Canoe Trip in the Yukon on Big Salmon River

15 day guided wilderness canoe trip on the Big Salmon River, wildlife viewings from the seat of your canoe. the crackle of the campfire and learning new outdoor skills await you. Two Lakes give ample time to get acquainted with the new element. For the next 11 days we follow the path of the Big Salmon River. Over time we get used to the narrow river, tight bends and sometimes quick manoeuvrers. Sweepers and faster water alternates with more sedate sections. Seasoned paddlers and ambitious beginners alike will be inspired by this untouched wilderness river.

As we float downstream we will be on the watch for moose and eagles. Beaver lodges are a common sight, King Salmon are coming up the river to spawn and swim right by the canoes.
The last three days we float down the mighty Yukon River and get a glimpse of the gold rush days.
Your guide will be able to explain lots about wildlife, plants and traditional lifestyle in the wilderness.

Trip date : 16.8. - 30.8. 2020

Another fabulous tour from Ross River to Pelly Crossing. Highlight along the river was taking turns in spotting wildlife like: pikes, salmon, blackbear, eagle, wolf, porcupine, moose… Our tour guide Rainer's skilful leadership was proved once again in the drive, knowledge and friendliness with which he approached the tasks in hand and his tour members. During our tour through the wildernis we were provided with a varied range of foods, to the delight of the group, clearly a standard typical of Adventure Tours. Excellent equipment and punctual transfers round up the service. Rainer's sensitive awareness for the needs of the group supported a convivial atmosphere and team spirit. On the backdrop of the unparalleled beauty of the Yukon Territory this trip served to bring out good vibes in everyone. Thank you Rainer.

We trusted Adventure Tours Yukon Wild already 2009 as we did our 14 day self-guided Canoe tour on the Big Salmon River in the Yukon. It was out of question using Adventure Tours Yukon Wild for our self-guided Wind River Tour again. The rented equipment is top shelf and in very good condition. The organization, knowledge and flexibility from Rainer and his team in unbeatable. I only can speak for self-guided tours but I can highly recommend Adventure Tours Yukon Wild for their service. Anytime again.

Thank you for the perfekt organisation. The transport Whitehorse to Mayo and return was very entertaining. Rainer gave us helpful tips for our trip. The bookung of the fly in and fly out worked very well. The nature, mountains and the clear water was fantastic. Mountain hiking is highly recommended due to the great view. We saw moose, caribou, dall sheep, wolf and a black bear during our trip. Fly-fishing was excellent for artic greyling. Rainer is very profesional and you can trust him. He has a lot of expierience on many rivers in the Yukon area.
