Itinerary

Day 0Friday

Welcome to Whitehorse, Yukon! Today you will be picked up at Whitehorse airport and transferred to your hotel. 

Today is a free day to explore the town and relax after your long journey before your adventure begins tomorrow.

Day 1Saturday

The morning on the day of your Canadian dogsledding adventure starts with a picked up at 10am in the hotel lobby. As a group we will do some last minute shopping and pick up any items missing from the packing list. Afterwards we drive to the Wilderness Ranch, 20km South of Whitehorse where we outfit you with your expedition clothing. Enjoy a hot lunch and then be introduced to your 4 legged companions for the tour. Now you learn the basics of; dog care, checking their feet and shoulders, dog massage, sledding and parts of the sled. Harness your team, hook up and go for your very first run! After taking care of the dogs we can enjoy the sauna, have a shower, hot dinner and cozy up by the fire. (lunch and dinner included)

Day 2Sunday

While the morning sun lifts slowly over the magnificent horizon, we say good morning to our new canine friends and ensure they are fed, watered and happy. Then we sit in the comfort of our lodge dining room having breakfast and plan our day. Today we cover approx 35km in distance driving towards secluded Jackson Lake. The only sound will be the runners in the snow, the working dogs, and your words of encouragement. This is the day that you begin to know each dog’s personality and form a bond that only man and dog can understand. With every stop, praise and show of affection for your dogs, they will learn to trust you and you to trust them. Relax in our sod roof sauna before retiring for the night. Overnight at the ranch. (B, L, D included)

Day 3Monday

Today your team will pull you east of the ranch. As we climb in elevation we are heading onto an old abandoned mining road on McIntyre Mountain. Enjoy the rugged landscape of the coastal mountains overlooking the lake. Keep an eye out for wildlife – you never know what you might see! Return to the lodge for the night. Take care of the dogs, then curl up by the fire or linger around the dinner table. There is a gravity fed shower waiting for you in the main lodge. (B,L,D).

Day 4Tuesday

This day takes us towards beautiful Bonneville Lakes, west of the ranch. The trails are narrower here with some challenging ups and downs. The scenery is breathtaking and the coastal mountains are always in view to the south and west. Part of the trip we are above tree line and easily cover 20-30km. A breath of new life will creep slowly into your soul and in harmony with the running rhythm of your team you will enjoy nature like you have never experienced it before. Take it all in and these memories will go with you as you continue your journey home. In late afternoon we drive you to Whitehorse where you spend your last night at the Best Western Gold Rush Inn.(B,L). Here you will receive your musher’s diploma and a shuttle pass.

Day 5Wednesday

After breakfast the Whitehorse shuttle service van takes you to the airport for your flight.

Trip Notes

General

* Any Canadian dogsledding adventure is a challenging but relaxed fun trip! We supply you with the best equipment possible and teach you all the important aspects of mushing.

* To participate you must be healthy, enjoy working with dogs and have a good team spirit. Dog sledding is a comparable physical activity to cross-country skiing, s o you should be in relatively good physical shape.

* The camps have no power or telephone, showers are of basic gravity fed nature and not available in tent camp. Shower and sauna at Lodge.

* We point out, that unforeseeable circumstances such as weather conditions, wind chill factor, extreme temperatures (-30 or lower), condition of the group or illness of the dogs may force us to change this itinerary. The safety of our guests takes precedence and our decisions are final.

* You will need to sign a “release of claims and waiver of liability form”.
