Departure: According to Arrangement

 

Duration:  10 Days

 

Price: Varied depending on number of participants

 

Overview:

Beaver Creek is suitable canoeing for families and beginners.
While not listed with the National Parks of Alaska, Beaver Creek with its beautiful river landscape and virtually unspoiled nature is registered a “National Wild and Scenic River”.

The starting point of our canoe trip is located 50 miles northeast of Fairbanks, reached by car via the Steese Highway.  Beaver Creek  flows through the White Mountains, where its headwaters are. The mountains are named after their lime stone formations and ridges.

On our float through this stunning landscape we make camp on extensive gravel banks.
Beaver Creek offers excellent opportunities to fish for grayling and northern pike.
We may see: moose, beavers, caribous, eagles and grizzly bears and many other animals.

At the end of our roughly 125 mile river trip, we take out at Victoria Creek, where we will be picked up by a bush plane and flown back to Fairbanks.

 

Highlights:

  • 1st Day: Arrival of the tour members in Fairbanks, reception at Fairbanks International Airport, transport to North Pole.
    In North Pole: joint preparation of the tour, barbecue in the evening to get in the mood for the forthcoming trip.
    Overnight stay in tents.
  • 2nd Day: Breakfast together and after that joint packing of our equipment. Once we arrive at Beaver Creek, we load up canoes and float part of our distance. After that we will build up our first camp in the wild.
  • 3rd Day until 8th Day: After we have acclimated ourselves a little bit, the real adventure begins. Since we have planned plenty of time for the whole tour, everybody can enjoy and relax without time pressure. There are always possibilities for short walks or extensive fishing. Maybe we can complete our dinners with freshly caught fish. We round-off evenings sitting together around campfires.
    Beaver Creek is registered as a class I, which means a very gentle and relaxing float. This in turn allows for great wildlife viewing and observing.
  • 9th Day: We take out at Victoria Creek, where we are picked up by a bush plane, brought back to Fairbanks and drive back to North Pole. There we will enjoy our last barbecue together and hopefully share our exciting adventures.
  • 10th Day: After breakfast, transport of our guests to Fairbanks. Here is where we say Goodbye.
