Cathers Wilderness Adventures is a two-generation family business offering year-round wilderness experiences.
In winter, we welcome guests for dog sledding. In summer, we offer cabin-based stays (with guided day activities) at our wilderness home on Lake Laberge, as well as camping trips: hiking and backpacking supported by pack dogs, and canoe or boat camping along the historic Yukon River.
Located 30 miles (50 km) north of Whitehorse, there is no road to our shore of the lake. Access to our home and cabins is by dog team or snow machine in winter and by boat or canoe in summer. Our trips focus on small groups or individuals and are personally guided by our family. Our experience includes 30 years living year-round in this spectacular location, guiding since the mid-1970’s, and thousands of miles of travel in the Yukon wilderness - camping, guiding, sled dog racing, and hauling supplies to our home.
Located on the scenic banks of the Takhini River 20 minutes outside of Whitehorse, you can explore true wilderness.
Trust our 2 year consecutive Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence award voted by clients to provide adventurists with a retreat of a lifetime.
