Our longest expedition, this 350-kilometre odyssey has a pace of its own. After having integrated the principles of dog sledding and caring for your dogs in the first two days, we’ll pack and leave for 12 days straight.
Out in the backcountry, we’ll travel and live like the first explorers did, mushing our way across the land and stopping at strategic locations to rest and explore. You’ll discover a wide diversity of scenery ranging from frozen lakes and alpine valleys to steep-sided glacial valleys, boreal forests and high mountain lakes. The Yukon will reveal some of its hidden secrets to you; places rarely visited. As we’ll delve into wilderness, you’ll build your bush-living skills up by learning further about mushing dogs, identifying local wildlife tracks and plants and participating in unique activities such as trapping and winter surviving workshops, interpretation of glacial landscapes and ice fishing. As there are 11 nights on the trail (eight in a tent and three in a cabin), there will be good chances of seeing the vibrant northern lights. This is the “Mushing ++” expedition where you will develop a uniquely intimate relationship with your dogs and the pristine nature surrounding you.
