The Hyland River is a great choice for the explorer who wants a wilderness canoe trip that offers intermediate whitewater mixed with sections of gentler river. The Hyland has truly excellent fishing opportunities, and is off the beaten track, only being paddled by a few groups each summer. The drive to the put-in is long (7 hours) but gives you a chance to experience more Yukon wilderness scenery. If you are looking for a little more whitewater excitement than the Big Salmon, but still an affordable experience, the Hyland River is a perfect choice.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Whitehorse, Yukon. Hopefully you enjoyed your travels and have arrived safely in Whitehorse, the Yukon’s capital city, nestled among the wilderness. Please arrive in Whitehorse in time for an orientation meeting at 8:30 pm the night before our departure. Guests are responsible for accommodation and meals while in Whitehorse. Whitehorse is a splendid little city and we recommend booking some additional time at either the beginning or the end of your trip to see Whitehorse. If you wish to fish on your trip but, have not had a chance to purchase a Yukon fishing license, you should do so this evening. Your guides will let you know where they can be purchased.

Day 2: Our Staff will pick you up from your hotels starting at 7:00 am with a planned departure from Whitehorse by 8:00 am. Please have your breakfast (not included) finished by this time. We will drive southeast along the Alaska Highway until we arrive at Watson Lake, the most easterly community in the Yukon. Here we will turn northwest on to the Robert Campbell Highway for a short distance before veering northeast along the Nahanni Range Road that travels through remote wilderness with views of the Logan Mountains. By early evening we will reach our put in location for the Hyland River where we will camp for the night and prepare for an early morning launch on the river. Includes: (L), (D).

Days 3-9: Over the next six days we will descend the Hyland River, known for its great fishing, sections of intermediate whitewater, and tranquil Yukon scenery. Along the way we might take one day off in camp, to enjoy a lazy day of fishing, baking over the fire and relaxing. On the morning of seventh day we will reach our take-out on the Alaska Highway in northern British Columbia, 20 minutes southeast of Watson Lake, Yukon. Our staff will meet us there and drive us back to Whitehorse to your hotels (not included). Dinner not included on your last day. Includes: (B), (L), (D).
