“After a tiring bushwhack from Hell Roaring Creek we were pleased to see that Flood Creek offered nice hiking up a nice cobble bed,” Dylan Stewart recalled. “As we made our way up the creek the valley constricted and the clouds started rolling in. This, along with the name of the creek, had us quickening our pace. We soon found ourselves hiking up a canyon about 2.5m wide and 10m deep with water well above our waistline (at least for me being the shortest of the group). After a kilometer or two we ran into an impassable section and were forced to climb out a steep face to the canyon rim. At this point we realized why they call it Flood Creek; the entire valley drains out this small canyon which extended for a few kilometers in front of us. As we hiked along the canyons edge in the rain, we were happy to be out in the open again. Later in the night as the rain intensified we could hear the roar of the water rushing through the canyon where we had been only a couple hours earlier.” All this week photos and stories by the team of @pburbidge @dylan_stewart1 @skyhunterpearson & Paul Christensen. They spent 3 weeks hiking 620+ miles, paddling 10 rivers, and portaging 93 miles from the Little Nahanni River to Tulita, Northwest Territories on the Mackenzie River. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀📷: by Paul Burbidge #thisispackrafting #NWT #northwestterritories #nahanninationalpark #nahanniriver #canada #crookedcanyon #packrafting

Our Story

We built the first Alpacka Raft in a Chugiak, Alaska basement in the fall of 2000. All these years later we’re still designing and hand-building simple, tough packrafts with the best materials and techniques available. All of our boats are handmade in Mancos, Colorado by a small team of local craftsmen and women. Alpacka Rafts are artisan craft, from stem to stern. Each one has a little personality of its own.

Although the idea remains simple, we have been developing our techniques, materials, and designs for over 15 years to create the lightest, most durable, and effective packrafts in the world. Our designs and innovation have completely redefined the sport, and with the help of adventurers all over the world, pushed packrafting further than we ever thought possible. An Alpacka Raft can take you anywhere.
