Fullfill your dreams during an unforgetable lodge-based dog sledding adventure in Yukon’s Winter Wonderland. Situated right on a calm side arm of Tagish Lake and amidst the boreal forest, the Southern Lakes Resort is an excellent start for a multi-day winter adventure in style and comfort. You will spend two nights in luxurious cabins at the Southern Lake Resort before you continue even further into the Yukon Wild and spend three more nights at the Tagish Wilderness Lodge. Only accessible by skiplane or dogsled in the winter, the Tagish Wilderness Lodge is your true wilderness getaway in the middle of Yukon’s pristine nature. A beautiful setting with private & cozy log cabins which lets you enjoy the beauty of Yukon’s winter backcountry.

There is no better way to enjoy and embrace the Yukon winter then on a sled pulled by an amazing team of huskies, keen to run. It is completely quiet on the vast lake and you can only hear the sled runners on the hard packed snow and the happy panting of your canine athletes. You will be accompanied by professional mushers, showing you the ropes and sharing their stories about their life with dogs.

This multi-day mushing experience will leave you in awe about the strength and loyal characters of these dogs. During the in-depth mushing experiences, you will form a deep bond with your team, learning how to care for your dogs so they’ll pull you again eagerly the next day.
