Overview

The Wind River is known for its remarkably-clear, aquamarine water. It has a more relaxed route than other rivers in the Peel Watershed, and this trip explores two distinct sub-Arctic topographies. The Wind River section flows over cobblestone shoals and sand bars, and winds through an alpine valley - with meadows along the riverbank and the mountains beyond. The paddling is fun, the scenery is exceptional, and the pace is easygoing.
There is time to explore the area in a series of side hikes, and straightforward access to the mountains. At the end of the Wind River we enter the Peel River Valley. We'll paddle a wide-open valley to the mouth of the Bonnet Plume River. Just below is the extraordinary Peel Canyon. Sheer walls, big waves, lots of current, and exceptional birding make this a highlight. The final run to our take-out point goes past shale cliffs, gravel escarpments, and big islands. Great campsites and a steady current make for a very pleasant finish to the expedition. The Wind River trip is a good choice for those with basic whitewater skills, some canoe camping experience, and reasonable fitness levels. This would be a good choice for your first northern canoeing expedition. A novice, paired with a more experienced paddler, could do this trip.
