Tatshenshini River White Water Rafting
A unique place on earth, River Tatshenshini is probably the wildest river in Canada. Along with the sight of its pristine wilderness, a float on the river will give you a panoramic view of the mountains.
Tatshenshini originates in the southwest part of Yukon, traveling south and west through British Columbia and moving on to Alaska. Going a long way, the river meets at the Dry Bay on the Gulf of Alaska. After sometimes, the river disappears in a narrow canyon and reappears by opening into U-shaped valley. Down the valley, the river widens and slowly passes through the lands of glaciers where you can come across several glaciers calving large blocks of ice into the river.
At the Alsek Bay, the river meets with River Alsek, offering you an outstanding view of the majestic peak in Glacier National Peak, Mount Fairweather. Home to abundant wildlife and outstanding natural beauty, the river passes through high mountains and an iceberg dotted lake. For rafters, the river sports Class II and III rapids, giving them ample scope to float along the river and take a look at the vast stretches of wildflowers on the river banks.
Well, in addition to the electrifying rafting experience, you must wonder what else can give you additional pleasure while on a rafting expedition down the Tatshenshini! In that case, you will be lucky enough to get a glimpse of grizzly roaming freely, spawning salmon and bald eagles flying high. You can even get the incredible views of the wolves and bears walking along the banks of the river.
Your expedition on this river can conclude by going on a fishing experience, along with watching a moose travel by. The pristine wilderness, the majestic glaciers, the unsurpassed forests and the snowy peaks altogether will surely make your expedition a truly memorable one.
