ITINERARY

The Sky High van will pick you up at 10AM from Whitehorse. Here you have the chance to shop for items you may need for your trip. Once we arrive at the Ranch, you will have a brief tour as you get a feel of the rich history of Sky High Wilderness Ranch and Fish Lake. Settle into your room in the main Lodge. Enjoy a light lunch with your guide and discuss the coming adventure. Meet your horse and participate in a horseback intro - your guide will give a brief safety lesson and then instruct you on the proper care of horses as well as the correct procedure to halter and saddle your horse. Saddle up and head out on your very first short ride. Breathe deeply the fresh mountain air as you stroll through the Fish Lake Valley taking in all the scents and sounds of a summer day. Overnight in Lodge (Lunch, Dinner).

Each day, after bringing the horses to the main yard and feeding them breakfast, enjoy a "human" breakfast in the main lodge. Next you will pack a lunch, prepare your horse and head out into some of the most spectacular landscapes the Yukon has to offer. Don't forget to pack your camera as this area is a photographer’s paradise! Take in the beauty as you ride through peaceful valleys, on majestic Mountain ridges, through meadows and across creeks. Wildlife are abundant in the area and you have a chance to see; fox, rabbits, squirrels, lynx, coyote, moose, bear and caribou. Head back to main lodge for dinner and some relaxation. Overnight in Lodge (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner).

Spend some peaceful moments in the company of your horse while you tend to their breakfast and head to the lodge for your breakfast. Today we ride next to beautiful Fish Lake and over Fish Creek towards Bonneville Ridge. Head up the trail into the trees and climb above tree line to witness epic views from every angle. Wind across the ridge and down the trail to find a perfect spot for lunch on the shores of Bonneville Lakes. Take this opportunity to take photos and relax before mounting your horse to explore the rolling ridges. End your day back at the ranch where you will give one last hug to your new four legged friend, pack your bag and head back to your Whitehorse hotel (Lunch, Dinner).
