Photo © Yukon 1000

With many years of experience in kayak racing and several years at the Yukon River Quest, we offer you our professional service and support for the Yukon 1000 race. Thomas has already successfully completed the Yukon River Quest 6 times among the top 3 solo kayaker’s and finished three times as the captain of the team 1st place in the Voyageur category and twice overall. He paddled more than 25,000 km on the Yukon between Whitehorse and Dawson City in the past 15 years. Hardly anyone knows this river section better than Thomas.

We offer you first-class boat material, which is used exclusively for Marathon Racing. We have various fast double kayaks and double canoes in our rental fleet.

7 times first places for Yukon Wide Adventures racing boats at the 2017, 2018 and 2019 Yukon River Quest.

Racing boats from Yukon Wide Adventures won several times at the 2017, 2018 and 2019 Yukon River Quest. Thus the “Texan” Voyageur achieved the 1st place in the Voyageur category and also the 1st place overall. The WK 640 K2 placed 1st in the category of mixed double kayaks, as well as in the category of mens double kayaks.

The following racing boats are available:

WK 640 K2 Sport

This double kayak is a fantastic combination of speed in relation to the volume of the boat.  The difference to the expedition variant is that the seats are closer together and the middle storage space is thus eliminated. Because of the shape and dimensions of the bottom, this boat is really fast and the perfect boat for marathons and other long distance races. It has relatively low deck for a double and therefore there is enough comfort for shorter paddlers as well.

This boat placed 1st in the K2 mixed category in the 2017 Yukon River Quest.

WK 640 K2 Expedition

This double kayak is a fantastic combination of speed in relation to the volume of the boat. Thanks to the middle compartment this boat has more dry storage space than the majority of doubles. Because of the shape and dimensions of the bottom, this boat is really fast and the perfect boat for marathons and other long distance races. It has relatively low deck for a double and therefore there is enough comfort for shorter paddlers as well.
