Day 2
Start with a hearty northern breakfast followed by a snowshoe hike. This comparably slower pace will allow you to better identify animal tracks along the way and to appreciate the surroundings in a different manner. Geared up with cameras, a packed lunch and hot drinks, we will head out. Back at the Lodge, after a well-deserved supper we will start the fire in the sauna; for a real Yukon winter experience roll in the snow!

Day 3
We will introduce you to the world of ice fishing. After a snowmobile ride North on the Yukon Quest trail to Frank Lake, we will set up for the day. On route, there will be time to stop and photograph the picturesque Coghlan Creek. A fire will keep us warm while waiting for the big catch. With a little bit of luck, we can cook the catch of the day right on site. Fresh fish is always a tasty treat! In the afternoon, we will head back to our base camp and enjoy a relaxed evening.

Day 4
The following day is fully dedicated to a snowmobile experience. This time, we will head South on the original Yukon Quest trail to the shores of Lake Laberge. On the way we will pass through an area devastated by a forest fire in 1999 which created a very special landscape. There are some beaver houses to investigate, too. The snowmobile ride leads you through forest trails, over small lakes and open fields. We will have lunch on the shores of Lake Laberge before returning to the comfort of the Lodge.

Day 5
On our last day we will have a relaxed start and a hearty breakfast. Take the opportunity to snap any last minute photos as we prepare to break camp and pack the snowmobiles for the ride home.
