A kayaking trip in the Yukon offers you unique access to a vast wealth of rivers and lakes surrounded by pristine Yukon wilderness landscapes and wildlife. Let an expert guide show you all the secret spots over the course of a multi-day adventure, or rent equipment for a clean and simple self-guided excursion.
Both beginners and experts will find thrills galore along waterways that range from frothing white to flat-out smooth.The large, clear and cold glacial-fed lakes offer endless kayaking routes with a new vista around every bend. Drop a fishing line along the way for some feisty wild lake trout or pick a valley and hike the alpine amongst the wildflowers. Better yet, cruise lakes like Atlin, Frenchman, and Kusawa in stealth mode scanning from ridge to ridge for active bear, moose, caribou, or wolf.
Yukon rivers, like the Alsek and Tatshenshini, offer both mind-bending whitewater, putting your pries and up-stream ferries to test, or just a little froth to keep your smile hard-wired. Often braided to the max, pick your line, and paddle downriver to your evening accommodation. This would be the guide’s choice of gravel bar; selected to maximize the midnight sun and inevitable alpenglow.
