We'll welcome you at the airport and transfer you to your Hotel in downtown Whitehorse. The hotel is located within walking distance of all attractions, restaurants, banks and stores. We will have an informational meeting and registration for optional tours at the hotel. Take your time for fitting the winter clothing (optional), shopping and dinner on your own. At 10 pm departure for Aurora viewing. A cozy, heated cabin or wall tent with hot drinks and snacks makes your Aurora viewing even more enjoyable. Return to hotel around 2.30 am.
Your guide will pick you up at your hotel at 9.30am. We will drive for approximately one hour north on the Alaska Highway towards Haines Junction and Kluane National Park. You will be able to see the front range of the St. Elias mountains west of Haines Junction. Your guide will have good historical and cultural knowledge of the area you are travelling through.
We unload the snowmobiles at the trail head. At this point we will give you pointers and hands-on instruction on how to properly and safely ride your snowmobile. If you have already experience, you will be able to drive your own snowmobile (2 person per sled), otherwise your experienced guides will safely drive you (you will have the opportunity to drive a snowmobile with your guide the next day). Our snowmobile adventure starts right then and we travel north into some beautiful pristine mountain country. On the way in, we will be looking at animal tracks and try to identify them. A quick stop for a snack and hot beverage.
After about two hours, we arrive at the base-camp. The camp consists of several log cabins and other outbuildings. You will have the luxury of staying in your own brand new log cabin. Upon arrival, we will get the wood heaters going to warm up the cabins, cut a hole in the ice for water and do a few other chores. We will have lunch at this time. After that, a snowmobile trip around the lake and get you familiarized with the country. We will serve a good hearty dinner and then spend the rest of the evening telling you about the country and stories related to the area we are living in.
Once it gets dark, your guide will show you from where you will be able to see the Aurora best. The incredible large and crystal clear northern sky is now ready to show off one of nature’s most specular phenomenon – the Aurora Borealis.
Your guide was born and raised in the Yukon and has travelled this area for over 30 years. We provide all of the equipment and food necessary for your snowmobile adventure tour. You only have to provide your own gear, outerwear, and personal items.
The next morning, we’ll have a great northern breakfast and then get ready to snowmobile to explore some new country. Our trail to the north of the cabins will be approximately 30 km (return) and will take a good part of the day.
