This year I am going to enhance my outdoor experience by using an Alpacka Raft Yukon Yak. Even so it weights around 3.5 kg including paddle I believe this is still a weight worth to carry for some additional fun even so if you hike ultralight. Here comes a short unboxing review of the Alpacka Raft Yukon Yak.
The package which I have received from the packrafting store in Germany. To have a feeling for the seize of the package I have placed a shoe next to it.
And that is included: Packraft Yukon Yak with spraydeck, Manta Ray carbon paddle, Packtach System, Secumar Vivio 50.
Items included if you would only order the Packraft: Packraft, Spraydeck, Repair Kit, Seat, Inflation bag, manual.
Packsack and Packraft
Flat as a pancake
Raft inflation bag and valves
Mouthpiece to get the final piece of air into the packraft
You can see the pipes used for the spraydeck
Aqua Bound Manta Ray Carbon
If you are looking for a new experience on your hiking trip or if you want to pass a river where there is no bridge, then you should give a thought if a Packraft could be an option for you. It’s also quite nice just to float along the river and enjoy the landscape rather than carrying the heavy backpack during your whole trip. Here you can check out one of our packrafting adventures in Sarek National Park in Northern Sweden.
