Welcome to Borealis Adventures
Borealis Adventures is located in the Yukon River village of Galena, Alaska. We offer guided, small group wilderness journeys on the Yukon River with a focus on experiencing the wonders of the Alaskan wilderness, understanding rural Alaskan lifestyle, and gaining insight into Koyukon Athabascan Native culture.
The region surrounding Galena is blessed with a diverse offering of cultural and natural history opportunities virtually undiscovered by most Alaskan visitors. These include the Yukon River, three National Wildlife Refuges (Innoko, Koyukuk, Nowitna), gold rush history, the Iditarod Trail, native history and culture, and a variety of plant and animal wildlife.
For our guided trips, we travel by safe, stable sea kayaks, which lend themselves to a leisurely travel pace, allowing time for exploring, relaxing, and learning about the Alaskan wilderness. Each night is spent at a comfortable river camp, where guests will sleep in unique, cozy yurts or wall tents and will be served wholesome meals, offering a sample of local fare including fresh Alaskan salmon, moose, and wild berries.
It is the goal of Borealis Adventures that our trips go beyond the ordinary. Our trips will be rewarding for the mind, body and spirit, and guests will go back home with a true taste of the cultural and natural history of the Yukon River region. Alaska’s Borealis Adventures, come see for yourself!
