Our Teslin River & Yukon River canoe tour is a perfect introduction to Yukon’s pristine and magnificent wilderness. You don’t have to be an expert paddler to enjoy a trip down the Teslin River.

On this nine-day canoe trip, hosted by our experienced guide, you’ll experience the best Yukon has to offer from spectacular landscapes, wildlife sightings and Gold Rush artifacts, to wilderness camping and delicious food cooked and served on the banks of the river.

Watch the shores for wolves, moose, and bears and the skies for bald eagles, falcons, and hawks. Watch the waters too - they’re home to the iconic Canadian beavers, otters, muskrats, and also to a world-famous salmon run in September.

The last couple of days of this canoe trip you'll paddle the famous Yukon River, where the relics of the Klondike Gold Rush may still be found, tucked away on its shores.

Our group sizes range from four to seven participants, and our company is certified for Safe Travels by the World Travel & Tourism Council.

Trip Itinerary 
  • Day 1: Arrival Whitehorse Airport and transfer to the hotel in the city center. In the evening your guide will explain trip details to prepare you for your canoe trip along the Teslin River. Of course, he/she will advise/assist you packing your dry bags.
  • Day 2: Please arrange an early breakfast (not included), so we can leave early in the morning for Johnson’s Crossing where your canoe adventure will start. This first stretch of our expedition is easy going with lots of time to practice your paddling technique. At the camp site we put up the tents and prepare dinner. You’ll have no problem falling asleep in this quiet wilderness after a day in the fresh air.
  • Day3-8: After breakfast you're ready for the next portion of the journey. Thanks to the steady current of the river, we'll reach our daily goals without a problem and en route we can pause for fishing – if we’re lucky we will catch our supper! The Teslin River is lined by deep impenetrable brush and forest; with some luck you might spot moose, bears, lynx, or wolves, and often you catch sight of beaver and bald eagles. You'll also have the opportunity to learn a few new tricks of bushcraft.
  • Where the Teslin River joins the Yukon River the current picks up speed a notch and signs of the Klondike Gold Rush can be seen all along the shores of the Yukon. Hootalinqua was once bustling with fortune seekers and steamships on their way to the gold fields of Dawson City. These days the Stern wheeler "Evelyn" on Shipyard Island is the only one left to tell the tale. Old woodcutter cabins and equipment from the “Days of Gold” are tucked away in the forest along the Yukon River. One of the highlights of this trip includes a visit to the ancient abandoned First Nations encampment at the confluence of the Big Salmon and Yukon River.
  • Day 9: At 1 PM you’ll arrive at the take-out near Little Salmon Village, were your canoe trip comes to an end. From here we take the three-hour drive back to Whitehorse where you will appreciate a hot shower or bath and a hearty meal in one of the many restaurants. (Hotel Whitehorse included in the tour price).
  • Day 10: Today we'll make sure you will be on time at the airport for your flight home.
