All our Yukon River guidebooks have been researched and prepared by Len Webster, an adventure river guide who has led countless tours over the 24 years that he worked in the Yukon. His knowledge of the rivers, their histories, what is important to be aware of, and how best to prepare, will enhance and compliment your paddling experience.

pelly 2 copyNew 2014 – Yukon River: Pelly Crossing to Dawson City
This guide is a great alternative to paddlers who want to avoid
Five Finger rapids. Personally I prefer the Pelly River access
route to the Yukon River and up to Dawson City. There are no
difficult sections and it offers a visit to historic Pelly Farm.

This route joins the Yukon River at Fort Selkirk. From Pelly
Crossing, approximately 1 hour from Carmacks via the
Klondike Highway, it is about 60 km/37 m to Fort Selkirk.

We used another guide to complete the Whitehorse to Carmacks portion of the Yukon River in 2008. We were not completely satisfied with it. Tried your guidebook when we returned to complete our paddle from Carmacks to Dawson City last summer. We like you to know that it was extremely helpful. Reference to coordinates, best campsites, and historical and natural information was interesting and current to where we were along the river.
