The Teslin River flows from Teslin Lake to the confluence of the Yukon River at Hootalinqua, the historic Northwest Mounted Police station and Telegraph post. Beautiful mountain views surround us as we flow down the river. Camping in tents and eating by the campfire while under the “midnight sun” provides the foundation for a truly unique wilderness experience. Historic highlights include a visit to the ancient First Nations encampment of Big Salmon Village at the confluence of the Big Salmon and Yukon Rivers, and Cyr’s Dredge, a mining relic from the 1898 Yukon Gold Rush. The Teslin River is a scenic and historic route, offers excellent fishing, wildlife viewing opportunities, and leaves you with unforgettable memories. This trip is suitable for all levels of paddler.
