Paddle the Tatshenshini River on this wilderness raft trip in the Yukon. Carving its way through the St. Elias Range, the Tatshenshini River has gained a reputation as one of the best rafting trips in the world. These raft trips start at Dalton Post bordering Kluane National Park in the southwest Yukon. The canyon run of the first day gradually gives way to widening panoramic views of the 15,000 foot-high-peaks and glacier-covered valleys.
The long hours of daylight and the flexibility built into these trips allows time for side hikes or an extra day at iceberg-filled Alsek Lake. Your guides do not follow a specific schedule, but prefer to run the trips catering to the speed of the group and preferences for hiking, photography or layover days. The trip ends in Dry Bay, Alaska and the scenery along the way is simply overwhelming.
These trips are run as paddle trips. This means that you are not simply rowed down the river by a guide, but you are actively participating in the maneuvering and running of the raft. Over the years many clients commented that their trip was made so much more enjoyable by being active paddling participants. You will surely come away from this trip with a real sense of accomplishment.
