Experience the serene beauty of the Yukon wilderness in winter from your private cabin or villa. After a night in Whitehorse, Yukon’s Capital, you’ll be whisked away to this cozy lakeside resort surrounded by snow-capped mountains. Spend your days exploring the landscape by snow shoe or snowmobile. Join expert local mushers for a full-day husky dogsledding experience, complete with lunch around the campfire. Enjoy a night of guided Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) viewing in Whitehorse followed by more casual viewing around the campfire at your cabin retreat.
