Winter in the Yukon is something every outdoor enthusiast needs to experience! The magical Northern Lights dancing overhead, the silence of snow covered trees, the feeling of floating on snowshoes or the adrenalin rush of a snow machine…the Yukon is a true 4 season outdoor playground!
Our winter trips and tours are designed to safely and enjoyably introduce people to the incredible snow covered scenery of the Yukon back country. Come Snowshoeing for ½ a day to get some exercise or plan a back country Snowmobile Adventure that lasts 5 days! For some people, the idea of catching lunch while Ice Fishing or an evening of Aurora Viewing are the perfect cure for the winter blues. Whatever you decide, Up North Adventures can help you discover the awesome beauty of our Winter Wonderland!
Let us take you out for an ice fishing adventure on one of the beautiful lakes in the Whitehorse area. The Yukon is the Land of Plenty when it comes to rivers and lakes. The choices are endless and the fishing is excellent.
Snowshoeing is a lot like hiking but allows you to go places you could not walk to without these big “shoes” under your feet – they make sure you don’t find yourself under the snow but always stay on top of it! Come join us in exploring the Yukon’s winter wonderland by snowshoe, a great way to enjoy our wilderness.
Spend 3 days traveling the Yukon Quest Trail on a guided snow machine tour. Then step back in time and try your hand at the traditional transportation of the north. Spend your days mushing your own team through the pristine wilderness of the Fish Lake area.
Experience the Yukon’s back country first on your snow machine, then with your own dog team. Learn the traditional and modern way to explore our wintery trails. See the beauty and the rugged wilderness in this area and appreciate the courage, will power and sheer determination of those who race the toughest dog sled race in the world – The Yukon Quest. This trip combines your 3 days of snowmobiling with more days of mushing.
Snowmobiling is a fun and exciting pastime for many Yukoners young and old! Snowmobiling through the Yukon’s unspoiled wilderness, will bring you to places you can not get to easily by foot, snowshoe, or dog team.
The Aurora Borealis is one of the most beautiful natural phenomena one can experience and chances are excellent that you will see this beautiful display if you come for a visit in the winter. If you are only in town for a short time, take advantage of our beautiful Northern Lights centre. They provide perfect Yukon Northern Lights viewing conditions!
