Since you will be away several days of traveling from inhabited areas for extended periods of time we strongly suggest you plan your trip well in advance. If you have no or very little experience traveling and living in remote areas we would like to suggest one of the guided adventures of Nature Tours of Yukon.
Plan carefully and take enough food on your trip. On most rivers there is no place to restock your larder once you have started your trip. At the same time choose your equipment carefully.
Makes sure you gather all the information about the laws of Yukon Territory and observe all of these laws. If you plan to fish or hunt, but also regarding the environment there are laws you must obey at all times. You will receive the most important regulations when you sign up with us.

Nature Tours of Yukon promotes responsible, low impact, wilderness travel and we would like to help you to do the same. We invite you to review our information about Leave-no-Trace camping.

Please inquire about the difficulty of the river you have selected for your adventure. Use good judgment concerning your paddling skills, your wilderness experience and knowledge of wildrness rivers in remote areas. For more information read our page about wilderness saftey .
