Guided Teslin River Trips
There's solo mountain free-climbing, hang-gliding, bull-fighting and croc-wrestlin'.
And then there are those "soft" adventures...
The trouble with canoe tripping, ( if there is one ) is that the best times to see wildlife are early in the morning and late in the evening. This coincides perfectly with breaking camp and setting up camp! In other words, at the very times wildlife is most likely to be on the river you are clattering around breaking camp, having a second cup of coffee. And later, at sundown, when you pull in to shore to make camp, you've just missed the second best time to watch that moose wading in the river. This explains why a lot of paddlers are disappointed in the shortage of wildlife sightings. The heavy forest conceals resting wildlife and paddlers are hanging around in camp when critters stroll down to the river for a drink in the evening.
Ahhhhh what to do? Whatever shall we do?
Thankfully, there is a solution! Imagine the luxury of paddling into a well configured camp with a hot meal and a nice fire waiting each night after the sun has gone down! Imagine having no extra weight in the canoe, and no need to break camp in the morning!
This year Nisutlin Outfitting is introducing a new trip, which includes accompaniment by a boat, guide and camp cook. The boat is able to carry your extra gear in addition to everything required to make your trip comfortable and enjoyable, a true holiday, away from the cares of daily life! With no other concerns other than paddling to the next camp, you are free to enjoy the scenery, photograph the wildlife, catch a few fish, or just chat your way on downriver...
We'll be travelling together down the Teslin River which flows from Johnson's crossing at the foot of Teslin Lake and makes it's way to the confluence of the Yukon River at the old port of Hootilinqua where the steamships used to dock on their way up and down the Yukon between Dawson City and Whitehorse. On the way it snakes through a mountainous region with the Big Salmon range on the right. The scenery is fantastic all the way, the river wide and forgiving, and wildlife sightings are inevitable.
Minimum number for the trip is four, with the maximum set at eight. Perhaps your group would like to connect a bit better with a summertime wilderness trip in the Yukon. As the old fishing guide once said, "drop me a line"!
