Our Intimate rivers program encompasses a couple of ideas... they are travel to "smaller streams" that offer a more intimate overall experience, or doing so on any of our trips but with "less gear" than on our full-blown standard or deluxe trips.
On some waters, this style of trip is necessary due to the river not having direct access by a lake or just because the size of the stream is such that the larger rafts used on our deluxe trips are not practical.
These trips allow you to get up close and personal with trophy salmon, trout, char, and other species on smaller streams. You still get the same personal service and attention to detail that has long been a hallmark of an Alaska Rainbow Adventures Alaska fly fishing float trip.
This level of service is our least expensive option, utilizing smaller rafts, Everest expedition-style tents, and fewer amenities than all our other trips. A roughing-it, bare-bones style adventure, without seats in the rafts or cots in the tents and are comparable to what most other operators offer as "standard" Alaska float trip fare, not to be confused with our upgraded Standard style trips.
While we try for a 2-1 guest to guide ratio on all of our Alaska float fishing trips, occasionally when there is an odd number of participants our intimate rivers style trips will end up with a three to one ratio.
All of our float trips require some participation and group effort. Your participation with unloading the rafts, moving camp gear, setting up taking down sleep tents is greatly appreciated. Each day anglers will be able to rotate guides enabling everyone to fish with each member of the staff if desired.
We offer Alaska float trips on the state's most "epic" float trip waters, including the Kanektok or "Chosen" river, the Goodnews, and over a dozen more!
