Follow in the footsteps of early adventurers - immerse yourself in the raw, untouched wilderness that few humans will ever experience. No phones. No sat navs. This is a true digital detox. With up to 10 days to complete the race, you will cross the finish line to join the elite few who have conquered the world’s longest canoe race.
Days to complete the challenge
Miles of untouched wilderness
Support unless your life is in imminent danger
Yukon 1000 challengers must have the physical and mental fortitude to cope with the staggering feat of paddling 18 hours a day; just to complete the race. Completely self sufficient, teams sleep rough where they stop, and in extreme cases must be able to survive in true wilderness.
Whitewater, fallen trees, braided and poorly mapped channels are just some of the challenges entrants will face. One wrong turn forces competitors to backtrack up river in the most isolated grizzly and black bear territory in the world.
