We enjoyed 12 days of soul-enriching experience on the Nahanni River. Our family of three is grateful to our amazing, multi-talented guides - Nils, Ian and Hans - for their precision, expertise and care. Each of these congenial and capable young men kept us active, safe, entertained and well-fed. In fact, the food they prepared was superb! The grandeur of this remote and magnificent Canadian landscape is unforgettable. We highly recommend the trip run by Nahanni River Adventures to anyone of any level of wilderness skill. You will be richly rewarded.

We've had the Tatshenshini/Alsek River Expedition on our bucket lists for a long time and finally made the trip! As a whitewater rafting expedition company owner for decades, I am very impressed with this company's attention to operational efficiency and customer experience details. The quality of meals, camping sites and equipment, attention to safety, pace of the trip, contingency plans for weather and water levels, and the overall customer service is first-class. When considering an Tatshenshini/Alsek Expedition, we highly recommend Nahanni & Canadian River Expeditions!
An amazing experience with a fantastic group of people and incredible scenery and environment. We come from New Zealand so are used to friendly people and beautiful scenery but the trip down the Alsek river with these guys and girls took these things to a new level. Camping next to glacial lakes full of icebergs was a definite highlight. And then there's the food - incredible!! Overall we highly recommend this trip as an amazing once in a lifetime experience.
I did the Alsek River Trip with this outfitter in the summer of 2018. It was everything I expected and more. The staff were friendly, extremely knowledgeable about the river, the geology, glaciers, biology and human history of the area. I loved the stories around the campfire at night about running rivers and the local knowledge which were always told with a sense of humor and a connection to their love for the Yukon. The scenery was over the top, really it was...hard to put into words. Every time I thought the views could not get better, we would round a bend in the river and see something else just as spectacular. And this is coming from an Alaskan who has worked in the woods most my career. The helicopter ride over Turnback Canyon was unique to this trip, offering a incredible view of the glacier and the Yukon. The crew's attention to safety in a remote area was also 5 star. I was well fed and well taken care of. I plan on going on at least one more trip with this group.
This is an outstanding and remarkable company. I went on their Alsek River trip. The equipment was excellent and guides where even better. The food was outstanding. It was well organized and all my needs (and endless anoying questions) where addressed. I cannot recommend them enough. This is coming from an ex-river guide.
