Trips & Weekend Events


Through out the summer, YCKC leads both day trips and paddling weekend events for our members. These trips are designed as "friends leading friends" and aims to create a space for paddlers to meet and share their love of the river. These vary in skill level, watercraft and location.


NEXT Day Trip: Takhini River  - May 25

Where: Takhini River from the River Campground to Mendenhall Landing (class I/II)

Meeting at Rest Stop on the Alaska Highway near the North Klondike (Whitehorse) @ 8:30AM. We will be on the river for about for hours, plus a couple of driving hours so bring enough snacks!

Registration Form coming soon!

A friendly reminder that club trips are not guided trips but in the spirit of friends leading friends and that all participants must have a current YCKC membership & sign a waiver.
