Duration: 4 Days
Getting Started
Season: Winter

Tuck yourself into a cozy Yukon cabin and fall into a long-deserved spell of relaxation. Spend quality time with friends around the fireplace and enjoying soul-warming meals at the dinner table. Curl up with a book, and be sure to keep checking out the window. Then step outside to catch the unimpeded glory of the awesome northern lights. During the days, explore the breathtaking landscape on snowshoe, snowmobile or cross-country skis.

Day 1 – Arrive, Settle In, Exhale

Welcome to Whitehorse, the Wilderness City!

While near the airport, spend some time at the Yukon Beringia Interpretive Centre, Canada's only museum dedicated to the ice age. The Yukon Transportation Museum is also nearby. Both offer excellent views of two very different eras. Both museums have shorter winter hours so it’s a good idea to check their websites. Pick up your pre-arranged rental vehicle, gear rentals and other essentials, and then retreat to the haven of your remote cabin. 

Days 2 - 3 – Cozy Up!

The toasty fireplace and warm wood walls are just the start of the cozy comforts inside, but the open space and fresh air tempts you outside. Head off exploring - whether on snowshoe, cross country skis, or snowmobile, pristine forest trails begin right at your back door. At night, let the breathtaking beauty of the northern lights entrance you.

Day 4 – Recharge in Whitehorse

Bid adieu to your cabin and head back to the small but hopping city of Whitehorse. Sip on a latte at an artsy café, chat with interesting locals, or peruse our galleries and gift shops. Arrange a half-day dogsled adventure for another look at the glistening Yukon wilderness. Breathe in the brisk air and head back recharged.

How to Get Here

The Yukon is accessible by air and highways, and by sea via nearby Skagway, but for a quick winter getaway, boarding a commercial jetliner is the travel mode of choice. Major commercial airlines connect Whitehorse with Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa, Kelowna, and Yellowknife.
