I've flown into the Ivishak in the Brooks Range each of the last two summers and then floated back to the Haul Road. It's a great trip, especially the first few days in the mountains. The advantage to a trip like this is it cuts your flight expenses in half.
I'm just curious what other trips are available like this along the limited road system we have? The river should be suitable for a family float with no more than class III or easier IV's (whitewater is not a trip requirement).
I'm familiar with the Talkeetna River trip, but that might be bigger whitewater than I care for especially if it's a single boat trip. I've looked at Clear Creek also out of Talkeetna, but it seems as if that would require a helicopter ride in due to the limited landing stips. I've yet to get a respeonse from the one helo guy I called in Talkeetna.
What else is out there?
