Days 2 - 5 – Pack in the Fun and Frolicking
In the Yukon, the outdoor options are endless: Snowshoe up a stunning mountain ridge, cross-country ski down pristine trails, ice fish with a local guide on a remote lake, or dogsled along the Yukon River.
If you want to observe a true northern tradition, cheer on the teams in the Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race. Or, if high action packed adventure is more your style, learn to kite ski at the White Pass or take a snowmobile tour on wide-open alpine trails.
When it's time to warm up but you're not ready to wind down, dance it up at a live fiddling show or mid-winter music festival, sample caribou steaks at a local restaurant, or enter a wild and wacky contest at the Sourdough Rendezvous winter festival.
Day 6 – Mush!
Book a dog sledding day trip with a local musher and gain a glimpse into Yukon's treasured past. Team up the sled and get ready to traverse the trails, just as Yukon's ancestors once did and locals continue to do to this day.
During the run you'll revel in the action and adventure of an activity so close to all Northerner's hearts, its presence can be heard in local myths and lore, and found adorning the pages of Jack London and local writers alike. Let the friendly well-trained dogs win you over – not only by their cute and cuddliness but by their amazing ability to pull the sled down the trail with grace and skill.
