The Yukon 1000 is the World’s Longest canoe and kayak race. The race starts in Whitehorse, Canada and runs 1000 miles through the Alaskan backcountry into the Arctic circle. The Yukon 1000 follows the footsteps of early adventurers, immersing you in the raw, untouched wilderness that few humans will ever experience. No phones. No sat navs. This is a true digital detox. With up to 10 days to complete the race, you will cross the finish line to join the elite few who have conquered the world’s longest canoe race. Yukon 1000 challengers must have the physical and mental fortitude to cope with the staggering feat of paddling 18 hours a day; just to complete the race. Completely self sufficient, teams sleep rough where they stop, and in extreme cases must be able to survive in true wilderness. The website is and registration for the 2018 race is now live.
