Upper Takhini River

One of our favourite canoeing day trips in the Yukon. The upper Takhini river is located in the Takhini Valley about one hour away from Haines Junction (direction Whitehorse) and starts out from Kusawa Lake. Connect with nature and enjoy the quiet, while you might spot some wild horse, elk, moose, wolfs, lynx, porcupine, beavers, otters bold and golden eagle, back and grizzly bears and many more wildlife.

We will leave from Mount Logan Lodge or meet you at the starting point of our tour. Starting point of our beautiful canoeing tour is at the start of the Takhini River at Kusawa Lake. The river is relatively calm as it winds its way down the valley. There is also an opportunity for some fun, running the rapids called the jaws of death (the locals call them the gums of death as it is really not that dangerous). Of course you dont have to go all that crazy. Optional: we carry the canoe around. The tour ends at Mendalhall Landing.
