Big Salmon River Self-Guided Trip

12 or 19 days Difficulty: Recommended for the experienced canoeist   355 km (220 miles) – 770 km (478 miles)

Step out of your busy world into the exciting waters of the Big Salmon River. Snow-capped mountains surround you as your canoe glides through the pristine water. Starting at Quiet Lake in the beautiful South Canol region of the Yukon, you will admire the vast wilderness surrounding you, which is home to moose, bear, fox, marten, beaver, and many other animals known to the Yukon. A favorite pastime after a day of paddling is casting your hook for “the big catch” of Lake Trout, Northern Pike, or Arctic Grayling.

The Big Salmon River offers more challenges for the intermediate paddler in the form of log jams, sweepers and maneuvering around tight corners. The current is generally moderate but offers many surprises as it twists and turns northwest towards the Yukon River. An exhilarating paddle beneath the “midnight sun”, one will not want to leave the Yukon!

There’s a land where the mountains are nameless,
And the rivers all run God knows where
