14 Days Solo Camping in the Yukon Wilderness – E. 1 – Outfitting & Bush Plane Drop Off


#yukonwild #aloneinthewild #bravewilderness

The Yukon holds some of the World’s last large expanses of wilderness. It’s, brave wilderness – deep backcountry camping, remote wild camping in the full sense of the word as it’s well off grid and far from the road system. This is episode 1 of my documentary series about my survival in the woods where I’m truly alone in the wild and exploring the Yukon. After bush flying into a remote mountain lake, I head out solo camping and fishing on a wilderness travel adventure for fourteen days by canoe. On the trip, I paddle the advanced level whitewater of the Hess River and then follow the Stewart River, completing the trip some 400 kilometres later in the community of Mayo. On this adventure, I catch Arctic Graylings and Lake Trout. What’s better than catching wild Trout for a catch and cook over the fire while in the Yukon? I also find a remote traditionally-built trappers log cabin, run multiple whitewater rapids, undertake long, bushwhacked portages and see a lot of wildlife.

The Yukon is a place where dreams are made and where adventurers have been going to follow their dreams since the Klondike gold rush in the 1880s. As much as anyone, I went there to follow my dreams and they became a reality.
