The West Fork of the Gulkana River is an 8-day and 80-mile trip down one of Alaska's Wild and Scenic Rivers. This is not the more popular East Fork that most people take near Paxon. Gorgeous scenery abounds with a sense of solitude and quietness like no other. We will put our rafts in by airplane at an unnamed lake based at the South Branch of the West Forks Headwaters and float the 80 miles to Sourdough Campgrounds. Along the way, we experience several wildlife encounters including big bull caribou, beaver, ducks, geese, owls, eagles, trumpeter swans, and more. Nature lovers and a photographer's paradise. We also try our luck fishing where the north branch and the south branch merged to make one. Rarely visited, here is your chance to explore all the wonders of Alaska's wild and scenic rivers - The West Fork of the Gulkana River.
