Wind River canoeing puts you in the center of Yukon’s absolute wilderness. The Wind River flows through the heart of the Mackenzie Mountains and Peel River plateau in Yukon’s northern reaches. It is characterized by swift water, sharp bends, and some Class II sections, and plenty of remoteness. As a result the paddle is best suited for adventurers with river experience or previous canoe instruction.
The 200 km paddle from McClusky Lake to its intersection with the Peel River follows some of the Yukon’s most remote and pristine wilderness areas. The scenery is outstanding with inviting ridges along its length for some day hiking.
The habitat supports an abundant wildlife population that includes woodland caribou,
Dall sheep, moose, eagles, peregrine falcons, and bear.
One of the many highlights of this canoe adventure is the red cliff walls at the entrance
to an incredible canyon on a portion of the Peel River that marks the end of our trip.
