Imagine yourself immersed in a landscape so wild, and a silence so serene, that you’ll never want to leave. Whether you’re cresting the rise of a mountain ridge, following centuries old trails worn by the hooves of caribou, or paddling through crystal clear waters, over river stones of rainbow colours, a Sila sojourn is about connecting – to place and to self.
.We specialize in providing quality wilderness experiences throughout the Yukon Territory, with a focus on natural and cultural history interpretation, creative expression and personal insight. Whether we are traveling on land or water our trips are designed to combine this opportunity to explore wild and spectacular northern landscapes with time for personal reflection and inspiration. Even though all of our journeys are activity-oriented, some move at a slower pace than others, incorporating practices that help deepen our experience. These may include writing, photography, meditation, music, yoga, and other creative or healing modalities.
2022 was SILA’s 30th anniversary! And to celebrate SILA is taking a sabbatical in 2023. Please check back later this year or early next for 2024 offerings!
Sila is an Inuit word for nature that signifies the life essence of all things. It refers to the power of nature, and to the breath, the life force energy, that circulates through and animates all living beings. Sila is also a Sanskrit word, referring to moral conduct. I feel that Sila is a word which reflects the philosophy of Sila Sojourns. Through travelling in the wilderness, in a respectful and reverent way, we are able to connect to this life essence, both within ourselves and within the world around us.
