You can kayak, pack-raft, or canoe the river. Be prepared with all you need for an extended trip, as you will be in the wilderness with no civilization. Just your party, the animals that live in the area and the mosquitos!
The river flows west past the limestone ridges of the White Mountains before turning north and east and joining the Yukon River, continuing through the Yukon Flats.

You can tailor your specific float on Beaver Creek to the length you desire. Most people spend between seven days and three weeks on the journey and are picked up by float plane.
If time is no issue, relax on the Yukon River for a few more weeks and take out at the bridge on the Dalton Highway for a more convenient road-to-road adventure.
From Nome Creek to the Dalton Highway spot is 360-miles! This float trip has been called the longest road-to-road float in North America.
