A quirky winter carnival with a true northern flavor, the Yukon Sourdough Rendezvous celebrates the 1890s sourdoughs (veteran inhabitants of Canada’s Yukon Territory), the Yukon and the Klondike Gold Rush. In February Whitehorse buzzes with energy that brings Yukon’s heritage alive and heralds the coming of spring. Enjoy family-friendly and sporting events by day like the pancake breakfast, axe throwing, dogsledding, flour packing and chainsaw chucking, or taste sweets from the Sugar Shack, watch Can Can Dancers, and help elect the next Yukon Rendezvous Queen. At night, the raucous fun gets in full swing with Sourdough Sam competitions, crowning of the festival Queen and roving performances by the world-famous Snow Shoe Shufflers and Rendezvous Can Can dancers before you will join us on our Aurora viewing tour (3 successive evenings) at our custom built Aurora viewing location, far from the lights of the city, so you can experience the Aurora Borealis for yourself – and create your own ‘sourdough’ legends.

Arrival Whitehorse

Transfer to your hotel located in the heart of the city, not far from the banks of the Yukon River. Whitehorse is small and easy to explore on foot or by vehicle. Later in the evening we set out to the AuroraCentre where we’ll seek the sight of northern lights. Overnight Hotel in Whitehorse.

Taste the Yukon Brew & Northern Lights Viewing

Ever wanted to taste the Yukon? How about the Yukon Brewery! We will visit the Visitor Centre to learn about the different regions of the Yukon, visit the SS Klondike, a paddlewheeler ship used in the Goldrush and then we will visit the Fish Ladder and Log Skyscraper. We will take you on a refreshing tour through the entire brewery explaining the brewing, fermentation, filtering and packaging components of making the beer of the True North (sample tasting included) and you can choose one of the optional events of the Sourdough Rendezvous Festival as listed if you are ‘thirsty’ for more. After a relaxed dinner in Whitehorse, you’ll be back on the road again, this time 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. Overnight Hotel in Whitehorse.

Experience wildlife, hotsprings and Northern Lights

We will visit 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 weather and is a must-do activity while visiting Whitehorse! You will also have a chance to enter the Hair Freezing Contest. Take a dip at Takhini Hot Springs, freeze your hair in a crazy style, take a picture, and you could win one of the 3 big prizes! After you return to town you can choose one of the optional events of the Sourdough Rendezvous Festival as listed if your hair still fit under you hat. Later in the evening we set out once more to the AuroraCentre where we’ll seak the sight of northern lights. Overnight Hotel in Whitehorse.

Dog Sled Delights

Day free for optional sightseeing and touring. Try one of the many Yukon winter activities. You’ll get the chance to experience Jack London’s Yukon while experiencing the region’s most popular sport, dog sledding! After a detailed safety briefing and hooking up the dogs, you’ll soon be on your way along the shores of a frozen alpine lake, surrounded by snowy mountains. Buck and White Fang will spring to mind as you feel the power and endurance of the loveable Alaskan huskies, with their steamy breath curling above their ears and the hiss of the sled whisking over the trail. Warm refreshments will be offered trailside before you return to Whitehorse, energized from having experienced one of the Yukon’s most unique experiences. Transfer to the airport, check in for your southbound flight.
