Yukon River Quest 2017 begins


Today was the start of the 700-kilometre journey from Whitehorse to Dawson City: The Yukon River Quest.

Some people use canoes, some use kayaks and some even use stand-up paddle boards.

There are two enforced rest stops totalling 10 hours in all, but other than that it’s go-go-go for a few days. Some people sleep while others paddle and some nights people don’t sleep at all.
