The Tatshenshini River, rated the #1 river trip in the world in National Geographics "Journeys of a Lifetime", drains the northwest corner of B.C. and the southwest corner of the Yukon Territory. The river joins the Alsek River just before the Alaska border and continues through Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska to drain into the Pacific Ocean at Dry Bay. Just recently, this special river valley was designated a provincial park and has also achieved UNESCO World Heritage status, thus protecting it for generations to come. Shakespeare's assertion that "man is the measure of all things" could not have been made by anyone who has spent time on the Tatshenshini River. Here, man is humbled by the sheer mythic proportions of the landscape. The broad river and towering mountains will take your breath away.
