Expedition raft trip on the Firth River in Ivvavik National Park in the Yukon


Float through one of the most remote areas in Canada on the expedition raft trip on the Firth River in northern Yukon.  Located at the northwestern tip of the Yukon is Ivvavik National Park, one of the most isolated national parks in the world. Issuing from the British Mountains of the Brooks Range, the wild and remote Firth River flows through the centre of this park to the Beaufort Sea.  As your guide maneuvers the raft, you will have lots of time to take in the sights and fully enjoy this Arctic paradise.

Wildlife which includes muskox, caribou, wolves and eagles are enhanced by the beauitful Arctic plant life on a variety of day hikes.  Ivvavik National Park is the first national park in Canada created as the result of a First Nations land claim agreement.  You travel by raft on this high arctic tundra river from the British Mountains on the border of Alaska and the Yukon through Ivvavik National Park to Nunaluk Spit in the Beaufort Sea near Herschel Island. Rafting over 11 river days, you journey 150 kilometres (94 miles) with an approximate elevation drop of 460 metres (1500 feet).
