Expedition raft trip on the Alsek River in the Yukon


Discover the beauty of the Yukon on this expedition raft trip down the scenic Alsek River. The Alsek River flows southward from its source at the confluence of the Dezadeash and Kaskawulsh Rivers, through large glaciated valleys of the St. Elias Mountains. Rugged glacial valleys are home for wild populations of grizzly bear and mountain goat. Arctic plant life clings to the light glaciated soils. Sand dunes and glacial till provide a contrasting environment for the diverse and fragile vegetation found here. Breathtaking vistas of large valley glaciers such as the Lowell and Fisher offer the river visitor glimpses of the heart of Kluane. The beauty is tempered by swift currents, standing waves and rapids.

The six-day trip ends at Turnback Canyon which was created by the immense Tweedsmuir glacier. You paddle through a gorge similar to that of the Grand Canyon with some large Grade IV rapids.  The four-day trip ends at Lowell Lake, thus avoiding the whitewater sections of the Alsek River.  The trips are run to cater to the speed of the group and preferences for hiking, photography and layover days.
