Once again Alpacka Raft redefines the sport of packrafting! It is time to forget everything you know, or think you knew about what a packraft is capable of. Featuring low profile tubes, modern creek boat shaping, generous bow and stern rocker, and a new planing hull floor, the Valkyrie provides kayak handling in a 6kg inflatable package.

Alpackas patent-pending planing floor sits below the bottom of the tubes to create true secondary stability and control when the boat is put on edge.  Like a kayak, this allows the paddler to hold the Valkyrie on edge for crossing eddylines, boofing off drops, and cutting through features. The bow and stern rocker keep the boat high and dry and make it incredibly easy to boof over and skip out of holes and steep drops. And the speed is, well, you have to paddle it to believe it.

The Alpacka Valkyrie is designed for both skilled whitewater kayakers looking for a backcountry and travel boat and also developing paddlers looking to improve kayak skills in a more forgiving and easier to carry package.

If you are a kayaker who is packraft curious or tired of lugging a 20kg + plastic hardshell on your shoulder into the backcountry, the Valkyrie is the boat you’ve been waiting for.

It is also a great boat for the experienced packrafter looking to step up their whitewater game or anyone who wants to develop kayak skills in a forgiving and easy to store and travel package.

RECCOMMENDED GEAR: TNP Aker 2 piece paddle, Astral Green or Blue Jacket PFD, Alpacka Pack-A-Pump


WHITEWATER DECK: The Valkyrie comes standard with the Whitewater Deck, which provides the highest performance in whitewater. The deck keeps the boat dry so it can maintain speed through features. The Whitewater Deck features a large kayak style cockpit and includes a one-piece PEX coaming, and an ultralight secure fitting spray skirt. Stay tuned for a heavy duty spray skirt option in the future.

CARGO FLY: A standard option on the Valkyrie, the Cargo Fly is the ultimate packraft gear storage solution. It features an airtight zipper installed in the stern of the boat to allow you to load your gear inside the tubes. The system provides drier and more secure gear storage and improved paddling performance due to a lower center of gravity. The Cargo Fly is perfect for expeditions, whitewater performance, and keeping your gear dry in any conditions. | Small Internal Dry Bags may be purchased separately and are designed to work with the Cargo Fly system. The bags clip in place along each side of the tubes with a side release buckle and allow for better organization and weight balance than placing the contents of your pack loose inside the Cargo Fly. They also act as additional balanced air chambers to make it easier to get to shore in the event of a puncture.


The below figures are our recommended size based on your height. The Valkyrie is sized for a whitewater fit, meaning that a typical paddler in the recommended size will be able to deeply bend their knees for maximum engagement in the thigh straps for the most secure high-performance fit. Paddlers over 190cm or under 160cm may have trouble getting the best fit. Similarly, paddlers over 108kgs may find that the internal width is too narrow for long days on the water. Paddlers in the 172cm - 178cm range should be able to size up or down depending on whether they prefer a tighter/looser fit or a shorter/longer boat. Contact us for sizing advice.

*Weight includes all components except inflation bag, repair kit, and internal dry bags for Cargo Fly.
**Packed size is a reference measurement based on folding each lengthwise edge of the boat to the center and rolling from the bow. There are many other methods of rolling and folding the boats that will result in a different packed size that may be more or less efficient for packing depending on the situation.
***The Valkyrie is a performance whitewater boat and does not have a maximum capacity as this will change based on water conditions. In general, the Valkyrie will support paddlers up to 104kgs and 7-10 days of gear. Adding cargo weight to the boat will impact handling, and in some cases, handling will improve in certain conditions with 6-13kgs of cargo.
