A unique guided canoe expedition deep into the Yukon Territory
Home to Grizzly bears, Bald eagles, otters and beavers, the Yukon territory borders Alaska and is one of the few places on Earth that can boast true wilderness. We take full advantage of the warm summer months, when daylight is almost permanent.
In our canoes, we make a 400km expedition northwards from Carmacks to the historic gold-rush town of Dawson City. En route, we marvel at the serenity of snow-capped mountains, vivid lakes and pristine forest, stepping back in time to rediscover abandoned forts, wood-camps and ruins.
Like true explorers, we set up camp on the tranquil riverbanks, with plenty of opportunities for chats around the fire or even a refreshing dip. Dawson City, a place of great legend, welcomes us back into civilisation, and nearby we try our luck at panning for gold!
What makes this trip responsible?
We spend most of our time in a wilderness area on this trip. Local guides enforce our 'leave no trace' policy in regard to litter - all supplies and packaging taken on the canoes will be returned to the main town to preserve the wilderness area. We recycle wherever possible and all leaders are trained in responsible tourism to enable them to follow best practice.
