On our spectacular sightseeing flight above the area surrounding Whitehorse, you’ll have a chance to get a bird’s eye view the grand landscape of the far north. Explore the rich history of the Yukon on our city tour; watch local wildlife up close at the Yukon Wildlife Preserve and relax in the soothing hot waters and sauna of the local hot springs. You will learn how to mush with your team of huskies as they whisk you away on trails in the winter wonderland.

Feel the rush of driving a snowmobile in the backcountry to magnificent viewpoints. Setout on a beautiful winter lake to discover the tranquility of ice fishing. If you are lucky with a good catch, your guide will fillet it and cook it on the fire for you. Set your tracks during a snowshoeing tour among some of the most impressive landscapes. 

On three evenings of your choice, you’ll travel just outside the city centre, but far enough from the city lights to an idyllic Northern Lights viewing location, the Aurora Centre. The evenings will feature relaxing Northern Lights viewing beside a cozy wood stove or roaring campfire. A winter vacation is truly complete with the chance to view the aurora borealis cascading across the night sky.
