Yukon River Guided Canoeing
Legendary Wilderness Adventures in British Columbia & Yukon

Yukon River Guided Canoeing


“The Yukon River, our first choice for paddling into the past.”
Canoe and Kayak Magazine

Yukon River guided canoeing is connecting with history. It is synonymous with the 1898 Klondike Gold Rush. The Yukon River’s impact on the history of the Yukon and the people who lived it is profound. Nowhere during the canoe trip is this more evident than at Fort Selkirk, an important settlement from the gold rush period through to the 1940s. Restored buildings stand in stark recognition to the people who were the embodiment of pioneer spirit and the First Nations peoples who welcomed them into their territory.

Minto is the ideal put-in for our Yukon River guided canoeing adventure. It is here that the Yukon River leaves its parallel course with the RV and tour bus studded Klondike Highway, and enters the remoteness and serenity of Yukon’s wilderness. The fast current of the Yukon River will transport us deep into a glaciated landscape of low hills, granite rock, high sandy cliffs, and spruce forest. Along the route chances are very good that we will see an assortment of wildlife from Dall sheep, mountain goats to the occasional bear.

The days on the river help build the anticipation of reaching Dawson City, the center of the 1898 Klondike Gold Rush. The anticipation of the gold rushers must have been equally apparent. Finally we round a bend in the Yukon River and see Dawson City for the first time. That excitement was played out then, and now, for all Yukon River travelers.

We will spend time in Dawson City, exploring its rich history, visiting the original gold fields, and enjoying the period entertainment.
