Modelled after the famous Juvet Landscape Hotel in Norway, the Black Spruce cabins are a unique environmentally focused accommodation in the outskirts of Whitehorse. Located just a few minutes from the airport and the city centre, the cabins offer a different style of lodging from local hotels. Here you can stay in a fully contained passive solar cabin made from rough cut local Yukon spruce while being within a short drive of all the best restaurants, bars and attractions in Whitehorse.
With three nights in the Black Spruce cabins, you’ll have plenty of time to take in and appreciate all the cool features, such as the Shou Sugi-Ban siding (a Japanese technique of treating wood by burning), the cedar sauna that was cleverly built around existing boulders and is heated by a Finnish wood stove, and the rocky cliffs and forest of the adjacent park.
Spend your days relaxing in the cozy cabin, visiting eclectic Whitehorse and exploring the vast northern landscape. Your stay includes a visit to the recently renovated Eclipse Nordic Hot Springs (adults only) where you can relax and rejuvenate in the ancient restorative mineral springs and enjoy the onsite amenities that feature both Scandinavian and Japanese Onsen healing practices.
Take a trip to the Yukon Wildlife Preserve, located approximately 30 min from Whitehorse, to see northern wildlife such as elk, Canada lynx, thinhorn sheep, wood buffalo and muskox.
In the evenings, head out to try some of Whitehorse’s best restaurants for dinner (we highly recommend the Wayfarer) and then drive out of town a bit to catch the Aurora Borealis on clear nights. You can join an optional Aurora viewing tour or visit some of the local favourite Northern Lights viewing hotspots on your own.
This northern getaway is perfect for those looking to travel independently and enjoy staying in one-of-a-kind accommodations. The proximity to the city and all of its amenities is a huge bonus especially during the winter months. The Black Spruce cabins are about 45 minutes from Carcross, which makes for an easy and scenic day trip.
