Catch the thrill

If walking onto a frozen lake with a fishing rod and an auger doesn’t sound like typical vacation behaviour, you’re right—it’s better. Depending on the year, Yukon’s ice fishing season begins mid-winter and can go well into spring. The days often have clear blue skies, and the sun shining on the snow brightens things up even more. 

If you’re not a regular ice fisher, rent all the gear and wardrobe while you’re here. Then rock that parka-and-shades look—very ice fishing chic.
