Rio Lempa, El Salvador

We floated the lower section of the Rio Lempa last year and had a pretty good time. It's nothing challenging, but it gives you some nice views of the countryside. We were in El Salvador during the dry season, so our rafting options were limited. This stretch has consistent flow year round from dam r...

Fish Creek near Sitka

Posting this one not because it's a great trip, but b/c someone else is bound to have the same idea and I'll save you the effort. There's a river in Fish Bay, near Sitka, that flows right along next to some hot springs. On the topo maps, you'll also see an old trail. This appears to be heaven--short...

Re: Juneau Icefield to Sloko to the Nakina to the Taku

Hey Gregory- Sorry we never replied to your questions about this trip. It looks like you were planning to do it last July/August, so we're probably pretty useless to you now.

Juneau Icefield to Sloko to the Nakina to the Taku

I thought some of you all may be interested in some of the details of pack rafting the Sloko, Nakina, and Taku in Southeast Alaska/Western BC. This part of the world seems to be little visited, despite boasting fantastic terrain and diverse scenery. We had trouble getting any good river details befo...
