Multi-Day Float Trips

Multi-day float trips are great if you are wanting to get away for more than just one day! We offer multiple locations that show the beauty of the Buffalo, depending on how long you want to stay. No matter where you start, the beauty is in the journey of floating down the Buffalo! If camping out under the stars and being one with nature just isn’t your thing, check out our one-day float trip page.

Carver to Baker Ford

  • 26.3 miles
  • Two night, three day trip

This stretch of river features one of the most popular bluffs along the Buffalo National River, Skull Bluff. When the water is right you can paddle through the eye of the skull. For another view of Skull Bluff, take a hike up to the Narrows, also known as the Narrs by locals.

The Narrs bluff is a narrow rim bluff that divides the Richland Creek Valley from the Buffalo River Valley. It is located on the right hand side of the river about a half-mile upstream from Woolum access. You are able to hike up on top of the bluff to get a bird’s eye view of the Richland Valley and the Buffalo National River. Fun fact: The Narrs is the exact mid-point of the Buffalo River.

Additional Multi-Day Floats

We will launch for a multi-day float trip anytime between the hours of 8:00 am – 5:00 pm. Keep in mind, the earlier you arrive in the morning the faster we can get you started on your adventure. If you have a special launch time in mind, contact us prior to your arrival time to schedule special requests.

These times are estimated based on the average float conditions and can change due to weather conditions and water levels. If you have a reservation, we will attempt to contact you in the event that water levels are too low or too high to float.
