Day Trips

You can fit a lot into a Yukon day. Or maybe it's all the things you aren't doing that make a Yukon experience so memorable. The natural highs of a Yukon adventure aren't limited to those with time for a longer vacation. Depending on how long you're staying, choose an exhilarating Yukon day trip to round out your itinerary.

Perhaps you're here on business or attending a conference, or maybe you're just passing through. Our Yukon operators offer a year-round smorgasbord of day trips, from action-packed adventure outings to cultural experiences to a relaxing tour of local attractions. Many offer custom tours and half-day options.

Summer Sights

From a flightseeing tour at dawn to an evening round of golf under the midnight sun, our long summer days squeeze in more than you can imagine. In a day you can raft the Tatshenshini River or paddle the Yukon River. Tour the Klondike gold fields and take in a music festival. Spend a day being guided through art galleries and historic attractions before dining on flavourful northern dishes.

Winter Wonders

Meet a friendly team of Yukon huskies, try ice fishing, and spend your evening watching for the northern lights. Tour our museums and cultural attractions, and hang out with locals at a café. You'll love the pace of the Yukon in winter.

Yukon Wilderness Expeditions Ltd.

Yukon Wilderness Expeditions Ltd. started in 1996 as Shadow Lake Expeditions, and has been providing quality gear, services and trips under the same Yukon resident ownership since that time. We’ve grown from a whitewater raft livery to include canoes, kayaks, accessory gear, transportation and expediting services for self-guided journeys. We are the northernmost Swift Canoe dealer, and all our gear is expedition quality.

Guided half-day and longer trips, both in the Southern Lakes region and throughout the Yukon, are based on specific interests like history, wildlife or photography, and follow seasonal rhythms.

We believe in providing a professional service, good advice and the best gear. Whether you’re a better paddler on a tougher trip, or simply want great service and gear for your family outing, we can help. Our trips often start where the others stop, and what you see when you’re on the edge of the map can be stunning!
