Description

The one thing that can be absolutely guaranteed year after glorious year is snow! Snow that covers the boreal forest, snow that coats the peaks in white, snow that melts beneath the ski or flies from the snowmobile track, or flutters from the paws of a dog team. From November to April, snow turns Yukon into a winter playground.

Dog mushing, snow-mobiling, cross country skiing and simply relaxing and waiting for the light show to begin – Yukon offers an easy, yet spectacular addition to your winter adventure.

This sample itinerary could be combined with some downhill skiing in BC or Alberta to give the perfect winter holiday.

Day 1: Vancouver or Calgary to Whitehorse
Take the short internal flight to Whitehorse, and plan on a three night stay. This gives you three possible opportunities to view the magnificence of the Aurora Borealis. Stay in downtown Whitehorse, or head out to Yukon’s premier winter resort, located 55 kilometres south of Whitehorse along the shores of the beautiful Marsh Lake. Settle in on arrival, and prepare for a long evening. The display will typically occur between the hours of 10.00 pm and 2.00 am – although of course, this depends on the level of activity at the time of your visit.

Day 2 and 3
You’ll probably want to lie in after a busy evening watching the lights, but no matter, once you are up, take part in numerous winter activities of your choice. Drive a dog sled, try show shoeing or cross country skiing, take a snow mobile along scenic trails, or enjoy a sightseeing flight over breath taking glaciers and mountain ranges. After dinner in the evening, settle in for the evening show as the ghostly lights dance and float all around.

Day 4: Leave Whitehorse
At the end of your adventure, return to the airport for your flight out.

Canada offers so much more than downhill skiing – a winter holiday may have an element of downhill skiing, but the majority of your holiday might be taking part in other winter activities – dog sledding and snow mobiling to name but two.
