ITINERARY
Day 1: Arrive in Whitehorse and Aurora viewing

Welcome to Whitehorse, named the Wilderness City, is nestled on the banks of the famous Yukon River surrounded by mountains and pristine lakes. In 2011, the World Health Organization ranked Whitehorse #1 for cleanest air in the world. Whitehorse got its name when gold seekers thought the Miles Canyon’s wild rapids resembled the manes of charging white horses. Later this evening at 10.30pm you will depart for Northern Lights viewing at the Aurora Centre in the comfort of insulated yurts with a steaming hot drink. The location has pristine, unhindered views across the horizon which lets you enjoy the phenomenon of the Aurora Borealis to its fullest. When you stand under the Yukon sky surrounded by mile upon mile of Yukon's wilderness, you cannot help but think of what the ancients, our ancestors might have thought as they too stood spell bound by the Northern Lights. It's little wonder that they believed the Northern Lights to be the spirits of the departed or the Gods themselves. Yukon is one of the best places on earth to see the northern lights “colourful bands of light that dance in the dark night sky”. While the northern lights occur year-round, summer's near-constant daylight makes seeing them next to impossible. In the autumn, winter and early spring, however, clear, dark nights lend themselves to stunning displays.
Overnight: Whitehorse
Day 2: Whitehorse Food Tour

On this 2.5 hour long Food Tour, you will treat your taste buds to a northern adventure and discover some of Yukon’s unique culinary experiences from chocolatier to brewery, from coffee roast to bagels, from tea to maple syrup. You will sample some of Yukon’s finest foods while visiting hidden gems only locals know. The afternoon is set aside for you to explore the capital of the Yukon on foot. We suggest a trip to the Visitor Centre to learn about the different regions of the Yukon and pick up some maps. We suggest a walk to the riverfront Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre. This award-winning building celebrates the heritage, culture and contemporary way of life of Yukon's Kwanlin Dun First Nations people. Whitehorse has great shops, galleries and museums that are open all year. Take a stroll down Main Street or spend time with the locals in the lively cafés. Keep an eye out for locally sourced food and drink products, you will be surprised at the culinary scene in this northern town.
Overnight: Whitehorse
Day 3: Kluane National Park and Mount Logan sightseeing flight (5 hours)

A spectacular flight from Whitehorse to the heart of Kluane National Park. A World Heritage Site since 1979, Kluane National Park & Reserve is home to lush valleys, glaciers with grizzly bears, as well as mountain goats, moose and wolves. Mount Logan, Canada’s highest peaks, rises to 19,545 ft (5960 mtrs) above sea level and the land is surrounded by the world’s largest ice-fields 0 outside of the polar regions.
Overnight: Whitehorse
Day 4: Flight from Whitehorse to Dawson City with Dawson City Tour

This morning, you will take a short Air North flight to Dawson City, an eclectic and vibrant northern community on the banks of the Yukon River, possibly soon to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site (currently under review). The town is a mix of First Nations heritage and Gold Rush history, blended with an active gold mining industry as well as a thriving arts scene. Dawson's history includes Beringia, the Ice Age period which formed the unique landscape, the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in indigenous people who have called this place home for centuries, as well as the Klondike Gold Rush, that put this town on the map worldwide. Dawson today is a colourful community that still has the look and feel of a wild-west frontier town, with personalities to boot. Miners, artists, wanderers, and the Indigenous People, all call this place home. You will join an informative local guide on a minibus drive tour of Dawson City and the goldfields. Time permitting, you will try and include gold panning at Claim No. 33 - guaranteed gold! You will also experience Dawson City and the Yukon Valley from the top of the Midnight Dome, a great viewpoint with stunning photo opportunities and breathtaking views. Dawson City is rich in history that goes back much further than just the Klondike gold rush. Spend the second half of your day at the Dänojà Zho Cultural Centre to learn about the first people on this land, and from there take in one (or all!) of the town’s three museums, each offering a different aspect of Indigenous culture and history. You are in Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in country and generations of Hän travelled a thousand kilometres every year to take advantage of the riches of the land. This evening, for a whooping good time, we suggest an evening at Canada's very first gambling hall and saloon, the Diamond Tooth Gerties Gambling Hall! Since 1971, Diamond Tooth Gerties has been wowing visitors with its unique Klondike period style can-can entertainment. Complete with casino games, nostalgic tunes, and three different can-can inspired shows, it will be a night on the town just like the original stampeders that you will not forget!
Overnight: Darwin
Day 5: Tombstone Park by Land and Air Day Tour

Our most popular summer experience exploring the raw beauty of Tombstone Territorial park by land and by air. Tombstone Territorial Park's 2,200 sq. kms protect a unique wilderness of rugged peaks, permafrost landforms and abundant wildlife, all reflected in a rich First Nations culture. The area's Hän name means "ragged mountain land." The park is a legacy of the Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in Land Claim Agreement and lies within their Traditional Territory. The Dempster Highway bisects the park and provides an opportunity to view stunning arctic tundra landscapes and wildlife and access to hiking areas. The concentration of wide ecological niches has resulted in a diverse collection of flora and fauna uncommon at this latitude.
