Raft one of the wildest and most visually spectacular rivers in North America on this expedition rafting trip on the Tatshenshini River. The Tatshenshini River flows through the heart of the largest bio-preserve in the world. Your guide will do most of the work on this exciting raft trip that crosses through two countries.
Your raft trip begins in the Yukon, near Kluane National Park and as you follow the river south you will pass into British Columbia and eventually over the border into Alaska. This trip is a great way to see this beautiful area of North America and the trip allows lots of time for hiking, photography and wildlife watching. Truly an international journey of unparalleled beauty.
Recently protected by the establishment of Tatshenshini Provinicial Park, the river flows past tall mountains, vast glaciers and an iceberg dotted lake. Bald eagles abound, grizzlies feed on spawning salmon and if you are lucky, you may catch a glimpse of the rare blue glacier bear.
You raft from the Klukshu River, a Coast Range river at Dalton Post to Dry Bay, at the Gulf of Alaska along a 255-kilometre (160 mile) route with an elevation drop of 550 metres (1800 feet). Float through three wilderness parks, traverse Yukon, BC and cross the international boundary into Alaska, through the land that is called Tatshenshini wilderness.
