Day-1 Arrival You will be picked up at the hotel late morning or at the airport upon arrival in Whitehorse and shuttled to the skiplane departure gate. A special treat awaits you in the form of a beautiful panoramic flight from Whitehorse to the remote Lodge, where you land on the frozen lake. The remainder of the day is to relax and get settled for the following days at your wilderness getaway. Day-2 Dogsledding Adventure
In the morning, you will meet the mushers and their dogs and go on a tour with them. If you are comfortable, you can even ride your own sled or share one witht he musher and spend some time sitting in the sled as a passenger, enjoying the landscape passing by. You'll stop for lunch in the middle of the wilderness and prepare a hearty trapper meal for you and provide the dogs some rest and food as well. In the evening, you may want to relax in our wood-heated sauna.
Day-3 Snowmobile Expedition The Skidoos are many Yukoner's mean of Transport number 1 during winter time. Today's trip brings you further into the wild backcountry, enjoying a speedy ride over the pristine frozen lake. On the way, you will enjoy an outdoor meal around a campfire, like the first trappers and prospectors did more than 100 years ago. Day-5 Snowshoeing or other activity Today, you may want to relax and enjoy the surroundings of the deeply frozen Tagish Lake, or take part in another soft activity, such as the popular ice fishing, an easy winter hike on your self-made snowshoes or an active tour on cross-country skis. At night, if luck is on your side, you may be able to marvel at the mystic Northern Lights, Aurora Borealis. Sitting around a sparkling campfire and protected by a trapper tent, you wait for these fascinating nature phenomenon – at ideal conditions, the Northern Lights span over the whole lake towards the north. Day-5 Departure for Whitehorse Transfer by skiplane back to Whitehorse. A scenic 30-minute flight takes you from the lodge directly back to Whitehorse – only the ride on a skiplane makes your Yukon vacation complete!
