A group of us are considering two separate floats on rivers in Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve this next summer.
Preliminary research has begun and I'm curious what sort of opinions are out there. We are experienced, are interested in all the side attractions (fishing, hikes, etc.), and can devote up to about 9 days per river, although 7 might be a better time fit.
If you could pick any two of these six which ones would they be and why? Is there one river out of these six that you would call a "can't miss"?
