Tinayguk River, Gates of the Arctic National Park, Alaska
Gates of the Arctic National Park, Alaska| Map |
Clear, winding Tinayguk River is one of the more remote streams in the already remote Gates of the Arctic National Park, a choice destination for travelers who have already committed to a trip to the arctic circle. The Tinayguk is only a few feet deep and is considered one of the least-traveled, high-quality whitewater rivers in the park, perfect for kayakers and rafters. This 20-foot-wide channel makes its way through a mountain divide and offers heart-pounding Class II and Class III rapids, so it’s not for beginners. The shore is rocky but flat in places, and makes a good spot for camping and some of the best fishing in Alaska. Hard to find and hard to forget, Tinayguk River is for the adventurous at heart.
