Down the Yukon River

During the Klondike gold rush of 1898, thousands of stampeders floated down the Yukon River to get to the gold fields near Dawson City. We followed their way this fall during 12 days as we paddled 600 km from Lake Laberge to Dawson City. With the great weather we had, the mix between blue skies and fall colours was absolutely amazing! In addition we had really nice wildlife encounters, Dall sheep, moose, a grizzly bear and tons of birds!
