Our Yukon trips vary in level of difficulty and offer a true expedition style experience.

•Instruction - We practice paddling techniques, discuss river dynamics and scout rapids. Instruction is tailored to individual needs. Feedback is available on request.

• Experiential learning - We welcome you to experiment with new skills and techniques. We offer the guidance and safety support for you to practice new techniques and experiment as you go along. We work on aspects of decision making and judgement calls when appropriate.|

We create a positive and nurturing learning environment for all of our participants.

On more challenging river trips, we bring along a raft to carry heavy gear and act as a safety boat while canoeists are running rapids. Without the heavier gear, canoes are more manoeuverable and ride higher in the water. Another benefit of raft support is that canoeists are welcome to paddle the sections of river they feel comfortable with and ride in the raft at other times. If anyone wants to join the trip but not canoe, they can ride in a raft or join a paddle rafting crew. We also offer rafting-only trips on the Salmon River and in the Yukon.

Active excitement and relaxing enjoyment rolled into one incredible wilderness experience
