Glad to join you in here... After several hours spent searching on the internet about our future trip in alska, I might admit, I'm a bit tired about not finding the informations we need.
The quest is simple, however...
We're five young guys from Switzerland. (25 Y.O average) and we desperately want to spend our next vacation over there in Alaska.
The idea is to land in Anchorage, to take an air taxi with all the gear we need (rented rafts and personnal gear and equipment...), to go downstream on an alaskian river for some miles and miles, days and days and to reach a special spot where the air taxi could meet us and bring us back to anchorage to flight back to switzerland.
I've seen good deals about renting on alaskadownstream.com, and good deals about flying with alaskaairtaxi.com. No problem about that.
Our main issue now is to find a great river close enough to anchorage to make our dream come true...
Impossible to find some indications about the rivers we should choose. Impossible to find someone here in Switzerland to help us out...
So I'm trying here, as you guys seem to be pretty aware about what we should do !
Can someone please help us with our trip ? Wich river would be good enough for that very special trip ?
Did anyone already made a trip like that before ?
I must mention, we're not really rookies, as we spent a month in british columbia two years ago doing a very special trip like that. Even though British Columbia ain't nothing like Alaska !
Anyway, we just need to find a river and the certainty that we could do it our way, without any guide. Just by ourself...
danattherock, someone on a french forum recommended you as a specialist to help us with that case. So I beg your advices ! Please !!!
Thank's and take care !
