The Brooks Range in Alaska is the Northernmost extension of the Rocky Mountains spanning 700 miles. It’s remote location draws the more adventurous of backcountry travelers to explore it’s rivers and mountains. In July of 2017 Iwan Eicher and Christian Schlappi from Switzerland stayed a few days at Base Camp Anchorage hostel to prepare for their journey. Over two weeks they hiked through mountains and packrafted through multiple rivers all the way out to the Arctic sea. To document their trip they brought one of their drones along. Take a look at some of their captivating footage.
Iwan has come to Alaska several times to explore the backcountry. We look forward to his next visit.
