Hulahula River, AlaskaFIND OUT MORE
The Hulahula River spills down from its headwaters in the remote Brooks Range of northern Alaska and churns through the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge before emptying into the Beaufort Sea on the far edges of the Arctic Ocean.
Modern-day explorers, equipped with inflatable whitewater rafts and drysuits, can take on all 100 miles of the river’s Class III-IV rapids in about a week, camping each night in the world’s most pristine riverside wilderness. The geology is dynamic: The river flows between the 9,000-foot glaciated peaks of the Brooks Range, passes through rolling tundra and steep rocky canyons, and ends in the vast Arctic coastal plain, home to grizzly bears, Dall sheep, musk ox, and caribou. Here, in the alluvial channels, lakes, and estuaries, you’ll find world-renowned birding and fishing for Arctic char and grayling.
