Canoe Rental - Up North Adventures Whitehorse Reviews
Canoe Rental for the trip down the Yukon River Apr 23, 2008
We rented a 20 foot canoe (we wanted a big one, since we were NOT traveling light) from these people for our 400+ mile canoe trip down the Yukon River, from Whitehorse to Dawson City, in July of 2007. They were great people to deal with. They took our reservation for a canoe, then provided the canoe and lots of information about what to expect on our river trip.
On your departure day, they use a "dolly" to bring the canoe and other rental gear from their shop to the side of the river. They helped us get our vehicle parked and our return to the river bank to launch our trip. The return of the canoe and rental equipment from Dawson City to Whitehorse is included in the fee. When you get to Dawson City, just notify the Up North Adventures representative & your rental canoe (which you have become very dependent on and fond of!) will be returned to its home in Whitehorse.
Their retail shop has just about anything you'd want for your trip, and they rent a lot of stuff too. They are in a very central location, with a very pleasant and helpful staff.
