Dip your paddle into Yukon's wild rivers and lakes

The Yukon is a mecca for paddling enthusiasts. Whether you canoe, kayak or raft, you'll find the perfect water adventure on one of our 70 wilderness rivers and countless scenic lakes.

Canoeing and Kayaking

With several must-do rivers among the international paddling set, and four designated Canadian Heritage Rivers, water adventurers make the pilgrimage to the Yukon for once-in-a-lifetime wilderness paddling experiences.

Choose among mellow classics like the Big Salmon, the Teslin, or the fabled Yukon River that combine scenery, wildlife viewing, history, fishing and friendly rapids. Exhilarating rivers like the Snake, Bonnet Plume and Wind flow through one of the most remote regions of North America.

For flatwater enthusiasts, experience roadside gems including Kathleen, Fox, Tagish, Five Mile, Frances, Frenchman and Chapman lakes.
