Whitehorse, the capital of the Yukon, has a small population compared to cities elsewhere and is often referred to as “the wilderness city.” One can gaze out from the tops of the local mountains over a sea of peaks in all directions, punctuated by river and creek valleys, home to a wealth of animal life. Join us as we explore with you a small piece of this expansive wilderness.
Whether you are in Whitehorse visiting friends or family, or on a business trip, allow us to organize a day (or multi-day) long journey for you. We can design one to specifically suits your interests, fitness level and experience. If you live here, and want to organize some outings for your visiting friends or family members, contact us to see what we can offer. Keep in mind that we are primarily available for these shorter sojourns in the autumn, winter and spring, before our busy summer guiding season gets underway.
We can drive for as little as 10 minutes to start our journey, or for up to 2 hours to explore further afield:
Options near Whitehorse include hiking, snowshoeing or skiing on the trails of Miles Canyon, Chadburn Lake, Grey Mountain and Mt MacIntyre.
Within 30 to 45 minutes of town we can hike, ski, snowshoe, or paddle on or in the vicinity of Fish or Annie Lakes, the Yukon River, Goldenhorn Mountain or Mt. Lorne.
Within one to two hours we can explore hiking and ski routes in the Coast mountains off the Alaska Highway in Kusawa Territorial Park and Kluane National Park, or off the South Klondike Highway towards Carcross, Yukon and Skagway, Alaska. Paddling options include Kusawa lake and the Takhini River to the east, and Bennett Lake to the south.
PRICE: Per person prices vary depending on group size, length of outing, equipment needed, and driving distance from town. Contact us to let us know what you are interested in and we can give you some location and price options that suit your interests and time frame. And if we cannot help you we can try to put you in touch with another day tour operator that can.
