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.

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.

Cathers Wilderness Adventures

Cathers Wilderness Adventures is a 2 generation family business offering year-round wilderness experiences.
Located on the shore of Lake Laberge, 50 km north of Whitehorse, there is no road to our wilderness homestead. Guests arrive by dog team, snow machine, boat or canoe, according to the season.
Our experience includes over 30 years of guiding and living year-round at this spectacular location and thousands of miles of travel in the Yukon wilderness - camping, guiding, sled dog racing, and hauling supplies to our home.
Our trips focus on small groups or individuals and are personally guided by our family. In winter, we welcome guests for dog sledding and outstanding views of the night sky, including northern lights when they are out. In summer, we offer cabin-based stays, where you can explore the beautiful region on guided day trips by foot, canoe, or boat. Or join us for a camping trip: hiking and backpacking with pack dogs, or canoe or boat camping on the historic Yukon River.
