Black bears are quite common in the Yukon valley and are often seen by our guests. Watch the ridges of the cliffs along the river to spot the busy mammal. Moose are numerous in the forested foothills, and bald eagles nest along the river banks. Beavers are busy getting their winter supplies in, and several times we have seen grizzly bears strolling along the shoreline. Around the camp fire we will hear some interesting stories about the first river travelers. At the Yukon River bridge in Carmacks we will part from our canoes and travel with our van via the Klondike Highway back towards Whitehorse.
