  Yukon Sled Dog Adventure  
Mush your own dog team through the winter wonderland of the Yukon Territory. The adventure is a challenging fun trip not only for experienced dog sled riders but also for daring beginners of the exiting sport. We supply you with the best possible equipment and our guides teach you in all the important aspects of mushing. This is not a survival trip, but you will learn important aspects on how to handle your husky team.
01 Whitehorse
Arrival at the Airport in Whitehorse. Transfer to the base camp. We show you how to harness the dogs, give you an instruction on how to drive the sled and equip you with your winter gear. Depending on the weather we hook up the dogs and go for a short first run. You might want to take a sauna or just relax. Dinner & overnight.
02 Base Camp
Prepare for the first daytrip after breakfast. We will cover about 40 km in distance, mainly going along a flat training trail and over the frozen Takhini River. Just the slight sound of the working dogs and runners in the snow will be with us for that day. Return to the base camp. Overnight.
03 Base Camp
Today we explore the beautiful Kusawa Lake area. This used to be an old trading route of the Champagne Aishihik First Nations. We easily cover between 40 and 60 km. Slowly a new feeling of life will creep in. In harmony with the running rhythm of your team you will enjoy nature in a way never experienced before.
04 - 06 On the Trail
For three days you will leave behind the last remnants ot civilization and head out for an unforgettable adventure. Your team of Huskies will pull you and your loaded sled to the remote 37 Mile Lake area and trap cabins, along the Yukon Quest Trail. Driving across unnamed lakes we will reach our preset wall tent camp. Everything needed will be packed with us on the sled. We go out to cut some firewood, cook together on the woodstove and share stories. Watch for the Northern Lights while they are dancing across the clear Polar sky. Overnights: in heated wall tents
07 Return to Base Camp - Haines Junction
After a musher’s breakfast we head back to the base camp. Afternoon transfer to Haines Junction. Here we move in our second base camp and spend the first night in a hotel with a hot shower and a bar.
08 - 09 Base Camp
During these days we explore the area on a variety of trails below and above the treeline in the shadows of the majestic Kluane Mountain Range. We may see Moose and other wildlife in their natural habitat. Overnights: Cabins at the base camp.
10 Base Camp - Whitehorse
A last trip to Little Otis Lake near the Bear Creek Summit. A narrow winding trail leads towards this small untouched wilderness lake. After returning back to the base camp it is time to say good bye to their new four legged friends. Transfer to Whitehorse and overnight at a hotel.
