A great way to explore the old routes of the Klondike goldseekers.

Our Miles Canyon canoe trip on the Yukon River starts above Canyon City and leads us to numerous historic sites. Shortly before Schwatka Lake we pass through the spectacular Miles Canyon. At its time it was one of the notorious rapids of the Yukon, the end of many dreams of striking it rich.
