In spring, when the first warm sunbeams lie down over the meadows, Yukon's wildlife wake up once again. This is the time where the black bears and grizzlies wake up from their long winter sleep. Eager bears start to eat the typical yukon kinnickinnick berries on the meadows and slopes along the Yukon River. Many Moose cows will now give birth to their young on one of the Islands and bald eagle gurads their new born.
The quiet approach from a canoe allows us to view the annimals in their nature.
Ever wanted to canoe under the midnight sun ? Canoeing on the Teslin- and Yukon river, where overgrown historic cabins can be found, is one of the most typical Yukon experiences.

This is not just canoeing. Fishing, wildlife viewing, short hikes and exploring the area along shore make this a very rich adventure.
