Our well-trained guides introduce the participants to the proper paddle techniques on this class 1-2 river. The start of the trip is at Johnsons Crossing on the Alaska Highway, where the Teslin River winds its way through the mountains of the Southern Yukon towards the confluence with the Yukon River. Wildlife encounters along the river are quite common, and one can expect to see moose, caribou, wolf and eagle. During August and September, thousands of salmon spawn in the Teslin River, and grizzly bears are often seen. In the evenings we`ll set up camp along the river banks or on gravel bars. Meals are cooked on the open camp fire, and fresh Arctic grayling, salmon and northern pike may be added to the menu.

Hiking trips into the mountains and creek valleys can round out an exciting river journey. The tour ends in Carmacks on the Yukon River where we will part from our canoes and travel with our van via the Klondike Highway back towards Whitehorse.
