Day 1

Arrival in Whitehorse a day before the tour begins.
Individual arrivals in Whitehorse, and transfer to your hotel. After you check in we’ve have planned a group paddle with your fellow group members and a get to know your local Yukon guide. We’ll review our plan on the river and if you need to you will be able to pick up any missing items you may need. Your evening will be free for some local sightseeing and shopping. Then back to your hotel for a good night sleep.

Day 2

We pick you up at 6:00 am from your hotel. Drive to Schwatka lake to meet our local bush pilot. Our pilot flies us over Whitehorse and onto Lake Laberge. A truly unbelievable short but scenic flight. Upon arrival, landing at lower Lake Leberge, where we debark at one of the Yukon oldest gold rush supply towns. If you're lucky we will let you drive the truck that has been there since 1920. After our plane leaves us in the Yukon wilds, we load our gear on our SUP boards and start our amazing journey down the historic Yukon River.


Day 3 & 4

An early rise and departure will have our group ready to encounter the wonderful world on the famous Yukon River ever-changing landscapes, and abundant wildlife will be your companions as we SUP down the Yukon River. Keeping an eye open for wildlife, with potential sightings of a black or grizzly bear, a wolf, moose, caribou, wolverine, mink, and eagles. All day long you will encounter beautiful mountain vistas and relics of the old Gold Rush days as you pass through Hootalinqua, a historic North West Mounted Police outpost and Big Salmon Village at the joining of the Big Salmon and Yukon Rivers. Camping in tents and sharing stories by the campfire under the “midnight sun,” provides the foundation for a truly unique wilderness experience.


Day 5

After our time on the river passing by the salmon fishing camps of the Northern Tutchone peoples, we arrive at the small First Nations village of Carmacks, which was founded by Klondike Gold rush co-discoverer, George Carmacks. We’ll return to Whitehorse by road, a journey of just under 3 hours. Transfer to your post-tour hotel, the airport, or your next tour.
