The Yukon has many of the finest wilderness adventure canoeing river trips in the world. It has everything from the grandeur of the broad Yukon River valley with its easy carefree canoe trips to the challenging whitewater rapids and spectacular wilderness mountain scenery of the Snake, Wind and Mountain Rivers. From the Big Salmon River to the Hess, there are endless possibilities for everyone regardless of their kayaking skills.

So who is Cabin Fever Adventures? Simply put, they are able to provide a custom Yukon canoe trip on almost any river in the Yukon . The company owned and operated by Dustin and Brook Davis formed in 2008, but the story started much earlier. Dustin Davis began his guiding career in Ontario in 1996 leading canoe trips in Algonquin Provincial Park. Since that time he has lead river trips, sea kayaking trips on Lake Superior, dog sledding trips in the Yukon and Ontario, mountain hiking trips in the Yukon and participated in numerous other varied and diverse outdoor experiences. Dustin and his wife run the business from a gorgeous property overlooking the Coastal Mountains in Carcross, an unincorporated Yukon community surrounded by Bennett Lake and Nares Lake - you'll be right in the heart of wilderness.
Apart from river kayaking, in the Southern Lakes District of the Yukon lies another surprise - relatively unknown kayaking gem with no less than eight large, mountain-lined lakes that provide amazing kayak trips. These Yukon fresh-water lakes have the immense feel of ocean sea kayaking, yet have the benefits of a fresh-water environment. This is an absolutely must-see!
In addition to canoe trips Cabin Fever Adventures also provide rafting trips, hiking, mountain biking or snowshoeing to name a few. You can even rent a boat, canoe or camping gear - all well maintained and hard to find around these parts. Visit Cabin Fever Adventures website or get in touch with Dustin to find out more what's currently on offer, you won't be disappointed.
