Land of the Midnight Sun. Summer is absolutely magical in Canada’s Yukon! With almost 24 hours of sunlight and an area larger than Germany, Holland, Denmark and Belgium, but a population of only 32,000 people, it’s easy to see why the Yukon is a popular destination for many travelers looking to re-connect with nature.
Up North Adventures offers a wide range of summer trips and tours for visitors to the Yukon. For people new to the Territory, why not plan to join one of our Guided River Trips? Our small groups and personalized service will ensure you have an incredible northern experience! We can cater to any group size or request.
Up North Adventures offers a variety of guided kayak or canoe day trips. You can choose between half day trips or full day trips. Enjoy the Yukon River paddling from Marsh Lake, the Takhini River or paddle Whitehorse to Lake Laberge.
Cast off into Yukon’s bountiful playground of rivers and lakes. We offer guided fishing trips daily. Species include arctic grayling, lake trout, and northern pike. Whether you want to troll for that monster pike, or enjoy the thrill of fly fishing, our guides have years of experience fishing the Yukon and are eager to share.
The guided mountain bike experience from Up North Adventures offers riders the opportunity to explore and enjoy the wilderness trails around Whitehorse without having to deal with the logistics. We will provide a bike if necessary, a helmet, transportation, a healthy lunch, and a friendly local guide to ensure your one day adventure runs smoothly.
If you are looking to experience the world’s largest non-polar ice field, Canada’s highest mountain or the densest grizzly population – then you should accompany us on our guided hikes through this wonderfully rugged wilderness.
