After waking up that morning, crawling the final 2km across the rock cover glacier, running and dodging for our lives down a chute with constant rock fall and finally reaching the shore of Tasman Lake where we inflated our @alpacka_raft and launch out to “safety” below an 80ft tall wall of ice, we saw the 1st people outside of our group since starting this adventure. It was a motorboat full of tourist that had come out to see the glacier face as it fell into the lake. At first they were a long ways away but as the wind from an approaching storm blew us closer to them and further from the glacier they approached. - - Tour Guide:”Hey Guy! As it is my job working on this lake, I feel responsible those on the lake and I want you to know that it is extremely dangerous to be so near the face of the glacier” his eye scan us and our skis attached to the @alpacka_raft . Me: “ Buddy I agree but after starting death in the eyes for 72 hours those ice cliffs were the least of our concerns, we are just happy to be getting out of here. Tour guide: where did you guys come from anyways? @pebbleshoo: “ The Fox Glacier carpark” Tour Guide: “from where?!?” @pebbleshoo: “The Fox Glacier carpark” Tour Guide:” And how did you get here?” @thekiwiapproach : “over Graham Pass” The tour guide looks up towards the pass for a bit, turns on hit boat motor and left. - - After that we were blown by the wind and carried by the waves to the opposite shore, the end were we decided to enjoy a short float down the river before pulling out and finishing our trip where @thewildindiangirl was waiting for us with the car. - - There is still so much to share but I am excited to announce that @chrisbrinleejr is working of a video from our trip and I’ll be sure to let you know once it is done. Thank you for your support and following along. - - #expandedperspectives #liveyouradventure @eddiebauer #ThisI
Little boats, fat tires, and big landscapes. Many of you know our customer service gal, Molly Harrison. Like many people at Alpacka Raft, she spends a lot of time packrafting (along with climbing, mountain biking, bikerafting, hiking, and hanging out in her cabin with her two dogs). She just took up bikepacking in the last year, and, wow, has some embarked on some cool adventures. Thanks so much for sharing your photos and stories with us, Molly!

“Utah Romping: When you set out to bike through canyons and packraft on lakes, but the canyons are in flood stage and the lake doesn't exist anymore where the map indicates... you have to get creative. I couldn't have asked for a better crew to monster truck around canyon country with last week. It would have been easy to wake up to pouring rain on the first day of our trip and bail- but hamburger bike bells, Halloween candy, campfires and gettin' rad in the desert with these guys prevailed!”

The team of four ended up hauling their fat bikes “through places where no bike should have ever been,” says Molly. They found far wetter conditions than expected, quicksand, and too much mud that meant a lot of torturous hike-a-biking. But eventually reached Lake Powell, where they got a much-appreciated reprieve from the muck.

Our Story

Welcome to Alpacka Raft. We are a community of genuine, self-reliant and creative eccentrics, enthusiastic about unique adventure and passionate about our product. Our values reflect the history of our boats and the makers who design, craft, and use them. We recognize our packrafts give people an incredible freedom to explore; they are tools that help people actualize adventures, even ones yet to be imagined. And so we encourage explorers to use them with a beginner’s mind because there are no rules with a packraft, except to have fun, be safe, and to not take life too seriously. Always remember, each person has her or his own great journey to discover. 

We built the first Alpacka packraft in a Chugiak, Alaska basement, fall 2000. Since then, we have led the industry in research and development, pushing the boundaries of design, reliability, advanced materials, and an established infrastructure for customer service that allows for quick and easy repairs or upgrades. Our packrafts continue to refine and define the sport. They are bombproof tools of exploration, bolder and more rugged than the most skilled athletes using them, but so stable and streamlined they’re perfect for entry-level adventurers. Our rafts can take you anywhere.
