First, the trip was great, if physically demanding. BUT we debated how/what to pack even after reconciling the two packing lists. Here are our suggestions on packing tips: FOOTWEAR: The guides all wore full calf or mid-calf rubber boots (NOT neoprene booties or sox) . We bought some mid-calf rubber boots last minute and were very glad that we did (and sorry that we bought neoprene pre-trip). Ideal camp footgear was running shoes AND either crocs or flip-flops (these are good for wading into the river ankle deep to do some sponge baths). [Crocs might also double as camp shoes.] We were told to NOT bring personal water filters (left ours with our extra luggage) but good water bottles are a must. We also struggled with how to deal with day packs in the canoe. One of us put a garbage bag inside the day pack, the other used a 25 liter dry sack. Both methods worked fine in rain and normal splashing (but we never tipped so there was no acid test). HIKING: There was NO hiking on the canoe trip hence no need for hiking boots or trekking poles. Weather: Check both the Dawson City and the Whitehorse forecasts for temperature ranges (you will be much closer to Dawson City than Whitehorse). FINALLY, extra (non-canoe trip) luggage WILL be transported from Whitehorse to Dawson City so you will be re-united with clean gear.
