Yukon River

This section of the fabled Yukon River  includes scenic Lake Labarge,  the fast flowing  Thirty Mile section, and a 3 day stretch from its confluence with the Teslin River to the village of Little Salmon.   The Yukon River has been a major waterway since the territory was first occupied by First Nations  peoples, and more recently was the route to the Klondike Goldfields. Traveled by steam-powered riverboats in the  early 20th century, the river continues to draw river lovers from around the world,  some traveling all the way from her headwaters south of Whitehorse for 2500 kms through Alaska to the Bering Sea. Relics of earlier days are in frequent evidence along our route  and will give us a  sense of traveling through time as we head northwards towards the land of the midnight sun.
