It is known as the ‘Great River’ by the native Tlingit people and part of it is thought of as the Grand Canyon of Canada.
The river is one of the fastest flowing in North America and begins in Northern British Columbia and outlets in Alaska.
It is a wild river, approximately 610km long, and has class 5 rapids. The river has abundant wildlife, outstanding views of varying landscapes, hot springs, and hundreds of glaciers along its meandering path.
The Stikine River is thought to be one of the most diverse and dramatic canoeable rivers on the West Coast and is one of the last genuine wild rivers in British Columbia.
Flexpeditions offers you the chance to explore the lower portion of the Stikine river on a 2-week long canoe expedition.
We will begin in the arid and warm climate of the Cassier Mountains around Telegraph Creek and then canoe into the coastal rainforest of the Coastal Mountains and eventually arrive close to Wrangell, Alaska on the Pacific Coast.
This expedition is an all-inclusive, fully catered, outfitted and guided moving water, wilderness canoe trip.

In the summer of 2016 we sent a group of people to Northern British Columbia to explore the Lower Stikine River.
For them, it was a trip of a lifetime and one they will always remember. You can read about their Trip Diary here.
