the most scenic sandy beach with miles of privacy along the shores of Teslin Lake. The
fishing is tremendous and the winter sunlight requires sun glasses!!
Teslin Lake is 85 miles long and surrounded by mountains. The Nisutlin River opens
into Teslin Lake at Teslin. At its confluence with Nisutlin Bay upstream about 10 miles
you will find the internationally recognized Nisutlin River National Wildlife area where
thousands of ducks, geese, swans and shorebirds seek out their annual migrational route
on the western flyway enroute to their summer Arctic breeding grounds. This is also one
of the headwaters of the world famous Yukon River that eventually leads through
Dawson City and the Klondike Gold Fields on its way to the Bering Sea.
The world’s longest inland salmon run also takes place in the Yukon River and many
salmon find their way back to Teslin Lake and it’s headwaters from the Bering Sea.
Your nearest neighbour is 1 km away. Close enough for help – but ensuring you a true
refuge of Yukon wilderness.
The Alaska Highway is your street and is exceptionally well maintained year round. This
is the only road access to Alaska and is well traveled year round.
The property is benched has many ideal building sites for Guest Cabins with stunning
views. There will always be a ready market for the “Fabled Yukon Cabin” with a
wilderness adventure theme.
