Description

Put-in: Minto   Take-out: Dawson City We wanted to create a trip that embodied all that one envisions when one thinks of the Yukon. We think that our Yukon River canoe trip from Minto to Dawson City meets that goal. We selected Minto as a starting point because it is here that the Yukon River leaves its parallel course with the RV and tour bus studded Klondike Highway, and enters the remoteness and serenity of Yukon’s wilderness. The fast current of the Yukon River will transport us deep into a glaciated landscape of low hills, granite rock, high sandy cliffs, and spruce forest. Along the route chances are very good that we will see an assortment of wildlife from Dahl sheep to bears. Isolated campsites, many of which are located on islands in the Yukon River, offer a solitude that one must experience to understand.
