Funny thing happens every spring. After waiting months for warm weather to arrive, many Canadians and visitors to the country find the desire to explore the north.

Nahanni River Adventures in the Yukon Territory makes the trek easier and more affordable with its package offered via Travel Yukon.

This organization has been delivering wilderness rafting and canoe expeditions since 1972. With the Tatshenshini & Alsek Glaciers & Grizzlies package, you can explore Yukon’s finest rivers: Tatshenshini, Alsek, Firth, Snake and more. Enjoy six to 14 days of fun on mountains and glaciers teeming with abundant wildlife, amazing scenery, and superb hiking.

Why is the Tatshenshini River so famous? According to tour operator’s website, “It’s because it’s part of the world’s largest bio-preserve and largest non-polar glaciers. It flows through the Coast Ranges of Yukon, British Columbia, Alaska, Glacier Bay National Park, Alsek/Tatshenshini Provincial Park, to the Gulf of Alaska.”

The Arctic is the place to visit if you love nature at its rustic best. Wildlife and wild flowers abound!

Rafters can hike on a glacier and float in an iceberg-filled lake.

Go to Nahanni River Adventures website and pick the date you want to leave and trip that’s right for you. Whether you enjoy the excitement and comfort of expedition rafting, a challenging canoe adventure or the solitude and relaxation of flat water, you’ll come home with stories that will last a lifetime.

This opportunity starts at $5,825 per person and is valid from June 21 to August 14, 2013.
