Trip Itinerary

book yukon river canoe trekkingDay 1
Arrival to Whitehorse. Transfer from Whitehorse Airport to the hotel in the city center. In the evening your guide will meet with you and explain the details and getting prepared for canoeing the Yukon River. Of course, he will advise /assist you packing your dry bags.

Day 2
In the morning we drive to Deep Creek at the shore of Lake Laberge, where a power boat brings you to the  outflow of the Yukon River (± 24 kilometres) and your canoe adventure starts. At the first camp site, we make camp and prepare dinner. You will have no problems falling asleep in this quiet wilderness after such an exciting day.

Days 3 and 4
We'll have an early morning again and after breakfast we're ready for the next part of the journey. Thanks to the steady current of the Yukon River, we'll reach our daily goals without a problem and en route we'll stop to visit historic sites. The fast currents of the Yukon River takes us through deep impenetrable brush and forest; with some luck you might spot moose, bears, lynx, or wolves, and often you catch sight of beavers and bald eagle. 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.

Day 5
Late in the morning you will arrive in Carmacks, were our canoe trip comes to an end. From here we drive back to Whitehorse, where you will appreciate a hot shower or bath and a hearty meal in one of the many restaurants.

Day 6
Today we'll make sure you will be on time at the airport for your flight home

Trip Notes

  • IMPORTANT TO KNOW: This trip is a shorter version of our regular Yukon River tour. Because this trip is 2 days shorter, it means you will spend at least 8 to 10 hours a day on the river, leaving camp earlier and arriving at the camp sites later in the day.
  • Yukon River is a class 1 river. This means there are no rapids, but be aware this is a wild river in a remote wilderness.
  • You will be required to sign a 'release of claims and waiver of liability' form prior to the departure of this tour.
