Map 1: Google Maps image of the trip.
The trip is 1500km (900+ miles) of paddling a total of 6 rivers; the Hart, Peel, Rat, Bell, Porcupine and the Yukon. (see map)
- We began on the 3rd of July 2013 on the Hart River and finished at the Prudhoe Bay highway bridge in Alaska on the 3rd of September.
- We travelled through the Peel and Yukon watersheds. The Peel is one of the best examples of natural ecosystems not yet affected by major disturbances in the world.
- The Yukon river extends into Alaska and has already suffered the effects of industry.
- Major hurdles include: 7-8km portage of the Aberdeen Canyon on the Peel River and the 140km upriver paddle along the mosquito infested Rat River to reach the continental divide between the Peel Watershed and the Yukon Watershed.
