Itinerary

Upon Arrival in Whitehorse you will need to buy supplies at the grocery store - we can pick up at the Real Canadian Super Store 1.5 hrs after your flight arrival giving you time to take a cab down town and pick up any groceries (The store is happy to keep your bags at customer service). Afterwards, we drive to the Sky High Wilderness Ranch, 20km South of Whitehorse. You'll be taken to your secluded getaway to settle in. Tonight is the first night you get to hunt for the beautiful Aurora (unguided)! Light a fire in the pit to keep yourself warm and take a short hike up the ridge to the perfect vantage point. There's even a bench for you to sit and wait for the magic to happen! With no city light pollution, the view from here is spectacular, and when the lights are out prepare yourself for quite a show.

While the morning sun lifts slowly over the magnificent horizon, we say hello to a beautiful Yukon morning! Have a much-needed sleep-in after your late night Aurora hunting, and then get ready for your afternoon adventure. Make your way to the Office and get ready to explore the beautiful Fish Lake area in a way you never would have imagined: today you get to drive your very own team of sled dogs on a guided dogsled tour! Dog sledding is an exciting and unique experience, one you will never forget. Your dog team will pull you up hills, across frozen streams and through snowy landscapes. After your exciting adventure, wind down with a cup of something hot and some snacks and then head back over to your cozy cabin. Rest up - tonight is another chance to see the Aurora (unguided)! Head back up to the spot on the ridge, down to the frozen lake, or stay by the fire tonight. Wherever you are - keep your eyes to the sky!

Today, enjoy another sleep-in to recover from last night's Aurora excitement. This afternoon we turn up the pace and take you out on a guided snowmobile tour! You'll share the machine and take turns at the much-loved motor sport of Yukoners all over. Now that you've experienced the best of the Yukon in such a magical place, store those memories and take them back for friends and family. This afternoon we'll take you back downtown to your hotel or the airport. We say goodbye and hopefully you'll be back another day to experience the adventure all over again!
