NOLS: Alaska Backpacking and Packrafting Course
Packrafting is a sport born of adventure racing and exploring wild mountains. It will allow the expedition to cover a route and see areas that would be inaccessible to either hiking or rafting alone. You’ll be traveling for a month with the possibility of seeing an abundance of wildlife including Dall sheep, caribou and grizzly bear. There will be an emphasis on lightweight techniques and gear. Come make Alaska part of your adventure.
Alaska Backpacking and Packrafting Course: June 8-July 7, July 16-August 14; $4,870.
