Trek Itinerary

We meet in Vancouver and take a short flight to the city of Whitehorse, the capital of the Yukon. The town is named after the nearby rapids that look like the white mane of a horse. Whitehorse is also known as having the least amount of air-pollution of any city in the world. This will also be our last opportunity to buy supplies and equipment.

A short half-hour drive will take us to the Wilderness Ranch, which is our base for this adventure. 

Today we spend some time getting kitted out with all the cold weather clothing and equipment we require for this epic adventure. 

Then it’s time to be introduced to the sled in our dog sledding 101 time. We will meet the dogs and be allocated our individual teams for the trip.

Over the next few days we will learn the nuances of dog sledding and snow mobiling. We will go out and different tracks and terrains with increasing difficulty as our skill-sets improve. 

Culminating in two days of driving our dog teams and sleds along the famous Yukon Quest Trail including the Dawson River. Camping out in the Yukon Wilderness is a rare and amazing experience that will live with you forever.

Today we say a final, sad farewell to our dog teams and make our way back to Vancouver. For some it’s time to head back to Australia, for others they choose to stay in Canada and hit the ski slopes. 

Whatever you decide personally the Yukon will be an unforgettable highlight of your Canadian experience.
