Canoeing The Yukon River

Retracing the route of the Klondike Gold Rush, this is an active outdoor adventure, camping on the banks of the Yukon River in a vast wilderness surrounded by wildlife.

The Yukon River is one of North America's longest, and the longest in the Yukon. It provided the principal means of access for the legendary Gold Rush of 1898, so is rich in history and culture. However the river is more than its history, as the land through which it flows is rich in wildlife. As you paddle, keep an eye out for wolves, moose, and bears on the shore, bald eagles, falcons and hawks wheeling in the skies, and beavers, otters, muskrats in the river.
