Gone to the Dogs



Gone to the Dogs

There’s more than a few Yukoners who share the same story: they first came to the Yukon for a holiday, and now they live in a cabin with a couple of huskies. Don’t worry—you don’t HAVE to move here—but be warned that dogsledding is infectious. Yukon winters are spectacular, and riding with a team of excitable sled dogs is thrilling.

You can experience dogsledding a couple of different ways. Several Yukon mushers offer kennel tours, and some offer half-day, full-day or overnight packages. You’ll meet people who live the dogmushing lifestyle and you’ll learn the basics of running a team. If you’re keen for a more immersive experience, several operators offer weeklong wilderness adventures where you take to the trail with your own team. And for those who prefer to watch from the sidelines, don’t miss the Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race.
