Our Aurora Cabin stands on a ridge overlooking Fish Lake and the surrounding valley. It is the perfect spot to unwind, with breath taking views and cozy, comfortable simplicity at it's best. A cozy bedroom loft gives privacy as well as an amazing view. Enjoy your morning coffee and write your postcards at the breakfast nook or on the front deck overlooking the lake, hike the ridge, wander down to the lake shore to talk with the local fishermen or try your hand at it! Spend your evenings in quiet seclusion, or with your friends and family. Enjoy an evening BBQ and if you're lucky you may even catch a glimpse of the mystical Aurora Borealis.
Our Aurora Cabin is certainly a favorite, and it becomes clear why when you see the view! This Cabin has a spacious deck (and BBQ) overlooking Fish Lake - making it the perfect place to view the spectacular Aurora if it is around. There is a loft bedroom and it can comfortably sleep 5 people so it is perfect for families or groups wanting their own private space. Our Aurora Cabin is also equipped with a fully self-contained kitchen with propane stove and lights and a cooler to keep fridge items Bring your OWN ICE. Away from any light pollution, the cabin is wonderfully secluded so you can soak in the views and enjoy the peaceful surrounding wilderness.

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN STAYING "OFF-GRID"
Our ranch and all its accommodations truly encompass the wilderness ranch lifestyle. Sky High Wilderness Ranch is “off the grid” - it is serviced by quaint outhouses, has limited cell service, no WiFi and water is hauled up from downtown. Our buildings are warmed by a wood stove, making for a cozy stay. We have gravity-fed showers and all of our lights and appliances are all powered by propane (no electricity).
Please note we are 30 minutes from the City and have no meal options at the ranch. Please bring your own groceries before heading up.
THE SURROUNDING AREA
Nestled atop a hill overlooking Fish Lake, this cabin is situated in the perfect place to explore the Yukon wilderness. We're located approximately 25-30 minutes from downtown Whitehorse, in the Coastal Mountains of Southern Yukon - along the Fish Lake Rd at approx km 16. In the Winter we run exceptional dog sled tours and during Summer months the dogs get a rest and the horses can take you out to explore our beautiful area at Fish Lake. We also have an abundance of hiking trails, suitable for all ages and fitness levels, there's plenty to do during your stay! Click for more information on our summer day tours, or our winter day tours.
From April to November, make sure you haul a bear protection as a bear spray (not included), wildlife is everywhere around the Ranch.
From October to April, if you rent a car, contact us to see if you need a 4 wheel drive. The road can be very complicated in winter.
Wonderful place to stay, don’t miss out! Great hiking trails close by, beautiful clean cabin, and the sauna is SUPER close to the house! Host was great as well, communicative over text and gave us our space once she had checked in on us. 10/10
Gorgeous place! We especially enjoyed the fire lit-sauna and had some amazing cleansing saunas while we were there. if you’re a hiker, don’t forget to bring bear spray, as it is not supplied. I would also recommend having a SUV or more durable car if you want to explore the roads outside of the ranch for hiking. Cell reception is a five minute drive away at Fish Lake.
The cabin was everything we expected and more. A quick drive from downtown, but secluded enough that there was zero light pollution. Beautiful sunsets and sunrises, puppies to play with on-site, the hosts were amazing and very tentative. Such an awesome experience to see the Yukon
