Explore one of
the last wild rivers
in British Columbia!
The Stikine River
Last summer we sent a group of people to Northern British Columbia to explore the Stikine River. For them, it was a trip of a lifetime and one they will always remember. You can read about their adventures here.
The Stikine River is considered to be one of the last wild rivers in British Columbia. It is known as the 'Great River' by the native Tlingit people and part of it is thought of as the Grand Canyon of Canada.
The river is one of the fastest flowing in North America and begins in Northern British Columbia and outlets in Alaska. It is a wild river, approximately 610km long, and boasts class 5 rapids. The river has abundant wildlife, outstanding views of varying landscapes, hot springs, and hundreds of glaciers along its meandering path.
Flexpeditions offers you the chance to explore the lower portion of the river on a 13-day canoe expedition. We will begin in the arid and warm climate of the Cassier Mountains around Telegraph Creek and then canoe into the coastal rainforest of the Coastal Mountains and eventually arrive close to Wrangell, Alaska on the Pacific Coast. The Stikine River is thought to be one of the most diverse and dramatic canoeable rivers on the West Coast and is one of the last genuine wild rivers in British Columbia.
Some canoe experience is necessary. The trip itinerary is still to be finalised.
This year is the 150th birthday celebration of our country, so why not explore this wild and beautiful river in celebration of that?
