Wilderness Adventures in British Columbia & Yukon since 1988
Teslin River Guided Canoeing
Once you begin the Teslin River guided canoeing adventure, you are transported into a world of calming serenity, picturesque scenery, and connection with people that are and were the great story that is the Teslin River. The Teslin may not have the name recognition that the Yukon River has, but it is in its own right as culturally and historically relevant to the story of the Yukon.
“For a moment we find ourselves in a time warp… It is a place you can’t see. You feel it. Here there is a wider sense of place – planted in our intellect by people we never met or knew and by events we never witnessed. On the Yukon River it takes hold of you as you drift around each corner and discover some new remnant of time.” John Firth/River Time
Note: The Teslin River, aside of its standing as one of the Yukon’s great rivers, avoids Lake Laberge, with its strong funneled winds that can make canoeing potentially very dangerous, and can delay safe travel for days.
