Alaska whitewater, Tatshenshini River

Yukon Territory and British Columbia county, Blanchard Road to Dalton Post section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS III     21 miles
  The average Alaska whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master than those in other states, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that many of the sections here are not safe for beginners. The beautiful scenery of Yukon Territory and British Columbia Borough and the water flowing gracefully down Tatshenshini River attract people from near and far. Getting your paddling muscles activated and just hanging out
    with mother nature are great attractions for lots of people. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. The Blanchard Road to Dalton Post stretch is the only paddling stretch along Tatshenshini River. You can enjoy this
stretch more if you take your time, so why not pack your camp stove too. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. This stretch of Tatshenshini River in Yukon Territory and British Columbia Borough is 21 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class III section. When you're paddling down a Chugach Mountains river like this one you always get great scenery along the way too.
