Imagine yourself wrapped up in a remote cabin next to a crackling fire while outside the sky is alive with the twisting dance of the northern lights. Canada’s Yukon is an unspoilt natural wonder. Tagish Lodge is surrounded by soaring granite peaks, rugged mountain passes, vast expanses of icy lakes and the powerful waters of the Yukon River. Against a backdrop of deep blue skies and a smooth white horizon a myriad of wildlife makes it an ideal destination for nature enthusiasts and photographers keen on seeing species in their natural environments.

Beneath this rugged beauty you will find the Yukon is steeped in history. Enjoy snowshoeing the same ridges negotiated by Canada’s indigenous First Nation people or visit the remote
settlements where prospectors found gold.
Your Northern Winter Wilderness tour combines the serenity and magnitude of the Canadian landscape with the buzz of Whitehorse: an authentic Klondike Gold Rush town. Few people ever experience the such a remote flight over endless wilderness or the exhilaration of landing a ski plane on a frozen lake. Welcome to Lake Tagish! The Tagish Lodge provides a luxurious cozy log cabin with a still and silent wilderness at your doorstep. This unique and completely secluded place is ideal for those who love solitude and want to enjoy privacy and unspoilt nature. With the nearest road over 27 km away, Tagish Wilderness Lodge is only accessible by dogsled, skidoo or ski plane in winter – here is where you get the true wilderness feeling! In the evening make sure to look outside regularly as the lack of light at Tagish Lodge makes watching the Aurora Borealis ideal. Bundle up and sit in a snow bank to watch twisting, dancing
waves of light stream across the sky.
From here you can either relax in this magnificent setting or build in personalized experiences to your tastes
