The Canoe Trail team have raced and paddled the Yukon River on numerous occasions and are offering the ultimate wilderness paddling experience. Rich and Rob have raced the Yukon River Quest Race, 444 miles of wilderness racing. Rich has led 7 expeditions to this part of the world including sea kayaking from Vancouver Island to Glacier Bay, canoeing from Whitehorse to Dawson City, and seakayaking, hiking and packrafting from Juneau down to Whitehorse via the Chilkoot Trail.
The Yukon is the home of the 1898 Gold Rush and this 2 week trip will journey along this historic route from Whitehorse to Dawson City. Over 30,000 ‘stampeders’ headed to this remote frontier to stake claims for gold. Many didn’t make it and many more didn’t find gold. There is plenty of living history still around with the Interpretive Centre at Fort Selkirk, the SS Evelyn Norcom at Hootalinqa and Dawson City itself. The trip will include time to visit the Robin McBride Museum, Diamond Tooth Gerties and Jack London’s Cabin
You will have plenty of opportunity to improve your paddling skills with our qualified and experienced coaches eager to share their knowledge on this fast-moving water.
Dates: 29th May to 16th June 2019
