Overview

This half day trip is ideal for beginners and families. It begins in downtown Whitehorse, and takes you down the historic Yukon River to the confluence of the Takhini River. Take in the peaceful scenery and keep your eyes peeled for Bald Eagles nesting on the banks of the river. A perfect introduction to canoeing.
After leaving the city behind, the current starts to pick up and the channel begins to widen. Lined by high cut banks, it’s easy to see how the powerful Yukon River has shaped the landscape over the last few thousand years. This history has resulted in a diverse and ecologically rich landscape which provides significant wildlife habitats. Birds, fish, large predators, semi-aquatic mammals, and ungulates all call this area home. As a result, paddlers will have plenty of opportunities for wildlife viewing as they travel downriver. One of the highlights of this tour is passing through an area known for its sizable bald eagle population.
