Program

Day 1: Arrival Whitehorse

You will be transferred to your hotel located in the heart of the city, not far from the banks of the Yukon River. Whitehorse is small and easy to explore on foot or by vehicle. Later in the evening, you set out to the Aurora Center where you’ll seek the sight of northern lights. You will overnight in Whitehorse.

Day 2: Wildlife Viewing, Hot Springs and Northern Lights Viewing at the Aurora Center

In the late morning, you will discover the sights of Whitehorse, historic and yet trendy, on a city tour with character. Visit the SS Klondike National Historic Site, among the last of the great paddle wheelers that plied the Yukon River system until the 1950’s, the old log church (the oldest building in Whitehorse), and the unique log cabin skyscraper (a three-story tower made completely out of logs). When you’ve seen all these top sites, the main street is perfect for strolling and shopping with its shops' galleries and café’s. You will visit the Yukon Wildlife Preserve for close views of many of the Yukon’s large mammal species including elk, moose, mule deer, caribou, Dall’s sheep, mountain goats, bison, and even the musk-ox of the high Arctic in their natural surroundings.

Not far from the preserve is Takhini Hotsprings where you can indulge yourself in the natural hot springs and relax in a breathtaking winter mountain setting. After a relaxed dinner in Whitehorse, you'll be back on the road again, this time to seek views of the stunning northern lights. You will relax in sheltered comfort or under the starry sky beside a warm fire at one of the tailor-made aurora viewing locations. You will overnight in Whitehorse.

Day 3: Northern Lights Viewing at the Aurora Center

You will have the day free for optional sightseeing and tour. In the winter season, you have the option to try one of the many Yukon winter activities. You’ll get the chance to experience Jack London’s Yukon while experiencing the region’s most popular sport, dog sledding! After a detailed safety briefing and hooking up the dogs, you’ll soon be on your way along the shores of a frozen alpine lake, surrounded by snowy mountains.

Buck and White Fang will spring to mind as you feel the power and endurance of the loveable Alaskan huskies with their steamy breath curling above their ears and the hiss of the sled whisking over the trail. Later in the evening, you set out once more to the Aurora Center where you’ll seek the sight of northern lights. You will overnight in Whitehorse.

Day 4: Departure Whitehorse

You will be transferred to the airport.
