Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
The Marsh Fork of the Canning River in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is an artist’s delight. Fall in the Brooks Range can be spectacular, the landscape transforms into rich vibrant reds and yellows, animals are on the move foraging and fattening up before the long winter. The Marsh Fork is the perfect place to observe this special time. The river initially is very small and flows across the valley floor with inviting walks and hiking at every stop. Some trip come to an end on the Canning River, the largest river in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. It is recommended to have many lay over days on the Marsh Fork trip allowing opportunities for hiking wildlife viewing and relaxing. The Marsh Fork is exciting with fast moving water, fun rapids and beautiful vistas around every corner. Arctic River Guides will outfit your river trip through this incredible landscape, and outfit you on this unique journey unlike any in the Arctic.
