Imagine canoeing down the historic Teslin and Yukon River on a professionally guided canoe trip adventure through the very places where the Klondike Gold rush took place over 100 years ago. Explore the remnants of many of the original log cabins, buildings and paddlewheelers that still dot her wilderness shoreline from the days of the goldrushers.
During the goldrush the Teslin / Yukon River became the secondary route to the gold fields. It was favored by those who wanted to avoid the Chilkoot Trail and the hazardous White Horse Rapids. There was some commercial activity here into the 1940’s but has since returned to it’s natural state.
This is a land deeply infused with a rich and colourful history that still supports a healthy population of muskrat, beaver, fox, wolf, bear, eagle, trumpeter swan, and moose and spectacular Canadian wilderness.
“Last summer, we had an amazing trip to the Yukon. The highlight of our visit was the Yukon River canoe paddle we took with you. From the evening we met at the Yukon Inn for orientation until we were dropped off at our hotel for a final goodbye, we had a wonderful adventure.
A major part of the success and enjoyment of the trip was our two guides. They are two knowledgeable, skillful, and joyful individuals who made it their priority that we have a fun and memorable experience of the Yukon. We cannot thank them enough for their warm and professional approach.
The guides were always “on.” Safety was number one, whether it was a bear spray talk before venturing off on a hike or ensuring that we knew how to handle a canoe in fast water. They were extremely organized, from the details of how to prepare for the day’s adventure, to food preparation and cleanup. Every meal was a new idea and delicious. We ate well.
The two guides also brought a level of personal care and familiarity, allowing the eight of us to bond quickly. Their personalities were a great combo: different in nature, always compatible, a terrific balance of humour and complimentary toward each other and their “guests.” It was important to them that each of us was having a good time and getting the most out of the trip. Drifting down the river, rafted together, listening to a reading about the area or some stories about the areas we were passing.
It was a truly wonderful wilderness adventure.”
