Imagine yourself in the middle of nowhere, breathing in the best air on the planet, a massive sky above and travelling down the majestic Yukon River. We all know that is you enjoying your own postcard life moment.

The problem is you might be unsure if you are the right candidate or if you could physically do it and/or too young or too old. We want you with us this summer because you need it and we want to share it.

Why you’re invited:
We know you are the person in need of a perfect remedy for a mid-life fix, a personal adventure, a pause in life and/or new perspective for your career. You are the person just needing a getaway to be unplugged, learn new skills and to be inspired by injecting a Yukon River canoe trip into your bloodstream and soul.

See this invitation as an opportunity rather than an obstacle.

Feel your hand dip into the Yukon River as we provide you with excellent instruction, equipment and support while travelling over 400km down river. We share the gifts of the wilderness with people of all colours, abilities, backgrounds, sizes, gender identities and experience levels.

Fireside Adventures is designed to allow you to enjoy and experience our pillars - Life. Be. Adventure. while participating on one of our wilderness expeditions and retreats.

Just do it for you and join your fellow adventurers for Fireside’s Big Sky Adult Expedition 10 day Yukon River canoe trip and discover the wildness of the Yukon, old Gold Rush cabins and famous places like Whitehorse, Carmacks, Takhini Hot Springs and the famous frontier town of Dawson City.
