Your Resource for Alaska Packrafting

Alaska Packraft: The Guide to Where it All Began

Jule Harle teaches “how to” packraft courses throughout the state. These instructional courses focus on packrafting skills, paddle techniques, skills needed for river running, individual & group safety as well as the “Alaska factor” when embarking on trips in Alaska.

A packraft guidebook is currently in the works; it will be a resource for river information, access (hike in, fly in & road access routes), with lots of other tips & beta for packrafting rivers in Alaska. It will be in print & available for purchase Spring 2022.

The guidebook will highlight Alaska’s best packraft trips in the Class I-IV range. The guidebook will include day trips and multi-day routes throughout the state in regions including:

Southcentral Alaska

  • Seward/Eastern Kenai
  • Hope to Girdwood
  • Anchorage Area
  • Matanuska & Susitna Valleys

Glenallen to Valdez Area

Talkeetna Area

Interior Alaska

  • Denali State Park
  • Denali National Park & Preserve
  • Wrangell St Elias National Park & Preserve
