Our activities and experiences
Whitehorse is the start and finishing point for both of our trips to the Yukon Territory allowing guests to experience both a typical Klondike Gold Rush town and to discover the stunning wilderness that surrounds it.
During our relaxing winter trip, The Yukon – Winter at the Lodge, our guests spend 3-nights at the Northern Lights Resort and Spa, only a 20-minute drive away from Whitehorse, and can make use of the on-site sauna, gym and outdoor hot tub. Snowshoes can be rented locally and guests can take advantage of the many maintained trails that surround the resort; the trip also includes a 2-3 hour husky safari.
Our Yukon Quest trip takes on a slightly different approach, following the toughest dog sledding race on earth from its start in Whitehorse to the mid-way point at Dawson City, home of the great Klondike Gold Rush. Not only do our guests follow the race, but they also get to take part in two full days of dog sledding along frozen rivers and through snow-covered forests.
Whichever trip you choose, you will view the Yukon in a new light. You won’t have to struggle like the prospectors who travelled before you….. we arrange everything for you. Transfers and cold weather clothing are provided and our local guides will ensure you learn about the real Yukon that is clearly so dear to them.
