- Yukon River - Whitehorse to Takhini - 15 miles

C2 - Yukon River - Miles Canyon - Schwatka Lake - 5 miles
- $75. per person.
We transport you to and from this one. The starting point
is approximately one mile upstream of the famous Miles
Canyon of the Yukon River. The Whitehorse Rapids that once
made the run extremely dangerous for any kind of
watercraft were tamed with the building of the power dam
in Schwatka Lake, which is your destination. The stark
rock walls and the narrow fast water of the canyon make
for an exciting albeit short run into Schwatka Lake. A
pick up at the north end of the lake is included in your
trip. The trip may be extended to last all day. Pack a
lunch and stay a while.
C3 - Yukon River - Whitehorse to Lake Laberge - 30
miles - $95. per person.
Spend the day canoeing the 30 miles from downtown
Whitehorse to world famous Lake Laberge. That's the place

poem "The Cremation of Sam McGee". To prevent
the possibilities of becoming weather bound you stop just
short of the entry into the lake. Trip includes pick up.
Morning departures only. Duration 4 to 6 hours.
No C4 - Yukon
River - Marsh Lake to Schwatka Lake - 30 miles -

C5 - Chadburn Lakes - canoe - fishing - 1 day - $90.00
This is an unguided trip. We transport you and your canoe
to Chadburn Lake - a short distance from downtown
Whitehorse. This is a stocked lake and you can spend the
day fishing for Lake trout or simply enjoying the scenery
and the paddling around the lake. A great place to relax.

you back to downtown Whitehorse. Pack a lunch and stay
No. C6 - Snafu Lake Chain - canoe or kayak - 3 days / 2
nights $245. per person.
A great way to spend a few days in the Yukon wilderness.
Camp out at the Government campground at Snafu Lake. Spend
the days paddling and fishing the lake for Lake trout,
Northern pike and Arctic grayling. Go ahead, cook the
catch! Anyone that hasn't tasted fresh-caught - pan-fried
grayling is missing something. This trip can be extended
to as many days as you like.
C7 - Hidden Lake - canoe or kayak - 1 day - fishing.
$90.00 per person.
Another favorite. One of the few areas that is stocked
with Rainbow trout. The lake is situated just outside of
Whitehorse. There is no road into the lake and a short 5
min carry of your canoe and gear is required. The effort
is worth it as the rewards can be a fresh Rainbow up to
2-1/2 - 3 lbs. and of course a relaxing full day of an
intimate wilderness experience. Try it, you'll love it.
