Four-day Paddle on the Yukon River

Our four-day Yukon River canoe tour is the perfect introduction to one of the world’s great rivers. You’ll encounter Klondike Gold Rush historic sites and wildlife sightings, and enjoy wilderness camping and delicious food on the riverbank. You don’t have to be an expert paddler to enjoy this guided trip down the Yukon River.

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

Note: 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 hours a day paddling, leaving camp earlier and arriving at the campsites later in the day.

Trip Itinerary 

Note: 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 hours a day paddling, leaving camp earlier and arriving at the campsites later in the day.

  • Day 1 Arrive at Whitehorse Airport and transfer to the hotel in the city centre. In the evening your guide will explain the details of our canoe trip down the Yukon River as well as advise/assist in 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 begins! At the first campsite, we make camp and prepare dinner. You will have no problem falling asleep in this quiet wilderness after a day paddling in the fresh air.
  • Days 3 and 4 After an early 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 take us through deep brush and forest; you might spot moose, bears, lynx, or wolves, and often you’ll catch sight of beavers and bald eagles. If we’re lucky we will catch some fish for supper, and you'll have the opportunity to learn a few new tricks of bushcraft.
  • Day 5 Late in the morning you will arrive in Carmacks, where 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
