Operator testimonials

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR THE TAT

John

We've had the Tatshenshini/Alsek River Expedition on our bucket lists for a long time and finally made the trip! As a whitewater rafting expedition company owner for decades, I am very impressed with this company's attention to operational efficiency and customer experience details. The quality of meals, camping sites and equipment, attention to safety, pace of the trip, contingency plans for weather and water levels, and the overall customer service is first-class. When considering a Tatshenshini/Alsek Expedition, we highly recommend Nahanni and Canadian River Expeditions!
