Tatshenshini Rafting

This was our last scheduled, public expedition (June 2018), and it was a good one.
So good in fact that in 2019 we’re going back with a private group!

11 day + rafting expedition | Yukon & Alaska

Imagine rafting by immense glaciers in the St Elias Mountains—feeling the raw wind on your face and riding the swift melt waters pouring down from the side valleys. This is the Tatshenshini-Alsek valley in Canada’s most spectacular glacier-studded mountain range. As pristine an area as the Pacific Northwest has to offer.

This valley also supports the largest population of grizzly bears in Canada as well as sizable numbers of wolves, moose, wolverines, black bears, Dall sheep, mountain goats, lynx and countless birds. We will explore the valley and surrounding mountains also on foot and in doing so have a better than average chance of observing wildlife.

This rafting expedition is a stand-alone wilderness adventure. Rafting experience is not required. Trip content can be dovetailed to your interests and travel preferences.
