Guided Snowmobile Tour
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 would not get to easily by foot, snowshoe, or dog team. With a snowmobile, the journey can be an exhilarating ride up and down magnificent mountains or a relaxing tour through the forest and down historic trails.
All Up North Adventures snowmobile tours are guided for your safety. Before commencing any trip, we provide basic training on how to operate and ride a snowmobile safely. The minimum age is 8 and you need to be 16 years for driving a sled. Snow machine helmets are provided and we supply warm high-quality winter outer clothing and boots (if required). We will also leave an itinerary including departure and arrival locations, along with dates and times with the Up North Adventures’ team. Our guides travel with a SAT phone and a well stocked First Aid Kit on every snowmobile tour.
This tour gives you the chance to explore some of the numerous trails in the Whitehorse area by snowmobile. We will start with an introduction to safe snowmobile riding and handling prior to departure. Then it’s off to the trails. If you desire we can stop to take in the scenery or snap some pictures. Snacks and refreshments will be served along the way. Our experienced guide can interpret animal tracks or tell exciting winter lore.
