Sometimes we’d have that whole river all to ourselves for the longest time. Yonder was the banks and the islands, across the water; and maybe a spark—which was a candle in a cabin window; and sometimes on the water you could see a spark or two—on a raft or a scow, you know; and maybe you could hear a fiddle or a song coming over from one of them crafts. It’s lovely to live on a raft. We had the sky up there, all speckled with stars, and we used to lay on our backs and look up at them, and discuss about whether they was made or only just happened. Huck Finn

We will have a beautiful log raft on the Yukon River at the bridge, mile 56 Dalton Highway this summer. Contact us for an exceptional "glamping" experience! This summer's raft will be a replica of the raft we used for Nat Geo's "Yukon River Run"

"We said there warn’t no home like a raft after all. Other places do seem so cramped up and smothery but a raft don’t. You feel mighty free and easy and comfortable on a raft." Huck Finn
