8 Day Classic Yukon River Canoe Trip

Day 01: Whitehorse

Individual arrivals in Whitehorse, and transfer to your downtown hotel. This afternoon we’ve planned a group meeting to meet your fellow group members and get to know your guide a little. We’ll review your gear and you’ll have a chance to pick up any missing items. Evening free for optional sightseeing, shopping, and touring. Overnight in Whitehorse.

Day 02 - 08: Yukon River Canoe Tour

Our canoe trip starts with a transfer to the legendary Yukon River. The river’s name means “great river” and thus it is very well named. It travels more than 3000km from its source lakes south of Whitehorse, to the Bering Sea. During the next seven wonderful days, we’ll paddle over 300km on this great river to roam the Yukon wilderness.

Our first day of paddling brings us to Lake Laberge, which requires some shoreline paddling. The reward is some wonderful paddling along the 30-mile section of the river, a narrow, winding stretch that provides some great scenery, good fishing, and brings us to some interesting historical sites including the old trad-ing post of Hootalinqua and RNWMP outpost. As we continue along, we’ll reach the confluence of the Teslin and Big Salmon Rivers; wildlife, including black bears and moose, is often spotted along the shorelines.

Day 8 Arrive Carmacks

After a week on the river, with very few signs of civilization, we arrive at the small native village of Car-macks, which was founded by Klondike Goldrush co-discoverer, George Carmack.

You’ll have time to grab the first meal not prepared by yourself in more than a week, before saying goodbye to your canoe adventure on the river. We’ll return to Whitehorse by road, a journey of just under three hours. Transfer to your post-tour hotel, the airport, or your next tour. End of tour services
