Imagine the feeling of your hand dipping into the Yukon River as you take 11 days to prepare and navigate, by canoe, over 400km of pure Canadian adventure, from Carmacks to Dawson City. Both the river and paddle experience are immense, beautiful and memorable. You and your fellow adventurers will take a step back in time and explore some of the places where the gold rush captured so many hearts and souls while sleeping under the Aurora Borealis at night.

Sign up for Artemis Women In Leadership Yukon Expedition where you have the space and place needed to focus on your own personal growth, interests and curiosities whilst having the opportunity to further develop your outdoor leadership skills, become confident in your Yukon river canoe paddling and connect with women like yourself. Artemis programs, through excellent instruction in outdoor leadership skills, share the gifts of the wilderness with people of all colours, abilities, backgrounds, sizes, gender identities and experience levels.

Fireside's Artemis Women In Leadership Adventure Series takes women on multi-day expeditions and outdoor adventures to pristine wilderness areas, like Yukon and Gambier Island, in an effort to release their inner Artemis (Greek Goddess of Wilderness). Artemis programs are carefully crafted to encourage participants to become more confident in the wilderness, while creating the right environment to build and explore a deep connection to the natural world. We offer Artemis because we know the importance of offering opportunities and training for women who want to be surrounded by and be connected with like-minded women who are interested in learning something knew and feeling challenged in a more spiritual and organic way.

We are the only company designing outdoor adventures to allow you to enjoy and experience our core pillars for adults - Life, Be, and Adventure in the wilderness:

Let’s be honest, we are increasingly feeling disconnected to anything real, while our phones, screen and other responsibilities are consuming our thoughts and our time time. You know that participating in an experience that emphasises the preciousness of LIFE and allowing you an opportunity to BE your true self while partaking on an outdoor ADVENTURE, is something we don’t often allow ourselves. We are ready for you. Click LIFE. BE. ADVENTURE.
