Stay tuned for dates

For 24 days you'll explore this wild, remote, and beautiful place on foot and in tandem or solo canoes. With such vast wilderness areas in the Yukon, we are constantly exploring new travel routes and promising backcountry classrooms. You may find yourself along a route never before traveled by a NOLS group, learning valuable expedition skills in dealing with the unknown, or working your way through a region already proven to provide excellent learning opportunities.

The river levels will be high during this time of year and will challenge you to practice and learn new skills of managing yourself while leading groups in a challenging environment. This course will also provide participants with an overview of the NOLS river program progressions, challenging whitewater, and individual coaching, to take you to a higher level of skill. There will be much time dedicated to risk management techniques, decision-making, and the transfer of these skills to beginner students.

Applications for Spring/Summer 2020 Instructor Courses are now closed. Applications for 2021 Instructor Courses will open on August 15, 2020.
