Up North Adventures is an award-winning adventure travel outfitter based in downtown Whitehorse, Yukon. We have been helping people from all over the world experience one of the most unique places on Earth since 1991! Our complete selection of trips and tours are designed to help you experience and enjoy the Yukon year round.

Overview

Join us for a full day on the beautiful and historic Yukon River where we will recount tales from the Gold Rush era, while immersing ourselves in the pristine Yukon wilderness. The day will begin when we pick you up from your downtown accommodation and drive a short distance to our put-in at Marsh Lake.
We will stop at the archaeological site of Canyon City, where the stampeders would wait to be taken through Miles Canyon and the Whitehorse rapids while their goods were taken down the tramline. The day ends after we paddle through the beautiful basalt canyon to our take-out point at Schwatka Lake. Recommended for canoeists with at least some experience.
