Price per person (minimum of two): $1,999
( Agenda subject to revision at any time)
Day 1: Arrive at Hughes, Tour the Community and Heading to Camp
Clients arrive on Wright Air from Fairbanks at approximately 9:30 am. KRTT will have a list of activities (tours, meals, visiting, possibly a native dancing performance, safety briefings and review of visitor guidelines, etc.) to fill the afternoon.
This may be a good time for buying gifts from local Alaska Native artisans (beaded gifts, birch bark baskets, fur hats and gloves, bidzahoolanh dresses, etc.). There will also be time at the end of the tours for buying gifts.
KRTT staff will have all gear and equipment loaded on the boats and the party will depart in the afternoon for one of the upriver camps. The evening will be spent relaxing, story-telling and getting acquainted with camp life.
Day 2: Exploring the Koyukuk River and Koyukon Athabascan Culture
After breakfast the group will head out on the Koyukuk River to explore the upriver areas of Hughes, mixed in with fishing, gold panning and any other activities that the guides and elder advisors would like to share.
This will also be a great time for clients to observe fish camp cultural and subsistence activities by the guides and elder advisors (the steps in setting a fishnet and possibly cutting fish).
A relaxing evening in the land of the midnight sun will conclude the day.
Day 3: A Final Visit in Hughes and Return to Fairbanks
After clients have a chance to soak in the views and enjoy the last morning in the wilderness of the Koyukuk River region, the group will head back to Hughes.
After a final visit in the community of Hughes (and goodbye’s to staff and the community) guests will return to Fairbanks in the afternoon. This will be the conclusion of the Koyukuk River Tribal Tours 2-night vacation experience.
