Arctic Activities of Northern Canada
Snowmobiling is a fun and exciting pastime for many Yukoners young and old! Snowmobiling through the Yukon’s unspoiled wilderness will bring you to places you would not get to easily by foot, snowshoe, or dog team. With a snowmobile, the journey can be an exhilarating ride up and down magnificent mountains or a relaxing tour through the forest and down historic trails. On a full day tour we can take you further into Whitehorse’s beautiful backyard. After a short introduction into the basics of safe snowmobile riding and handling, we are off for the rest of the day. Trails leading over frozen lakes alternate with routes through dense spruce forests. During this tour we include a lunch break where we serve a hearty meal. There’s also plenty of hot drinks to keep you warm throughout the day.
Guide, pick-up and drop-off at your accommodation, snowmobiles, helmets, warm winter clothing, introduction to safe handling of snowmobiles, snacks and hot drinks, as well as a full Northern Lunch on the trail.
Enjoy a fun-filled day experiencing the Yukon’s winter wilderness of Buck and White Fang, as described by famous Klondike Gold Rush author Jack London. After meeting your team of Alaskan huskies, you’ll watch the dogs getting harnessed and hooked up to the sled, and then we’ll hit the trail! Our tour provides a gentle ride through the serene Whitehorse area backcountry, allowing you to take in the majesty and beauty of the Yukon.
Full day includes a hearty trailside lunch.
Takhini Hot Pools is one of the most visited locations in the Yukon. The hot springs have been in operation for over 100 years. The hot springs pools are a relaxing 36° and 42° Celsius, with water entering the pool at 47 degrees. The water is natural and rich in minerals. Open year around.
Snowshoeing is a lot like hiking but allows you to go places you could not walk to without these big "shoes" under your feet - they keep you afloat and make sure you don't find yourself sinking into the snow. We can take you out exploring the mountains of the greater Whitehorse area on a half day hike. There are numerous trails we can go on that will give you a good impression of the natural grandeur of the Territory. Less than 20 minutes by car and we have left civilization behind. Snowshoeing is a silent an contemplative activity, though it can be a good workout on the steeper slopes! It is perfect for wildlife sightings and for identifying tracks in the snow.
Spend a day skiing, snowboarding or just relaxing on our Mount Sima Snow Tour. Catch our bus to Mount Sima on a short drive from downtown Whitehorse. Get a taste of the Alpine life and choose from one of our Mount Sima packages (skiing or snowboarding).
The local ski hill includes a fully-designed and maintained terrain park, earth formed half pipe and a dedicated rail park. Good snow reliability is supported by snow making ensuring plenty of snow throughout the season.
We express bus direct to Mt Sima to ensure maximum time in the snow.
Along the way we stop off to enable you to fit the ski/clothing/equipment. We take you direct to the Ski Hill and the rest is up to you - ski, board, play or relax!
Arctic Wildlife viewing
We will visit the Yukon Wildlife Preserve where you’ll have the opportunity to view and photograph wildlife in its natural habitat. Dall sheep, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, mule deer, wapiti (elk), woodland caribou, wood bison, musk-ox, moose and even lynx can all be seen on this tour, usually up close!
Let us take you out for an ice fishing adventure on one of the beautiful lakes in the Whitehorse area. The Yukon is the Land of Plenty when it comes to rivers and lakes. The choices are endless and the fishing is excellent.
Depending on conditions, our guide will choose the ideal lake for your ice fishing experience. After registering the fishing licenses, we depart for our tour. After a short drive, we leave our vehicle parked by the lakeshore and walk the short distance to our first spot. With the help of an ice-auger, we will drill a hole in the ice. The ice on a lake can be from 30 cm to 1 m thick! Using an ice fishing rod and bait, you can catch Rainbow Trout, Lake Trout, or Arctic Grayling. For everybody’s comfort, we will get a fire going and pass hot drinks around. Take a look around and enjoy the beauty of a winter’s day while waiting for the big catch!
Of course, many tall tales are told about “the one that got away”. It is always fun to swap these stories from the different climates and regions around the world! Tell us your story!
Aurora Borealis - Northern Lights
The Aurora Borealis is one of the most beautiful natural phenomena one can experience and chances are excellent that you will see it if you come for a visit to the Yukon in the winter.

During the week we will also visit different local cultural and historical places depending on feasibility and available schedules.
