“Great day on the river”
Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

We are intermediate paddlers, but wanted a guided day on the river as we kayak on lakes. We were set up with Tim with fewer than 24 hours notice and had a grand day. He gave us paddling tips, provided a good lunch, and scared off the bear at Canyon City ( thanks, Tim)! The pace was perfect...we had time to enjoy the scenery and geology......and appreciated Tim's guidance going through Miles Canyon. An excellent day.

“Great day of canoeing”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

We rented canoes at Up North Adventures for our afternoon of canoeing. Mark checked us in and got everything ready for us. He got us over to the Yukon River and launched us. The weather was perfect - blue sky, 26C, nice breeze, and good current. We gently sailed down the Yukon to the Tahkini River, where Mark was waiting to pick us up and transport us back to Whitehorse. Along the way we saw many Bald Eagles - juveniles and mature birds. Spectacular!
Great day - great company!

“Incredibly Helpful”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Kalin and his team went out of there way to help us prepare for the Yukon River Quest. They provided a lot of local knowledge and advice and this helped take some of the unknowns out of the daunting task that was ahead of us. They even gave us a ride to the registration and a ride back to my B&B as i had forgotten my ID. Can't recommend these guys enough and looking forward to getting back to Whitehorse soon. Definitely check them out, all the staff are super helpful and friendly.

They were more than wiling to go above and beyond to help us in anyway they could. We saw lots of other really happy customers and we will definitely be back!
