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. Get to feed and take care of your group of dogs with the help of your guide. Enjoy an evening dinner and sled dog tales and history with your host.

  2. Day 2 Explore the North

    You’ll build your skills further today as we’ll explore Fish Creek valley and its diversified environment. In the evening, enjoy more fireside tales as we delve deeper into Yukon’s past. Pierre-Luc will introduce you on the natural history and geography of Fish Lake, which has some interesting secrets to reveal.

  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 an eye out for wildlife as we’ll be climbing up into tundra that is home to caribou and ptarmigan. Back at the ranch, after good local meal, set up your camera outside watch for northern lights.

  4. Day 4* Celebrate

    We’ve saved one of our favorite trails for the last day. Bring your camera; this is one for the photo album. At the end of the day we’ll head out for a well-deserved dip at the Takhini hot springs and back to town to celebrate four days of adventure.
