Welcome to Nisutlin Outfitting!
your stepping stone to wild Yukon wilderness adventure!
"What ever gave you
To drive a thousand
miles of dusty road
And what ever gave
you the feeling
To come up here to
the land of gold ..."
Song written 1978 by Yukon musicians Jim Vautour and Manfred Janssen
Canada's Yukon has often been painted as a harsh, rugged, unforgiving land, a place of great danger where tough men and women have come and hammered out a life for themselves using only the few possessions they brought with them and what their own hands formed along the way, their very lives constantly at risk.
Now here's the way I've found it to be: A gentle land blessed with abundant wildlife and resources. The stunningly beautiful scenery is an added bonus!
Regardless of where you call home, getting the benefit of a little local knowledge makes a whole lot of sense. Little bits of information such as what lure to use at what spot at what time of the year, or where the best camping and hiking or berry-picking areas can be found along the river you're paddling can improve the quality of the time you've allowed for your vacation. After all, it generally takes thousands of dollars and a substantial sacrifice of time to simply arrive in the Yukon. The comparatively small cost of a fishing trip or a day or a week of paddling will not be wasted. In fact, a two week paddle trip is a tremendous bargain compared to spending those same two weeks in a hotel!
That first night, nestled up against a spruce tree on a bank overlooking the river, sore, tired muscles from paddling all day, soaking up the warmth of the campfire while sipping river-tea, you're going to realize what a great decision you have made. And the memories will last a lifetime! At the very least, that is my wish for you and sums up the purpose of Nisutlin Outfitting, helping you get closer to the real Yukon wilderness you came to see. Exciting fishing opportunities truly abound here too. We know where they live!
So if it tickles your fancy, take advantage of some local knowledge and build on it. After all, Its in both of our interests that you have the time of your life!
