Active Adventure


Discover the treasure of the Yukon landscapes on horseback as you climb majestic mountain ridges, splash across creeks and ride through the peaceful valleys. Witness the transformation of seasons in the colorful autumn landscapes of the Yukon Wilderness as the wildlife prepares for another long winter. Or visit us in June and feel the energy of new summer and enjoy the lengthy days of sunlight. Visit our working Trapper's Cabin and step back in time to the traditional way of survival off the land. This tour offers an abundance of rugged adventure that is sure to strengthen your spirit, yet calm your soul. After a hearty camp dinner each evening, spend the nighttime by the cozy fire. Cozy up in your tent or sleep under the stars.
Although this tour has been run on a private basis in the past, this is our first year to offer a commercial itinerary. In doing this, guests should be aware that we will be looking for new camping sites. This will include some extra trail clearing and site preparation during the tour.
Experienced staff will guide you through the pristine wilderness in the coastal mountains of Southern Yukon. Be prepared to catch some fish along the way for there is nothing like fresh fish over a fire after a long day in the saddle!
The trip will end with a spectacular float-plane trip back to Whitehorse -- every second trip on the departure list will be operated in the opposite direction, with a flight into the wilderness and you ride back out!
