Rent your equipment or meet your guides in Whitehorse, where you can buy any last minute essentials. Depending on which river you're paddling, you'll drive or fly to the put-in. This is a great chance to explore some of the Yukon’s villages. Mayo is the gateway to the Peel River watershed. Teslin, Carmacks and Dawson City are on the Yukon River system. Haines Junction accesses Kluane area rivers, and Watson Lake is the base for southeast Yukon rivers.
Embark on a signature Yukon experience: Join a day or multi-day canoe, kayak or rafting trip on a remote wilderness river. Paddle a section of the iconic Yukon River. Savour the fresh air, clean water and expansive views. Enjoy hiking, fishing and photography, and expect to see wildlife like bears and moose and spectacular scenery.
This is your first day on the river and your first night camped under Yukon's glorious midnight sun. You're brushing up on your J-stroke and poring over maps. You can feel the river camaraderie building.
You paddle past eagle nests, cliff swallows, shore birds, and ducks. You keep your camera ready incase larger wildlife like a bear or moose appear on shore. Together, you explore the wilderness on short hikes, take photos, and try catching fish for dinner. The company is fantastic, the scenery is spectacular.
Nearing the end of the trip, the group is settling into a pleasant routine of fresh mornings and endless twilight around the campfire, leisurely days of paddling and hiking on scenic ridges.
You spend your last evenings together sharing stories and savoring the journey that will soon come to an end.
