Welcome to Whitehorse, the capital city of Canada’s Yukon Territory. Named the Wilderness City, it is nestled on the banks of the famous Yukon River surrounded by mountains and pristine lakes.

The remainder of our evening is spent at leisure.
Overnight: Whitehorse
Day 2: Snowshoeing and Aurora Borealis Viewing

This morning, we enjoy a delicious breakfast before getting bundled up for an exciting Snowshoeing Adventure! Snowshoeing is one of the best ways to enjoy the tranquility of the Yukon wilderness and to photograph the stunning Yukon landscape. Today we get to strap on a pair of lightweight modern snowshoes and experience the rugged backcountry just like the gold miners, trappers and fur traders of days gone by. We visit a scenic location in the Whitehorse area backcountry. No Yukon winter vacation is complete without viewing the Aurora Borealis cascading across the Yukon night sky. Tonight, we have time to spend at leisure before heading out for our first night of Aurora Viewing. We travel away from the city lights to witness the amazing Aurora Borealis (The Northern Lights), where we stay in warm chambers and look up at the night sky. Throughout our time spent there, we can enjoy hot drinks and late-night snacks.
Overnight: Whitehorse

Day 3: Dog Sledding and Aurora Borealis Viewing

This morning, we head out to enjoy a fun-filled morning experiencing one of the Yukon’s traditional winter forms of transportation ... Dog Sledding! After meeting our teams of Alaskan huskies, you’ll assist in harnessing and hooking them up to the sled, and then we’ll hit the trail! We’ll take a gentle ride through the serene Whitehorse area backcountry, allowing us to take in the majesty and beauty of the Yukon. Tonight, we have time to spend at leisure before another night of Aurora Viewing.

Following a hearty breakfast at our hotel, we spend some time this morning at leisure, before walking over to MacBride Museum, where we will try our hand at Gold Panning. Keep an eye out for any pieces of gold in your pans, as you get to keep what you find! This afternoon, we will make our way to Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre. Situated on the banks of the Chu Nínkwän (Yukon River), the Cultural Centre is a place where we celebrate the heritage and contemporary way of life of the Kwanlin Dün First Nation. Here, we gather in this cultural home to share stories and experiences from ancestors dating back thousands of years, and learn more about indigenous traditions, customs, and way of life. Here we will enjoy some entertainment by local indigenous artisans and performers. Our final night in Whitehorse is spent at leisure, with time to enjoy each other’s company and share our favourite moments of our trip!
Overnight: Whitehorse
