Yukon is a paddlers’ paradise—our rivers are among the most coveted canoeing, kayaking and whitewater rafting destinations in the world. None are more perfect than the Wind River, a Peel tributary and Class II mountain river that begins in the colour-stained Wernecke Mountains.
The Wind River enjoys a rare combination of factors that make it the ideal northern wilderness canoeing journey: it flows through stunningly beautiful landscapes, the alpine hiking from the river is extraordinary, wildlife is abundant, and it’s novice-friendly. Highlights on a 10-day to two-week trip could include fishing for Arctic grayling, watching wolves, finding fossils or reading about the region’s ill-fated Lost Patrol.
