Guided Multi-Day Rafting & Paddling Expeditions in Northern Canada and Alaska

Since 1972, we’ve been guiding expeditions on 20 of Canada and Alaska’s top rivers—wilderness icons known to adventure travellers as some of the best canoeing and rafting in the world.

The legendary Nahanni River  is at the top of many a traveller’s bucket list and is often the first experience that brings our guests to the north, but once they learn of the other world class northern destinations they return many times over, always rewarded.

Whether you enjoy the excitement and comfort of expedition rafting, a challenging canoe adventure or the solitude and relaxation of flat water, you’ll come home with stories that will last a lifetime. From sturdy, comfortable tents, to state of the art gear; from fresh baked goods and fruit at breakfast, to that delicious lasagna accompanied by fresh produce at dinner, our adventure vacations deliver quality from start to finish every time.
