Talus Lake camping

Not far from Divide Lake is Talus Lake, which not only features a one- to two-hour hike from Divide lake, but also a cozy campground. As you approach this destination, the views only get more amazing. All the more reason to stay the night.

06 Experience

Take two weeks to paddle through history

For a truly historic Yukon journey, join a canoe or kayak trip on the Yukon River that lasts just over two weeks. You’ll spend the long, relaxed days of summer paddling, camping in tents and eating by the campfire under the midnight sun. Combine all that with wildlife viewing, beautiful mountain vistas and gold rush history, and you have a wilderness experience you won’t soon forget.
