Offering Packraft Sales and Rentals

Packrafting began in Alaska and is the best way to recreate and travel in the wilderness of the Far North.  It all begins in Fairbanks with a packraft from Northern Alaska Packrafts, the only packraft rental and sales business in Alaska. The small size, minimal weight, ease of transport, and durability has revolutionized backcountry travel from recreational day-trips on flatwater to gnarly whitewater runs down unnamed creeks. The opportunities are endless.

Are you planning a leisurely float down a serene river, to fish for trout on a remote lake, traverse across the Brooks Range, or haul game after a hunting expedition?  Make your adventure a reality and explore Alaska in a packraft.

What we do:
  • We rent boats so you can try out packrafting before purchasing a new boat. Or rent a boat for your summer adventure or hunting trip.
  • We work directly with you to ensure you get a boat that fits you comfortably and meets your needs and expectations.
  • We provide you with a personal orientation of the boat, which includes inflating, deflating, packing, attaching your backpack or bike, basic repairs, etc.
  • We provide information about trip ideas and planning.
  • We are an Alpacka Raft dealer and offer equivalent prices, but you won't have to pay for shipping costs to Alaska if you visit our shop in Fairbanks.
