ITINERARY
Day 1: Arrive in Whitehorse and evening 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. If you wish, there will time today to pick-up your optional extra winter clothing rental kit to use for the duration of your stay. Later, 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: Half day snowmobiling tour

Experience the Yukon wilderness on our half day snowmobile tour in the stunning mountains above Whitehorse surrounding Fish Lake. The roar of the snowmobile engine and the speed of travel along the trail are infectious. Along the trail, the guide will point out the tracks of the many species of wildlife that inhabit the Yukon forest, including the tracks of some large groups of wolves that live on the outskirts of Whitehorse. Trails leading over frozen lakes alternate with routes through dense spruce forests. The half day tour includes a snack and a warm beverage.
Overnight: Whitehorse
Day 3: Kluane snowshoeing and ice fishing

The magnificent Kluane National Park, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979, has breathtaking landscape and scenery. It is even more pristine during the snow-covered winter months. A truly hidden gem among outdoor enthusiast for snowshoeing and ice fishing, we spend the day exploring this area west of Whitehorse along the famous Alaska Highway known for its impressive views. At one of the many lakes at the outskirts of the park we will snowshoe to a perfect spot and setup our day camp for ice fishing. With the help of an ice-auger, we drill a hole in the lake ice which can be from 30 cm to one-meter-thick! Hot drinks will be available to keep us warm. Take in the scenery around you and enjoy the beauty of the northern winter’s day while waiting for the big catch! If we are lucky and catch a fish, your guide will fillet it and cook it on the fire.
Overnight: Whitehorse
