Tatshenshini River

National Geographic’s, Journeys of a Lifetime, ranks the Tatshenshini River rafting trip as the #1 river raft trip in the world.

Appropriately called the river of glaciers. In over thirty years of wilderness guiding in British Columbia, the Yukon, and Canada’s north, no other location left me in awe as many times as the Tatshenshini and Alsek corridors. Every imaginable superior descriptive for wilderness travel applies. If ever an adventure deserved to be ranked at or near the top of your destination bucket-list, it is this one. Len Webster

“Quickly came to understand why the National Geographic rated the Tat as the best rafting trip in the world. Glaciated mountains around every turn, walking on an actual glacier (big thrill for me), turbulent waters handled adeptly by your rafting guides, meals that blew our minds (lasagna, kabobs, salads, cake from scratch, steak, wine, beer – it was like a 4-star restaurant without a roof, star-filled skies as I never saw before with enough shooting stars to make a wish for all that you can imagine. Wow! And double wow!” Greg & Nancy Cutcheon, Bend, OR.
