This is a trip for lovers of spectacular scenery: the mountains are tall and snowcapped, the lakes are bright blue and there are icefields at the beginning and pretty, warm grasslands and a fjord at the end. As far as wildlife goes there are bears, salmon, bald eagles, wolves, cougars and mountains goats hiding in the forests and marshlands you pass and who will watch you as you negotiate some of the rivers narrow but towering canyons, which can be a bit intimidating.

This is best done as a long trip, the whole river is just under 200kms and all the really remote and pristine bits are along the middle section which are hard to reach by land. There are really nice places to camp along the rivers edge The white water is class two, three and four, so pretty exciting in places but more technically challenging than adrenalin ramping.
