This wilderness adventure will appeal to the paddler who gazes into the mountains surrounding the river and dreams of exploring the highlands as well. On this trip you will experience a full backpacking trip in the Selwyn Mountains, followed by a classic Yukon wilderness river trip down the Hyland River. The Hyland River has excellent fishing opportunities, infrequently traveled wilderness and intermediate whitewater excitement.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Our staff will pick you up from your hotels starting at 7:00 am. Please finish eating breakfast (not included) by this time. We will depart from Whitehorse by 8:00 am. We will drive southeast along the Alaska Highway (stopping for a picnic lunch along the way) until we arrive in Watson Lake, the most easterly community in the Yukon. Here we will turn northwest onto the Robert Campbell Highway and travel for a short distance before veering northeast along the Nahanni Range Road that travels through remote wilderness towards the Selwyn Mountains. By early evening we will reach our road-head for hiking in the Selwyns. After a long day of travel we will likely set our camp near the road-head and save our energy for a big climb the following day. Includes: (L), (D).

Days 2-7: Today we will begin our travels ascending into the alpine, spending the next six days hiking in the land of grizzly bears, caribou, moose, and sheep. Hiking in this rugged and remote area of the Yukon is breathtaking and the chance of seeing other hikers is very low. We will travel and rest each day according to the abilities and desires of our hiking party: resting in camp as we see fit, where we can enjoy good meals and fine company. On the morning of the seventh day we will return to our vehicle to switch over to canoing gear and travel southwest down the Nahanni Range road to our put-in for the Hyland River. Includes: (B), (L), (D).

Days 8-14: Over the next six days we will descend the Hyland River, known for its great fishing, sections of intermediate whitewater, and tranquil Yukon scenery, perhaps taking one day off in camp to enjoy the luxury of 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. Here we will rendezvous with our staff who will shuttle us 6 hours back to Whitehorse for an arrival of approximately 7:00 pm. Dinner and hotel not included. Includes: (B), (L), (D).
