Imagine canoeing down the historic Yukon River on a professionally guided canoe trip adventure through the very places where the Klondike Goldrush 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. 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, 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.”

“First and foremost I have to say a massive Thank You to the team for providing an absolutely fantastic trip down the Teslin/Yukon Rivers, which was safe, fun, entertaining and educational. Mark and Laura made their job look easy, which I think (and they proved over & over again) means that they are extremely good at what they do, always smiling, supportive and patient, regardless of how many times they have explained the same thing, and, what a pair of cooks, the food was great. The storyteller, Len, was a memory bank of unbelievable ‘true’ stories and jokes, but I’m still not sure ’bout that dog. This was my first real holiday in 20 years and first ‘adventure’ holiday ever, but I’m certain it won’t be the last. Hopefully I’ll make it back next summer, if not, then definitely the summer after that.”

“Thank you for a very relaxing and educational Yukon River trip. This kind of trip could be intimidating, but your easy going manner dispelled any fears. People like us, office workers, really need this kind of vacation to help put everything back into perspective. We got more than our money’s worth in memories and experiences. What you are doing , you sure do well.”
