Day 1: We will pick you up at the airport or in your hotel in Whitehorse. A 40min scenic drive will bring you to Takhini River Lodge. You will have time to relax in your elegant bedroom or to join the cozy living room before dinner. Stay ready, the Northern Lights may show up!

Day 2: After breakfast get ready to meet our sled dogs. Our friendly dogs will be happy to show you how much they like their job! You will get all the explanation about dog mushing and if you feel comfortable you will help to harness and hook them up to the sled. You will go for a ride on our 2 passengers sled and get the exciting feeling to be pulled by 5 to 8 powerful dogs! In the evening relax and enjoy a delicious dinner.

Day 3: Pick‐up by skiplane from the Takhini area, a scenic flight awaits you over the Whitehorse plateau, heading into the remote backcountry. After approx. 40 minutes, the plane lands on the frozen airfield of Tagish Lake. You will find yourself surrounded by pristine and untouched wilderness, with the next signs of civilisation miles away. The rustic yet comfortable Tagish Wilderness Lodge will be your home for the next days. You will stay in a traditional log cabin and relax in the comfortable atmosphere of the main Lodge, savouring hearty and lovingly prepared meals every day.

Day 4: On your second day out in the Wild, you will go on a guided snowshoe hike during which you interpret wildlife tracks and learn about the nature in the far North. Later on, you will do some ice fishing – if you are lucky, you might even catch dinner. In the evening, you are welcome to relax in our wood heated sauna.

Day 5: The skiplane will pick you up again and bring you back to Whitehorse. You will be dropped off at your hotel or directly at the airport.
