On this once in a lifetime trip to the iconic Canadian wilderness, you’ll paddle the Yukon River, one of the longest rivers in North America, as well as undertake some incredible day hikes in the majestic Kluane National Park. On our river trip we’ll retrace part of the Klondike Gold Rush route of 1898 and reminders of Yukon’s gold rush can be seen all along the Yukon River. All sorts of wildlife may be spotted along the way including the iconic Canadian beaver, otters, muskrats, and arctic grayling as well as wolves, moose, and bears. In the sky we can look out for bald eagles, falcons, and hawks. We’ll camp on the banks of the river each night and experience a true Canadian adventure. Following our hike we head to Canada’s Yukon Kluane National Park which houses the largest non‐arctic icefield in the world with the glacial valleys crowned by Mount Logan, Canada’s highest peak. From our base in Haine’s Junction, we’ll undertake day walks and experience the beauty of Kluane’s breathtaking mountain world ‐ a wildlife paradise where large numbers of grizzly bears, Dall sheep and other wildlife roam freely. The Yukon River is a Class 1 river. There are no rapids, and no prior canoeing experience is necessary, however, you need to be aware that this is a wild river in a remote wilderness and you will need to pack your sense of adventure! So come and join us in the Yukon and Travel‐Play‐Live!
