DEPENDABLE, STURDY, SPACIOUS, RAPID AND
EASY SET-UP 4-SEASON TENTS:
These tents are Alaska tested tough - specifically customized and
sewn in the U.S.A. Tents are as snug as cabins boasting stand-up
room!! Of greater importance - rapid deployment, bombproof, and
4-season Alaska weather tight!!! Fully featured for withstanding
even the worst hurricane force storms - yet effortless to set up
within five to seven minutes by even a beginner. The original
4-season design tent was intended for an American ascent of Mount K2
in the Himalayas and used as a safeguarding, maintenance-free base
camp. Many of my groups over the years have commented that this tent
is the most weatherproof, storm worthy, easy/quick set-up, and
spacious design they have ever experienced or set eyes on. We mainly
use two models of this straightforward, robust design. Our favorite
models are the 10' by 10' and 8'X8'. These tents have functional
features that make it superior to any other tent in existence for
multi-day river float trips here in Alaska. You will find our tents
are made to the highest standard and craftsmanship - making certain

CAMPSITE SELECTION & PRACTICES:
Our objective is to establish tightly knit, well thought-out, and
impact-free campsites. By doing so, we facilitate the ability for
campers to set-up campsites in well-situated locations under more
favorable and manageable conditions that will not attract
preventable, unwanted encounters with wildlife. This practice
promotes leave-no-trace conservation when we make and break camp.
No principled outdoor individual or group wants to introduce
impact on the lands, trash the rivers, and form bad habits for
wildlife… especially when there is still something truly special
about pulling into a pristine Alaska camp spot where there is no
evidence or blemish of human influence.
THE ALASKA RAFT CONNECTION identifies with the considerable value
of your vacation time and guarantees YOU hassle-free contentment
in camp by outfitting every wilderness float trip with the very
best camping accommodations and camping equipment made.
WITH AN ETHICAL COMMITMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT,
WE PRACTICE LEAVE-NO-TRACE CAMPING.
