Things To Do

While many choose to enjoy a relaxing float down the Yukon, enjoying the grandeur of interior Alaska, there are those that would like to add a few things to the itinerary to enhance the experience. Some choose the adventurous route down the Charley River and to watch its wildlife. Others enjoy stopping along the Yukon River to view historic remnants of bygone eras. You will NOT see RVs, smell car exhaust, or wait in line. You WILL experience solitude, quiet, and the natural beauty of eastern Interior Alaska and the Yukon River.
