One Day Upper Tatshenshini Rafting
Our Tatshenshini Day Trip is a world-class guided rafting excursion through gorgeous alpine scenery and exciting class 3 and 4 whitewater rapids.
Thanks to our guides’ expertise and the river’s versatility, our Tat Day trip is open to all ages and ability levels and the excitement level is catered to whoever is in the boat.
Whether you are looking for a rowdy, high-adrenaline day with a group of friends or a calmer day with young kids, the Tatshenshini has it all.
The trip departs from our camp on the Blanchard River at 10:30am and ends around 4pm. The meeting location for the trip is at our camp on the Haines Highway, a 2.5-3-hour drive from Whitehorse – an extremely scenic drive in itself.
We provide wetsuits, paddling gear, lunch, and a bus shuttle back to your vehicle at the end of the trip. Guests should bring wool socks, thermal wool, fleece or polypro base clothing layers, and a change of clothing for the end of the trip.

Tatshenshini Day Trip Meeting Location
“One of the best ways to spend a summer day in Yukon.”
Rafted the Tatshenshini River day trip. The guides were amazing, lunch was tasty, the wetsuit kept me warm, and the rafts were comfortable. We laughed and squealed through the rapids and all of the play between rafters. We flipped, we swam, we laughed. A really good time was had by all! Now to raft the Tutshi River.
