DAY 2: WILDLIFE, A BIRDS-EYE-VIEW AND NORTHERN LIGHTS

Start the day with a view from above: see the spectacular winter scenery on a 30-minute sightseeing flight. You'll experience the Yukon winter from an angle only a few people ever see. Back in Whitehorse, you will discover the history of the north on a city-sightseeing tour. Whitehorse has a lot to offer and is home to famous sights like the historic Paddlewheeler SS Klondike and a “Skyscraper” made solely out of logs. Later we'll drive to the Yukon Wildlife Preserve for an up-close look at iconic inhabitants, such as elk, moose, caribou, mountain goats, and lynx in their natural surroundings. Not far from here we will visit the Eclipse Nordic Hot Springs and indulge ourself in the natural hot waters and relax in a breathtaking winter mountain setting.

After a relaxed dinner in Whitehorse, you’ll be back on the road again, this time to seek views of the stunning Northern Lights. Relax in sheltered comfort, or under the starry sky beside a warm fire at one of our tailor-made aurora viewing locations.

Accommodation: Sternwheeler Hotel (or similar)

DAY 3: THE HUSKIES ARE WAITING FOR US AND NORTHERN LIGHTS

Today you'll learn the old tradition of mushing (dog sledding). After a detailed safety briefing, you’ll get introduced to the art of dog sledding and soon be on your way along the frozen winter trails. You’ll feel the power and endurance of the dogs, listen to their breaths, and feel the creaking snow under the runners. A totally unique experience!

Back from the dog sledding trip, you can reward yourself with a beer from the famous Yukon Brewery at one of the downtown restaurants. Later in the evening, we set out to the Aurora Centre where you’ll again seek the sight of Northern Lights.

Accommodation: Sternwheeler Hotel (or similar)

DAY 4: ON FAST TRACKS THROUGH THE SNOW

After breakfast, we drive into the mountains close to Whitehorse. After a detailed safety introduction, you'll head out on a guided snowmobile ride. With enjoyable speed, we’ll pass through the memorable winter scenery of the Yukon and soak up the view of snow-covered mountains and lakes covered with thick layers of ice. With a snowmobile, the journey can be an exhilarating ride up and down magnificent mountains or a relaxing tour through the forest and down historic trails. The choice is yours.
