Legendary Wilderness Adventures in British Columbia & Yukon

Teslin River Guided Canoeing


For a moment we find ourselves in a time warp… It is a place you can’t see. You feel it.

The Teslin does not have the name recognition that the Yukon River has, but it is in every way as culturally, historically,
