Scheduled Trips

Due to the uncertainties of covid-19 we are primarily just offering custom trips for families or groups of friends for summer 2022. We do have one scheduled departure for a trip (postponed from 2020), that still has some room in it. And we may be offering Mountain Light again for the last week of August. Please  inquire if interested.  If we decide to offer more  scheduled departures as the spring draws nearer we will add them to the list below. 

We  also  offer custom-designed half day and day long excursions (hiking, paddling, skiing or snowshoeing) in the southern Yukon within an hour or two’s drive of Whitehorse. 

Feel free to contact us if you are looking for a custom trip for your own group of family, friends, or colleagues, and if we are not able to accommodate you we can hopefully point you towards others who might. 

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 potential 2024 offerings!

In the meantime I sincerely hope that you find adventures to your liking – ones that  immerse you in the beauty of the natural world, and in the company of fine companions to share your experiences with.

The section of the Alsek River that we will run is entirely within Kluane National Park, in southwest Yukon. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage site, Kluane is also part of the world's largest protected area, which traverses an international boundary, and incorporates three other parks – Alaska’s Wrangell-St Elias and Glacier Bay National Parks, and British Columbia’s Tatshenshini Provincial Park.

Tombstone Mountain, a towering plutonic intrusion, is at the heart of southern Ogilvies. It is also the namesake for Tombstone Territorial Park. This park straddles the Dempster Highway – a narrow strip of gravel in an immense expanse of northern Yukon wilderness. Multiple alpine glaciations have sculpted the rock spires and left behind distinctive features such as cirques, tarns and moraines. The Tombstones are at the southern edge of Beringia, a unique region that was not scoured by continental glaciers during the last ice age.

Join us in this exploration of the sacred, in the land of the midnight sun. Through sound and silence, and in the sublime sub-Arctic light, our senses will awaken as we immerse ourselves in the beauty of the Yukon wilds and  allow the natural world to awaken our innate connection to all beings.  And through music, movement and stillness we can experience the natural world in a profound and joyful way.
