Join our fully certified Instructors for the lessons of a lifetime. We offer Wilderness First Aid Training in the Spring and Fall, and Canoe and Kayak Lessons in the summer. Our courses help you build the skills and confidence you require for safe back country travel, enabling you to explore the Yukon on your own! Feel free to contact us for private lessons or custom courses.
Kayaking truly is a sport that anyone can enjoy! Our professional Instructors will get you started on the right foot with our Intro to Kayak, Intro to Kayak Rescue and Advanced Rescue Evening Programs. We pride ourselves on being safe, knowledgeable and helpful to make sure you are happy, comfortable, and ready to explore the beautiful world of kayaking. Plan to join us this year to find out why kayaking is one of the fastest growing water sports around!
Canoeing is often referred to as “art” as much as “sport”. It is a very traditional way to explore the lakes and rivers around us. Canoes are very versatile craft and with some training can be used to explore incredibly magical places. Whether you are planning a trip or just want to “brush up” on some techniques, consider joining our top notch Instructors for a ½ day or full day course. We’ll put you on the fast track to paddling!
Knowing what to do if things go wrong in the back country is an essential skill for anyone that wants to spend time in the outdoors. We offer 4 day (WAFA) and 8 day (WFR) certification courses for trip leaders, guides, instructors and private boaters who want to make sure they are properly prepared for any scenario. Up North Adventures is proud to offer Wilderness First Aid Courses from industry leader Wilderness Medical Associates. Please feel free to contact us for our course schedule.
