Alaska Packraft School & Alaska Packraft Guidebook

Your Resource for Alaska Packrafting

Thanks for your patience while the site is under construction- getting a major facelift.


Jule Harle teaches “how to” packraft courses throughout the state. These instructional courses focus on packraft specific considerations, paddle techniques, skills needed for river running, individual & group safety as well as the “Alaska factor” when embarking on trips in Alaska. Great for newer or intermediate paddlers seeking to refine their skills-both on the water & with backcountry travel and route finding.

Jule has been professionally teaching and guiding Alaskan rivers since 2007. In addition to skills courses, she guides custom wilderness backpacking and packrafting trips throughout the state. Ideal for individuals or groups who want guidance & professional experience managing AK terrain or are new/unfamiliar with trip planning in Alaska. Contact the Alaska Packraft School directly for course registration or to plan a custom trip.

2023 GUIDED TRIPS & COURSE DATES TBA JANUARY 2023

The Alaska Packraft Guidebook is in print & available to purchase. A valuable resource brought to you by 15 years of first hand experience. The 350 pages highlight over 70 runs ranging from Class I-IV. The guidebook covers 9 different regions, not only river info, but access beta (hike in, fly in & runs) and water levels specific for packrafters. Includes day & overnight routes. This is the first ever packraft specific river guidebook!
