An aerial picture of the Alatna River in Alaska, USA shows how the river winds around the landscape as it leaves the Brooks Range through the Alatna Hills towards the Koyukuk River. Designated as a national wild and scenic river, some of the river is within the boundaries of the Gates of the Arctic National Park in Alaska and is one of the most beautiful rivers found throughout America.

The start of the first part of the Alatna River is in the central Brooks Range where it flows through the Endicott Mountains passing by Circle Lake, the Arrigetch Peaks, Takahula Lake until reaching the Helpmejack Hills. The second part of the river heads through the Alatna Hills until meeting up with the Koyukuk River near a village called Allakaket. The entire length of the river, the first and second sections is approximately 321 miles.

The scenery along the route of the Alatna River is beautiful and the river remains fairly calm creating paradise for float trips which take anywhere from 4 to 14 days to complete. While on a trip along the Alatna River, keep your eyes open for any signs of wildlife which include moose, wolves, caribou, black bears and grizzlies.

For those who do not have the time to float the river while on vacation, an aerial view in a chartered float plane allows visitors to see the beauty of the area and the way the river meanders through the valley.
