- 10-14 Days
Embark on a signature Yukon experience: Join a multi-day canoe, kayak or rafting trip on a remote wilderness river. Savour the fresh air, clean water and expansive views. Enjoy hiking, fishing and photography, and expect to see wildlife like bears and moose. Scrumptious riverside cuisine, knowledgeable guides and spectacular scenery will make it a trip of a lifetime.
Day 1 – River Rendezvous
You'll meet your guides in Whitehorse, where you can buy gear and any last minute essentials. Depending on which river you're paddling, you'll drive or fly to the put-in. This is a great chance to explore villages at the edge of Yukon wilderness. Mayo is the gateway to the Peel River watershed. Teslin, Carmacks and Dawson City are on the Yukon River system. Haines Junction accesses Kluane area rivers, and Watson Lake is the base for southeast Yukon rivers.
Days 11-12 – Until We Meet Again
All good things must come to an end, but chances are you've already planned your next Yukon paddling adventure before you've even left the river. The return shuttle is reflective, and you spend your last evening together telling stories, sharing photos, and enjoying a fine meal.
Whether you're looking for a secluded cabin in the woods, or a lively hostel in downtown Whitehorse, you'll find it here. There are plenty of options for modest to grand accommodations in custom cabins and lodges. For a communal atmosphere and a great opportunity to meet fellow travellers, stay in one of our highly regarded hostels.
