Float the Stikine River in a Canoe
Famous for the intense whitewater found upriver in Turn-Back Canyon, the lower part of the Stikine, called "The Great River" by native Tlingit tribes meanders through the last 165 miles from Telegraph Creek in British Colombia to Wrangell, Alaska. While there are no rapids here, it's a quick float — the Stikine is North America's fastest flowing navigable river. Passing beneath glaciated mountains, past icebergs, and through pristine wilderness full of wildlife like Grizzly Bears and Bald Eagles. John Muir referred to the Stikine as "a Yosemite one hundred miles long."
