Yukon River Tours

Yukon River
The Yukon River is a winding, smooth, fast waterway that impresses with its power and speed. Known as the “River of Gold,” the Yukon was the route to gold during the 1898 Klondike Gold Rush. The source of the river is located in British Columbia and the waterway stretches across the Yukon Territory and into Alaska before emptying into the Bering Sea. In total the Yukon River crosses nearly 2,000 miles--more than 3,000 kilometers.

The river winds through many historic sites and visitors will spot remnants of abandoned cabins and sternwheelers along the way. At the Fort Selkirk historic site, visitors will learn of the Yukon’s trading and exploration history. At the Thirty Mile section of the river, what was once the most treacherous stretch is now a designated Canadian Heritage River and the perfect spot for a peaceful paddle. Rent canoes or kayaks from one of the many suppliers located along the riverbanks and enjoy a quiet and remote journey with plenty of history, wildlife and scenery.
