Nisutlin River Self-Guided Trip

5, 7, or 16 days   Difficulty: Beginner   137 km (85 miles) – 555 km (345 miles)

The Nisutlin River is one of the few south-flowing rivers in the Yukon River watershed, beginning in the Pelly Mountains and flowing southeast towards the Village of Teslin. The Nisutlin River is gentle flowing and picturesque as you paddle through the Yukon’s amazing landscape! This region with its low wetlands is a summer home for many species of migratory birds and waterfowl and is known for its substantial moose population. Although an ideal trip for less experienced outdoor enthusiasts, everyone from beginner to expert will enjoy this river.

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