Experience winter as it was meant to be in the Yukon! The highlight of this holiday is a 3-day snowmobile adventure with cozy, private and exclusive cabin-accommodation and authentic Arctic activities along the way through some of the beautiful, remote backcountry of the southwest Yukon. This journey takes you far from the city lights, giving you an excellent chance of seeing the northern lights at their best. You will experience the lifestyle of northern bush living, based out of your warm and comfortable, private log cabin located on the shores of a mountain lake. You will also get to try your hand at ice fishing and snowshoeing across the frozen lake!
Your guide was born and raised in the Yukon and has traveled this area for over 30 years. We provide all of the equipment and food necessary for your snowmobile adventure tour. You only have to provide your own gear, outerwear, and personal items.

Itinerary

Day 1: Pickup in Whitehorse & Snowmobiling
We will pick you up in the morning. From Whitehorse we will drive north on the Alaska Highway towards Kluane National Park and on the way you will be able to see the front range of the St. Elias mountains. The guide will have good historical and cultural knowledge of the area you are traveling through. After we unload the snowmobiles at the trailhead we will give you hands-on instruction on how to properly ride your snowmobile. Then we start our snowmobile adventure and travel north into some beautiful mountain country. On the way we’ll be looking for and identifying animal tracks and will stop for a snack and hot beverage. After about two hours, we arrive at our cabin where we stay for the next 2 nights. You will have the luxury of staying in your own brand new, private and exclusive log cabin. Upon arrival, we’ll get the wood heaters going to warm up the cabins, cut a hole in the ice for water, do a few other chores and have lunch. After that, we’ll snowmobile around the lake and get you familiarized with the country. We will serve a good hearty dinner and then spend the rest of the evening telling you about the country and stories related to the area we are living in. You can enjoy the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) in complete seclusion under the northern sky all night long. Overnight at Lake Cabin.
Day 2: Snowmobiling, Snowshoeing & Ice-Fishing
The next morning, we’ll have a great northern breakfast and then get ready to snowmobile north to see some new country. Our trail to the north of the cabins will be approximately 30 km (return) and will take a good part of the day. We’ll go as far as “the look-out” – an amazing scenic viewpoint, far above the valley floor, where you can see the mountainous country all around for many miles. You can also see the valley of the famous Dalton Trail from the look-out. We’ll have lunch “on the trail”. If it’s very cold out, we’ll make a campfire to keep warm while we’re having lunch. After we get back to the cabins, time permitting, we will either go on a snowshoe trail or go ice-fishing – your choice. Please note that exact timing of most activities are weather-dependent. Another night in complete remoteness let’s you enjoy the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) under the northern sky. Overnight at Lake Cabin.
Day 3: Snowmobiling & Return to Whitehorse
After we have breakfast, we’ll have time for a short snowshoe hike or some ice-fishing before we get organized to head back out to the highway where our vehicle is. Return to Whitehorse in the late afternoon.
