Departure date

Day 1 Vancouver to Whitehorse & Evening Aurora Viewing Depart Vancouver Airport for Whitehorse. Upon arrival transfer (included) from the airport to your hotel in downtown Whitehorse. The hotel is located within walking distance of all attractions, restaurants, banks and stores. After your arrival, there is time for an information meeting, the registration for optional tours, the fitting of winter clothing, for shopping and dinner on your own. This evening depart for your first Aurora viewing. A cozy, heated cabin or wall tent with hot drinks and snacks makes your Aurora viewing even more enjoyable. Return to hotel around 2.00 am.

Day 2 Full Day Sightseeing Today we’ll show you the capital of the Yukon and the surroundings to give you a first impression: During a city tour you’ll see the old train station of the White Pass & Yukon Route railroad, the Log Skyscraper, old Log Church and the paddle wheeler SS Klondike. We’ll also show you some residential areas and stop at the Visitors Reception Centre. On the way to the Takhini Hot Springs we stop at the Wildlife Preserve where you’ll see most of the wildlife seen in the Yukon, such as moose, caribou, bison, dall sheep, big horn sheep, musk oxen and others. At the Takhini Hot Springs we have time for a leisurely swim in the hot waters. After dinner we’ll pick you up at 9.30 pm for your guided northern lights viewing tour. At around 2.00am we take you back to your hotel.

Day 3 Full Day Snowmobiling Your snowmobiling adventure awaits you today. Our van will take you up to Fish Lake, just over half an hour away from the hotel. Here you’ll get your instructions about snowmobile safety and any further instructions you’ll need and off you are across the lake and into some of the most beautiful mountains you can imagine! Lunch will be served on the trail and by late afternoon you’ll return to Whitehorse. At 9.30pm we take you out to your third night of Aurora viewing.

Day 4 Full Day Dog Sledding Another highlight of this tour is today’s full day dog sledding tour along the Takhini River and into the Ibex Valley west of Whitehorse. First you are introduced to the many dogs and instructions will be given about mushing and safety on the trail. Then you are assigned your team of 4 to 6 dogs and off we go on the well prepared trails! Lunch is served along the trail when both we and the dogs take a well deserved break. By late afternoon we’ll be back at the kennel for a mug of coffee or hot chocolate before we return to the hotel. At 9.30pm the last Aurora viewing tour of this adventure begins.
