General Information & Rates

7 Bridges Boats & Bikes rentals7 Bridges Boats and Bikes offers equipment rental (boats, canoes, bikes) as well as transportation to facilitate your adventure.

Before your trip, we will discuss your plans and offer recommendations in order to accommodate your scheduling needs and personal desires. We have been renting canoes for more than 20 years, and have received feedback from travelers on “best spots”, as well as places you may wish to avoid.

For longer trips, plastic buckets can be provided to protect your belongings in the event that your canoe rolls over.

Maps can be obtained from the University of Alaska Fairbanks at the USGS (United States Geological Survey) Map Office, 208 Elvey Building.
