Program #20537RJ
10 Days | 9 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Challenging
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Tackle the legendary Yukon River by canoe, paddling more than 150 miles over eight days as you explore the vast hinterlands of this region. Pitch camp at a new take-out site daily and commune with nature as you prepare and eat your meals outdoors.


Highlights

• Canoe from Whitehorse in the Yukon to Little Salmon Village.
• Paddle through Lake Laberge, a widening of the Yukon River well-known to Klondike Gold Rush prospectors.
• Enjoy good fishing and discover remains of the old Gold Rush days, such as homemade gold dredge and an old steam ship.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.

Activity Notes

Paddling up to 25 miles a day (6-8 hours). Pitch camp, fix meals. Flat Class 1 river. No technical skills are required (prior canoeing experience not needed), but this is a physically strenuous and demanding program.
