Alsek River Trip

The Alsek River flows southward from its source at the confluence of the Dezadeash and Kaskawulsh Rivers, through large glaciated valleys of the St. Elias Mountains. Rugged glacial valleys are home for wild populations of grizzly bear and mountain goat. Arctic plant life clings to the light glaciated soils. Sand dunes and glacial till provide a contrasting environment for the diverse and fragile vegetation found here.

Breathtaking vistas of large valley glaciers such as the Lowell and Fisher offer the river visitor glimpses of the heart of Kluane.

“An 11-day rafting adventured with Tatshenshini Expediting is Fantastic”

My wife and I and some friends experienced an awesome wilderness adventure through the skilled guiding service provided by Tatshenshini Expediting out of Whitehorse. The superlatives apply to first the scenery but also to the adventure in a pristine environment of unequaled beauty, the food, the people, the entire absorbing experience.
