Are you wanting to push your Solo Whitewater Canoeing skills? This course is taught in fully outfitted solo whitewater canoes designed for turning and playing in whitewater. Your solo skill and confidence will grow. Taught will be on Yukon’s premier Canoe Instructing River – the Lapie River. We base camp for 4 days and run various sections of the Lapie, Ketza and Ross Rivers. We provide learning challenges appropriate for your skill level.
