Experience the beauty of Whitehorse, glimpse the vastness of its unspoiled wilderness and beyond on a scenic flight and spend your days in true northern style: snowmobiling, dogsledding and viewing iconic wildlife. No visit to the Yukon would be complete without a chance to see the Northern Lights. The dark winter evenings of the North offer some of the best opportunities in the world to see this stunning phenomenon of lights cascading across the night sky – a truly unforgettable experience.
We had a fabulous time full of adventures, dog sledding was my absolute favourite activity, it was so amazing and the snowmobiling was super fun, no surprises that it was Hayden’s (my eldest) favourite activity getting to drive his own snowmobile!

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.
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
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
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.
