Yukon Experience: McQuesten River

Trip Overview

This little-known nugget, just west of Dawson’s famous gold fields and the North Klondike Highway, is a genuine hidden treasure. The McQuesten River is perfect for ambitious beginners who’d like to learn to paddle on a faster, smaller wilderness river. There are no real rapids, but tight bends and sweepers keep things interesting. Rarely visited by paddlers, the McQuesten offers excellent fishing, particularly for arctic grayling, with a good chance of sighting moose, wolves, and bears. We’ll spend five days here, leaving plenty of time for fishing and exploring the hills back-eddies. A day in Dawson City caps off the tour. Explore the legacy of the famous Klondike Gold Rush and live it up in this lively relic of frontier times.
