Yukon River Quest Canoe & Kayak Race



Yukon River Quest Canoe & Kayak Race

The Yukon River Quest is the ‘summer cousin’ of the wintertime Yukon Quest. It’s the longest endurance marathon canoe race in the world, and it attracts some of North America’s top long-distance paddlers. Canoes and kayaks take to the Yukon River at Whitehorse trying to be the first boat to Dawson City, 700 km downriver. Top finishers usually arrive within three days, while others take a bit more time to enjoy the historic Gold Rush route. In 2007, high-performance teams in Voyageur canoes blew away the rest of the field and took the top three spots.
