Operator testimonials

Unforgettable, magical experience


We were a party of 7 who did the "Fly & Enjoy" 6-day canoe trip down the Yukon River from Whitehorse to Carmacks. It was an unforgettable, magical experience in the remote wilderness, miles from nowhere. The float plane flights were an added excitement. Thomas was an excellent, efficient guide - being an authority on the Yukon River and on local history. We felt very safe in his hands even though the water level was exceptionally high. The camp sites were amazing. One offered viewing of a grizzly bear on the opposite bank which we watched for several hours. All the equipment was in first class condition, and Thomas's bush cooking was superb. Thank you, Thomas!

Best quality equipment and logistics


I wanted to THANK YOU so much for the exceptional trip last week down the Yukon River. Your communication, planning, quality of food and equipment, and logistics was the absolute best. It was a trip of a lifetime.
We so appreciated Joey being punctual and he did a perfect job. Rob was super experienced and prepared. We never had any concerns with Rob as our leader of the trip. We gave him some feedback for people who have more experience than normal; which he received well. We so enjoyed him as a guide and friend. He was absolutely outstanding.

An everlasting beautiful memory


Thomas and Kelly,
One cannot imagine this journey. To have been captivated by the Yukon territory floated into heaven was awe inspiring. Your entire organization made this experience and everlasting beautiful memory. Joey was so very pleasant when we met on Sunday. Rob made the trip the journey of a lifetime. Such nice, intelligent, cooperative and congenial gentlemen made the trip incredible.

Accommodating and friendly


I had an absolutely incredible snowmobiling experience. It was, by far, the highlight of my Yukon trip. Yukon Wide Adventures were so accommodating and friendly. I can't wait to visit Whitehorse again and do more tours with them!

Personable and Knowledgeable


Yukon Wide was everything I wanted in an outfitter. Thomas and Kelly answered emails quickly and accurately. Personable and knowledgeable, they accommodated me even when they were short staff, providing excellent equipment for me to paddle the Yukon River.

Absolutely awesome experience


Had an absolutely awesome experience today with Yukon Wide. We did a HeliHike and everything was on time, as expected and our guide Thomas was very helpful. Will definitely suggest them to friends who might come here. Thank you!
