Your skills and confidence will soar. Catch every eddy and surf every wave. The Lapie River is the best river in the Yukon for learning whitewater. We have many options of runs choose on the Lapie, Ross and Ketza Rivers as well as local lakes. Each course is tailored to the class to insure optimal learning. We have been using this location for more 20 years and know it very well. We have many repeat customers for this course and it’s more of an experience than a course.

Course runs over 4 full days based out of the Ross River area. We provide all canoe equipment, local transport, video analysis and instruction. Not included: camping fees, food or transportation to the Lapie.

Ideal course for preparing for a Peel Watershed Trip or other Canoe expedition.
