Join us on an epic 10 day adventure in the remote Alaskan wilderness! You will need to get yourself to Eagle where we will pick you up at the airstrip or meet you at the retreat property if you drive in.
Day 1: Arrive in Eagle. We will pick you
up and travel to the retreat where you will settle in, have an authentic Alaskan homestead meal and we will go over safety issues. We will outfit you with a life jacket and two dry bags for your clothing, survival gear and food. Weight restrictions do apply.
The following morning we will travel to the Yukon River to begin an 8 day float trip to Circle, Alaska where the hot springs await! During the trip you will learn survival skills, float the mighty Yukon in rafts and canoes, enjoy the peace and serenity
found in the wilderness, stop at historic locations and learn the history along the Yukon River. It is a 160 mile float trip on class I/II river conditions. Average river speed is 5 to 8 mph. It is a strong but slow flowing silty river fed by glacial runoff.
You will be instructed in survival scenarios and skills as you travel the historic mighty Yukon River. You will be learning skills such as fire starting, water procurement, shelter building, navigation and orienteering, trap making, track identification,
wild edibles, picking a campsite, recognizing and treating minor injuries in the field, securing food in bear country, etc.
Day 9: you arrive in Circle where you will camp out one final night and enjoy an Alaskan BBQ!
Day 10: The following morning
after breakfast, we load the boats and gear and begin our 12 hour drive back to Eagle. You have the option to stay in Circle, ride into Fairbanks to be dropped off at a hotel or the airport, or ride back to Eagle with our company.
You will be required
to be capable of paddling a boat and know how to swim. A hold harmless agreement is a mandatory requirement from each client before beginning the 10 day adventure. The area you will be traveling thru is extremely remote, no services available and once on the
