Takhini River Canoe Trip


Connect with Nature and savor the peace and quiet while paddling the Takhini River

The Takhini River is starting out of Kusawa Lake and empties into the Yukon River. It is a easy to paddle water with incredible views along the way. Wildlife like Moose, Bear, Elk, Wolf, Coyote  and more call the shores of the Takhini River their home and you might even spot some Otters in the water.  The Ibex Valley is also home to many species of birds and it will be guaranteed to see eagles on the way.

Our adventure will start right at Muktuk where you will spend your first night to get acquainted with our lifestyle, meet our doggies and getting all ready and set up for your upcoming paddling trip.

After the first night at the lodge we will drive to Kusawa Lake,Get all our gear in the canoes and hit the water.  On the lake we will practice some basics of canoeing or just get back into things if you already experienced and then start of down stream to the Takhini. For the thrill seekers and experienced canoers we can paddle through the rapids, for the less experience we will portage that very short stretch of the river.

We will spend 3 nights along the shores of the Takhini where we will set up our camp and enjoy nice home cooked meals around the fire, and of course there will be one or the other dogs joining our company on this trip.

On day 4 we will be back at Muktuk where you will have another night at the lodge to share your adventures.
