Former co-owner Gaia Marrs grew up in the Kennicott Valley and has spent her whole life rafting, hiking, sledding, skiing and dogsledding through the surrounding wilderness. Her first time down the Kennicott, Nizina and Chitina Rivers was at age two, riding in the bail bucket at the front of the raft. Gaia has been leading river trips in the Wrangells for eight years, and was a participant in these adventures for many years before that. She is happiest behind the oars, with many days of wild river stretching out ahead and a new group of adventurers to share in the journey. Whether on the other end of a telephone, behind the desk, or on the river, Gaia is committed to helping you experience the wilderness journey you are looking for.
