Stikine River

 The Stikine River

  • One of the most diverse and dramatic canoeable rivers on the West Coast of the continent
  • Widely known as one of the last genuine wild rivers in B.C.
  •  Spatsizi is a Tahltan word, which means “land of the red goat”

Tuaton Lake in the Spatsizi Plateau is the birthplace of the Stikine. Nearly 60 tributaries swell the river as it reaches the edge of the plateau. Through an abrupt gash, the Stikine drops 300 metres (930 feet) into a narrow chasm – the Grand Canyon of the Stikine. Negotiated by only a handful of paddlers to date, the canyon home to about 400 mountain goats, whose white coats take on a red color from the iron oxide dust in the rock.
