckers) can be difficult to access and navigate, particularly due to rental car restrictions. Our Fairbanks shuttle service is a solution to this logistical problem. Van shuttle service includes transportation for up to 10 passengers with accommodations for personal gear, rafts, paddles, Etc. Our drop-off and pick-up shuttles are flexible and can be moved to best accommodate the details of your remote Alaskan trip.
