Day 1: Whitehorse- Champagne- Taye Lake.

Your adventure begins with a stop at the "Long Ago... Peoples Place". On a short-guided walk into the woods, you will be brought back in time when only wood, stone, and animal parts were used to create everything the Southern Tutchone culture needed. From animal and fish traps, to housing and storage structures, you will learn and be amazed at their ingenuity to make life vibrant in the far north. 

After an hour's drive in the heart of the Kluane Plateau, you will arrive at the site of a now-extinct village of dwellings, once an active fishermen's camp. Indeed, long ago the salmon went up from the Yukon River to the Mendenhall River and joined Taye Lake to lay eggs. . It is also possible to see magnificent swans or proud bald eagles. Well paddle upstream for a short distance on the Mendenhall River then we ll reach the Taye Lake.
