At approximately 274m/900ft deep, 137km/85mi long, 6.5km/4mi wide, this spectacular body of water and its surrounding shores and islands offer endless destinations for boaters – waterfalls, glaciers. and remote wilderness islands and channels are just a few.
Canoeing and Kayaking
Canoeing and kayaking on the lake are becoming increasingly more popular. Paddle for one or a few days, soak in the views and fresh air, and explore the nearby, isolated wilderness. Stay overnight at rustic lakeshore campsites around Atlin Lake.
