The Yukon Aurora Deluxe package includes breakfast, accommodation and a fun day tour in Yukon’s capital, Whitehorse. During the day you will have fun dogsledding, exploring wildlife and soaking in hotsprings (winter season) or you will enjoy a scenic tour to Skagway with a train ride across the White Pass (summer season). In the evening you have the chance to see the stunning Aurora Borealis on our Aurora viewing tours at our custom built Aurora viewing location, the AuroraCentre, far from the lights of the city, so you can be mesmerized by the Northern Lights - and create your own legends.

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival Whitehorse
From the airport we drive you to your hotel located in the centre of Whitehorse. One of the most sought-after Northern experiences, a Yukon winter vacation is only complete with viewing the aurora borealis cascading across the Yukon night sky. After a relaxed dinner we will pick you up from the hotel for our evening program at the famous AuroraCentre. Accommodation: Westmark Whitehorse.
Day 2: Yukon Experience
(1) In the winter season you will travel to the Takhini River area, just outside Whitehorse. Our first stop is at the Kennel, where you’ll assist in harnessing and hooking up your own team of Alaskan huskies before being whisked away in the sled basket on a wonderful trip on the trails along the Takhini River with your own private musher at the helm of your team. An ideal tour for those who just want a taste of dog sledding without embarking on an expedition, participants who are interested, will then have the opportunity to drive their own team in comfort. After you’ve had a warm northern-style lunch and said good bye to the wonderful huskies, we’ll depart to the Yukon Wildlife Preserve where you’ll have the opportunity to view and photograph wildlife in its natural habitat. Dalls sheep, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, mule deer, wapiti (elk), woodland caribou, wood bison, musk-ox, moose and even lynx can all seen on this tour, usually up close! To cap of a great day, we’ll travel to the nearby Takhini Hotsprings. The outdoor hot springs pool provides a warm sanctuary amid the cold winter weather and is a must-do activity while visiting Whitehorse! (2) In the summer/fall season you will travel along the South Klondike Highway to Fraser, BC, connecting with the world famous narrow gauge White Pass railway over the White Pass Summit and into Skagway, Alaska. In Skagway you will have the chance to discover the historic downtown, the gateway for many Stampeders on they way to the Klondike Goldfields. In the evening, after dinner, we will bring you once more to the AuroraCentre to seek views of the stunning Northern Lights. Relax in sheltered comfort, or under the starry sky beside a warm fire at one of our tailor-made aurora viewing locations. Accommodation: Westmark Whitehorse.
Day 3: Departure
After breakfast we will transfer you to the airport, check in for your southbound flight.
