These day trips of whitewater rafting the Tatshenshini River are a must do on your next visit to the Yukon. These one day trips on the upper canyon of the Tatshenshini River are run from June through to mid to late August. This is an extremely exciting paddle trip (Grade II to IV) and is very popular with both locals and visitors. The upper Tatshenshini is located on the Haines Road, a 2.5 - 3 hour ride from Whitehorse - an extremely scenic drive in itself.
The trip can be done in one day, leaving Whitehorse by 7:45 a.m. and returning to Whitehorse by approximately 7:30 p.m. Your guides do not provide transportation to the river, but do provide a courtesy shuttle from the end of the trip back to your vehicle at the put-in. Vehicle rentals and a map to the river location can be arranged in Whitehorse.
