Let Ruby Range Adventure guide you during your next Yukon wilderness expedition, and help you discover the most pristine and remote corners of the Canadian Great North. What awaits you? Lakes and narrow creeks, fast water and tight bends, secret waterways… Unexplored trails to emerald alpine lakes, where the water is clear and cold and teeming with fish and beavers.
Exciting treks and backpacking in the middle of the vast tundra, surrounded by mountains. And, at the end of a full day, wilderness camping under midnight sun skies, with wildlife all around you.
If you seek a land expedition in regions visited by rare few, our expert-level hiking trips will take you off the beaten path. Here, we particularly recommend our Explore Remote Valleys backpacking trek if you seek the true wild North. The tour begins with a helicopter flight into the heart of the Tombstone Territorial Park, where you’ll establish a base camp at a high and seldom-visited alpine lake. This tour is also designed to pair perfectly with our canoe-camping Secret Waterways tour mentioned below.
Of course, Yukon’s incredible nature offers not only wild, unexplored land, but also a myriad of river-paddling possibilities, many of which are remote and rarely explored. For a beginner’s and intermediate canoeing experience without expert-level paddling knowledge, we recommend looking at our Spirit of the Yukon – Pelly River tour and the Klondiker route on Big Salmon River. Both are remote and only see a handful of paddlers each year – perfect for a calm wilderness adventure.
If you seek a larger thrill, explore our canoe tours based around the Peel River Watershed – a region of over 43,000 square kilometres of pristine and roadless subarctic cordillera that is home to healthy populations of Dall sheep, caribou, moose, grizzlies, wolves, and peregrine falcons.
A short float plane ride (included) takes you to the otherwise inaccessible waterways. Our Wind River and Secret Waterways guided canoe tours both require intermediate-level paddling and wilderness skills once the floatplane drops us off.
We will be paddling through the traditional hunting and trapping territories of First Nations, whose ancestors ran the same rapids in moose skin boats sealed with spruce pitch. Along the way, narrow bends will offer excellent opportunities to see wildlife along the banks and eddies, and we will find excellent fishing spots for those interested.
Expert-level wildmen / wildwomen will relish the challenges offered in our Best Whitewater Rivers tour and the Last Frontier Canoe Route. An experienced guide will lead you down exciting rivers with frequent rapids up to class III and isolated stretches of class IV and V whitewaters.
These canoe expeditions into the heart of the Yukon wilderness will expose you to some of the most pristine mountains and offer excellent hiking trips and relaxing hot springs along the way.
