Snake River Trip

The Snake River is a true Yukon classic river nestled amongst the alpine valleys of the Peel watershed. Starting in the alpine of Duo Lakes this river winds its way through open mountain scenery, intimate canyons, and braided channels before entering the Peel River. The Snake offers unlimited possibilities for hiking in its upper sections with opportunities to see wildlife such as moose, sheep, bear, and more. Those looking for a trip with fun intermediate paddling, excellent hiking, and remote northern wilderness will find the Snake River a perfect match.

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.
