Au paradis du canotage

Au paradis du canotage
Plongez votre pagaie dans l'eau des lacs et des rivières sauvages du Yukon

Les 70 rivières sauvages du Yukon sont toutes très différentes les unes des autres, chacune sise au milieu de paysages d’une beauté incomparable ayant leurs propres caractéristiques géologiques et historiques et servant d’habitat à une faune diversifiée. En les parcourant en canot ou en kayak, vous découvrirez cependant qu’elles ont certaines caractéristiques communes – des eaux cristallines et un environnement où la nature règne à son état le plus pur.

Affrontez les rivières sauvages du Canada à la pagaie

Avec ses quatre rivières faisant partie du Réseau des rivières du patrimoine canadien et ses douzaines de cours d’eau figurant en tête de liste des connaisseurs, le Yukon est le paradis des canoéistes.

Nature sauvage, paysages grandioses, histoire, culture et aventure se conjuguent pour faire de toute excursion en canot sur les cours d’eau du Yukon une expérience mémorable. Ceux qui recherchent un parcours peu exigeant, offrant quantité d’occasions de se laisser porter tranquillement par le courant, mais comportant juste ce qu’il faut de rapides pour se garder éveillés, trouveront les rivières Teslin et Big Salmon à leur goût, surtout s’ils aiment pêcher.

Ceux qui veulent plus d’action choisiront les rivières Snake, Bonnet Plume et Wind qui sillonnent une des régions les plus sauvages d’Amérique du Nord. Mais le choix ne s’arrête pas là : les rivières Macmillan, Beaver, Wolf, Hess, Takhini, Liard et Pelly sont autant d’autres destinations pour les passionnés de canot en eaux vives. Si vous êtes un adepte du kayak de rivière, votre plus grand dilemme sera de décider sur quel cours d’eau amorcer votre aventure yukonnaise, tant le choix est vaste – et dans la plupart des endroits, vous aurez la rivière pour vous seul. Mais quelle que soit la rivière pour laquelle vous opterez – entre la Tutshi l’enjouée, la Tatshenshini avec ses rapides de classe internationale, ou l’Alsek au cœur du parc national Kluane, un parcours tumultueux populaire auprès des kayakistes chevronnés pour ses rapides de classe IV en succession – vous n’en reviendrez pas de la beauté des paysages qu’il vous est donné d’admirer entre deux bouillons, possiblement les plus saisissants que vous ayez jamais vus.

Ceux qui préfèrent le canotage en eau calme ne seront pas en reste : de petites merveilles naturelles les attendent au détour, dont les lacs Kathleen, Fox, Tagish, Five Mile, Frances, Frenchman et Chapman pour n’en nommer que quelques-unes.

Cathers Wilderness Adventures

Cathers Wilderness Adventures is a two-generation family business offering year-round wilderness experiences.

In winter, we welcome guests for dog sledding. In summer, we offer cabin-based stays (with guided day activities) at our wilderness home on Lake Laberge, as well as camping trips: hiking and backpacking supported by pack dogs, and canoe or boat camping along the historic Yukon River.

Located 30 miles (50 km) north of Whitehorse, there is no road to our shore of the lake. Access to our home and cabins is by dog team or snow machine in winter and by boat or canoe in summer. Our trips focus on small groups or individuals and are personally guided by our family. Our experience includes 30 years living year-round in this spectacular location, guiding since the mid-1970’s, and thousands of miles of travel in the Yukon wilderness - camping, guiding, sled dog racing, and hauling supplies to our home.

We customize trips for individual interests and abilities. Scheduled trips are also available. From 1 day to 1 month stays or longer, feel at home in the wilderness.

Cedar and Canvas Adventures

Since 1995, Cedar and Canvas Adventures has been delivering Yukon wilderness vacations that focus on the natural cycles and habits of wildlife and flora. From the awakening of bears in early May to the burst of alpine flowers in July to the moose rut and Aurora Borealis of late September, we optimize your wildlife viewing opportunities by understanding and following these natural patterns.

River trips run 6 to 16 days, utilizing paddle and/or freighter canoes of the vintage wood-and-canvas Chestnut designs. Choose from five northern rivers – Yukon, Teslin, Big Salmon, Pelly and Wind. Enjoy comfortable camps, light to moderate hiking opportunities and campfire meals that are superb!

Our alpine treks up to 2000 meters (7000’) are 5 to 6 days in length with lots of wild flowers and wild sheep! Fishing/camping vacations include lake trout, northern pike and Arctic grayling.

With a combined 57 years of living in the North, Clayton and Nansi are steeped and well-seasoned in the ways of wilderness travel and wildlife interpretation. Our goal is to provide you a first class wilderness experience.
