Itinerary

  1. Day 1 Learn the basics

    Get introduced to your team of huskies and build your skills on a three- to four-hour ride around the ranch. Keep an eye out for the family of lynx that lives on the trail. Enjoy an evening dinner and sled dog tales and history with your host.

  2. Day 2 Experience the North

    We’ll start the day with a breakfast of northern berries. You’ll build your skills further today as we head up into the alpine environment overlooking Fish Lake. In the evening, enjoy more fireside tales as we delve deeper into Yukon’s past.

  3. Day 3* Mush in the alpine tundra*

    By now you’ll be ready to tackle more challenging trails as Pierre-Luc takes you into the higher elevations. Expect to spend a minimum of four hours on your sled. Keep and eye out for wildlife as we’ll  be climbing up into tundra that is home to caribou and ptarmigan. In the evening we’ll head out to the Takhini hot springs to enjoy a dip.

    * Day 3 is not included in our three-day tour package.

  4. Day 4 Celebrate

    We’ve saved one of our favourite trails for the last day. Bring your camera; this is one for the photo album. At the end of the day we’ll head back to town to freshen up and celebrate four days of adventure.
