In 2021, we rafted the Snake River in the northern Yukon. It was a tremendous trip. I am currently working to publish that trip as well. If you are interested in the Snake, watch this blog for updates.
It was a hard river to get to, especially with Covid-19 still active. We flew from Calgary to Whitehorse, and were whisked away by van to the Fox Bay Resort on Historic Lac Laberge. The next day we were bussed up to Mayo, all the while being kept away from the local communities we passed through. Then we flew by float plane to Duo Lakes, which is near the Snake River.
We were close, but still not there. Next time I will tell you how we got from Duo Lake to the Snake itself. We had a choice of an ultra modern form of transportation, or a much older more historical form.

I have described my first three rafting trips in the book Rafting the Great Northern Rivers: The Nahanni, Firth, and Tatshenshini.
