Kalin Pallet

Kalin’s passion for the outdoors began as a child, but things really took off in 1991, when his oldest friend introduced him to the magic of Ontario’s Algonquin Provincial Park. That first canoe trip sparked a commitment to spending as much time as possible outdoors that continues to this day.

Although paddling is his primary area of expertise, Kalin enjoys a wide range of outdoor activities from mountain and gravel biking, to alpine and Nordic skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and hiking. But he doesn’t run. For any reason.

Kalin actively works in Yukon’s wilderness tourism industry through his company Eddyline, which provides business

development, program delivery and logistical support services for the tourism sector. He is President of the Wilderness Tourism Association of the Yukon (WTAY), Co-Chair of the Yukon Wild Marketing Committee and also serves on the Board of Directors for the Tourism Industry Association of the Yukon (TIA Yukon). Kalin is both proud of, and passionate about, his Yukon home and embraces every opportunity to share it with others.
