Coleen River Rafting
Float the Coleen Wild and Scenic River
The Coleen River float trip is ideal for small groups wishing to explore Arctic Alaska. We begin our trip on the upper sections of the river. Surrounded by open tundra and back dropped by the splendor of the Brooks Range, the magnitude of the country is breathtaking. The Coleen meanders though the tundra making a snake of timber. As we travel south, the timber grows larger and begins to fan up the surrounding hills. The river runs clear and swift over a pebble bed; large gravel bars and tundra benches flanking its sides. As we quietly glide downstream, a keen eye is kept alert for the many critters that call this area home. Common game seen include moose, caribou, grizzly, wolf, wolverine, and occasionally, muskoxen. The surrounding hills are scarred with caribou trails left by the migrations of the Porcupine caribou herd.
The Colleen River trip is a custom trip for two to six guests and one or two guides offered in June or July. Dates can be arranged to meet your group’s schedule. The trip length is typically 7 days.
Contact us for custom trip pricing, which depends on group size and specific itinerary. Price includes guide, transportation to and from the river from Fairbanks, outfitting with camping and kitchen equipment, food, rafting gear, lifejackets and paddles or oars.
