How so?
Imagine if you could unplug and relax in “butt-frig-nowhere”, giving yourself a chance to just BE, to experience LIFE in simple moments, and go on an ADVENTURE so bonkers you’ll need to wear both your crash helmet and diapers! Surrounded by nature, riding the current of the Yukon River and letting out the biggest and loudest laugh you ever had. To many people, a Yukon River canoe trip is not only awesomely adventurous but also is revered as a spiritual rite of passage.

If you want to learn to love yourself better, be more effective at home and in your career, and ultimately have the time of your life, this type Yukon River canoe trip is for you. It's more than a regular and typical Yukon wilderness tour. We use the wonderment of the Yukon River with workings of canoe trip adventure with the wisdom of the Laughing Buddha, gourmet wilderness cooking, collective knowledge of the group and the meaningfulness of honouring the relationship(s) with self and others. We intentionally create incredible experiences that reflect the goodness of those who attend.
