THE RIVER OF LIFE

12 days through the wilderness of Canada in a canoe.

“No one comes back from a trip the way they left.
Graham Greene (1904 - 1991)"

Dive into the wild. Breathe deeply. Feel. The sun, the rain, the wind.
 
Listen. Be in the breathtaking landscape. Be Yourself.
 
Become one with the canoe, the river, the axe, the fishing rod, the forest.
 
Sharpen your senses. Welcome and embrace any dangers. Feel your limits.  Enjoy.
 
See the beauty of nature. Learn the essentials. Challenge yourself, your body and the wilderness.

12 days in the pristine wilderness of Northern Canada with a canoe.
 
Paddle the river of your life.
 
Sit by the campfire and see your own world close up and from a distance.
 
The mighty nature of the Canadian wilderness all around you.

ADVENTURE

 

Your body is strengthened and trained by the daily challenges you face when paddling, fishing, setting up camp, making firewood and much more.

You paddle through rapids, feel the sun and the rain on your skin.

The campfire warms you when the sun disappears behind the horizon, with a cup of coffee in your hand you listen to the sounds of the forest. Beavers, caribou, bald eagles and brown bears are your companions on this journey.

SENSE AND CONNECT

 

With each day of your journey, your senses will become sharper. In the afternoon you smell the rain shower that promises us cooling in the evening. Out of the corner of your eye you notice every little movement on the bank that a young caribou has caused. You slide deeper and deeper into nature that surrounds you, get to know it, become one with it.

ITINERARY

07/10 – 07/24/2022

 

School of Nature Travel offers a 12-day river trip on one of the most beautiful rivers in the Yukon Territory - the Nisutlin.

 

We meet on July 10, 2022 at the campground directly on the Yukon in Whitehorse for a first acquaintance and acclimatization.

 

On the following day we will first distribute the equipment, discuss necessary organizational matters and divide the group into teams of 2 on the canoes. Afterwards we can supplement our equipment and groceries in the city and enjoy a last beer.

The next morning we start our approximately 4 hour drive to the Nisutlin. There we unload the canoes we brought on a trailer and  get us ready for our journey into the wilderness.

 

After just a few meters, after we let the canoes slide into the clear water of the river, the wilderness surrounds us.

 

During our next 12-day canoe trip, we will be gliding on mostly calm to very calm waters. Large sandbanks invite you to go fishing, sunbathing or to spend the night.

 

During our trip, especially in the evenings, when we have set up our camp and the food is ready, we have the opportunity for individual or joint activities.

 

Meditations, insights, storytelling and journaling, bush crafting, fishing, swimming or just sitting by the fire. Everyone as much and what he likes.

 

Carsten will give impulses in the form of short stories, suggestions or exercises that everyone can use as they wish.

 

Before departure, each participant receives a journal in the form of a diary, in which they can document the inner part of their journey to work with during the journey or later, or simply to have a nice memory.

 

After our shuttle service picked us up again on July 24th, 2022, the last day of our canoe tour at the agreed meeting point, we drive back to Whitehorse, where we either spend another night on the campground or check into the hotel to take a shower again and sleep in a real bed.

 

If you like, you can end the tour together in the group in the restaurant in the evening and reflect upon the experience.

 

The next day we part ways. Perhaps some of you will continue to explore this or other areas of North America, the rest of us will return home filled with many beautiful and inspiring memories and moments.
