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.

Rafting

Our Yukon whitewater rafting companies combine scenery, adrenalin and culinary magic to create a unique paddling adventure in Canada's North. Start dreaming about a rafting journey down the Alsek, Tatshenshini or Firth rivers. Go home with once-in-a-lifetime sights like calving glaciers and caribou crossing the river etched in your memory.

Yukon river outfitters are known for their commitment to whitewater safety and progressive code of conduct.
