  • Day Trip
  • Pickup Service
  • 408 hr

With our training day on a river near Whitehopse on the first day, everybody is well prepared to tackle tight bends in swift current of the Wind River. We want tp prepare you, so you can enjoy the trip and get a spectacular short trip as a bonus. Being close to the arctic circle, it never gets dark in the summer. That allows for ample time to explore. On layover days we follow small streams up the valleys to canyons and waterfalls, or hike up mountain ridges to spectacular viewpoints . Often, the Wind braids substantially into many channels, that makes route finding interesting. Some tight corners, enlivened with sweepers add spice to it. The Peel River is impressive with steep canyon walls, almost all the way down to the pick up point. In the Lower Peel Canyon the river becomes extremely narrow and the sedimentary rock formations are one of the highlights of the trip.
