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.
