This is a WWF study/report which is basically a top ten list of the longest free-flowing rivers in Canada. Has anyone here paddled all 10? I regret to say I haven't been on a single one (yet!!).

I've soaked in the Liard hot springs, does that count?

Those aren't terribly easily accessed rivers, which goes along with them being considered wild.

I've paddled 2 of them, both wonderful rivers, top to bottom - the Horton & the Stikine (well...not the Stikine Canyon! but both Upper & Lower Stikine) & a smidgen of the Liard - where the S. Nahanni flows into the Liard to Lindberg Landing.



The top 10 list of wild rivers:

Liard River (Yukon Territory, British Columbia, Northwest Territories)
Kazan River (Nunavut)
Dubawnt River (Nunavut, Northwest Territories)
Thelon River (Nunavut, Northwest Territories)
Horton River (Northwest Territories)
Anderson River (Northwest Territories)
Taltson River (Northwest Territories)
Stikine River (British Columbia)
Ekwan River (Ontario)
Birch River (Alberta)
