Days 3 to 10
On our way to the Big Salmon River we're canoeing on Quiet Lake, Sandy Lake and Big Salmon Lake after two days we'll reach Big Salmon River. The fast currents of the Big Salmon River can change quickly to easily passable rapids or to slower currents. It may be necessary to portage, or line the canoes around log jams and sweepers. The mountains, up to 2000 meters/6.500 ft. high, surround the endlessly winding Big Salmon River. The riverbanks are overgrown by deep impenetrable brush and forest; however, with some luck you might spot moose, bears, lynx, or wolves, and often you catch sight of beavers and bald eagle on the Big Salmon River. The fish we try to catch can provide variety on the daily menu. You'll have the opportunity to learn a few new tricks of wilderness survival. After nine days we leave the Big Salmon River behind and reach the Yukon River.
The canoe trip ends at Carmacks. A 2 hours’ drive will take you back to Whitehorse, were a hot shower and a soft bed awaits you
Today we'll make sure you will be on time at the airport for your flight home.
