Flowing through the spectacular Bonnet Plume Range of the northern Yukon, the Snake River is renowned for its remote beauty, excellent hiking and whitewater paddling.
- One of our most remote trips
- The Snake is located in one of the last pristine wilderness regions outside of protected land
- 12 river days
We paddle in rafts over 12 river days along this arctic mountain river for a distance of 300 kilometres (180 miles) with an elevation drop of 800 metres (2400 feet).
We use a combination of floatplane and helicopter to get us to the Snake River. On this world-class rafting adventure, we’ll enjoy a stunning wilderness river that was formerly the exclusive domain of advanced whitewater canoeists.
Paralleling the border of the Yukon and Northwest Territories, close to the Arctic Circle, the Snake River is one of the most remote northern rivers that offers superb mountain hiking and whitewater rafting and canoeing.
Located at the northern end of the Rocky and Mackenzie Mountain Chain, the Peel River Watershed is a spectacularly rugged region defined by the Peel, Ogilvie, Blackstone, Hart, Wind, Snake and Bonnet Plume rivers. One of Canada’s most striking and pristine mountain river watersheds, the Peel is the heart of a great mountain ecosystem with a long cultural history, free-ranging wildlife and a rugged northern beauty. Encompassing over 67,500 square kilometres, the Peel Watershed dwarfs more famous landscapes, such as Banff and Yellowstone national parks–in size, unspoiled splendor and ecological integrity.
Flowing through the spectacular Bonnet Plume Range of the northern Yukon, the Snake River has become renowned for remote beauty, hiking and whitewater canoeing. Dall sheep, caribou, grizzly, wolf and moose are all possibilities for excellent wildlife viewing, with panoramic vistas guaranteed.
Travelling from the alpine Duo Lakes to the confluence with the Peel River, the level of skill required on our Snake River raft expedition is beginner. (canoeists must be skilled whitewater paddlers)
