It looks like we may have 8-10 guys who have never done a float trip, myself included. We are beginning the planning process now, and we've decided that we would like to do one of these rivers for a 10-day trip. Goodnews, kanektok, or Togiak. These appear to be good choices for novice rafters? We are planning for 2017.
I know this could be a big group. I'm looking for recommendations. We will all fly in to Anchorage. From there, it seems to make sense to fly to Dillingham or Bethel, depending on river. Looking for lodging options in both towns, and more importantly, bush flights to accommodate a larger group. Possibly multiple planes or multiple flights? Any suggestions will be appreciated.
