From January 2 to April 5, 2014 you can enjoy this thrilling experience starting at $945. Click here for a full listing of prices and dates. Perfect for those who don’t have a lot of time to get away (one-day trips) or for those who want to immerse themselves in the experience (trips of one month or longer).
After basic instruction on driving dog sleds, you will head out on the lake with the dog teams. Then, you will indulge in a campfire lunch on the way home.
Guests stay overnight in a wilderness cabin, or, for those who are more adventurous, a trapper-style wall tent heated by a wood stove is available.
Located 50 kilometres north of Whitehorse, there’s no road to the shore of the lake — access is only by dog team or snow machine in winter and boat or canoe in summer.
Vacay.ca Recommends the Chilkoot Trail
When you’re near Whitehorse, be sure to hike the Chilkoot Trail. Vacay.ca’s Katie Marti accomplished this feat, taking on the historic path near the borders of the Yukon Territory and through parts of Alaska and British Columbia.
Marti writes: “Hiking the Chilkoot Trail is more than a 53-kilometre walk in the woods. It’s a trek so steeped in historical reference and artifacts that it’s been recognized as a National Historic Site in Canada and a National Historic Landmark in the United States. The bulk of the actual stampede took place between 1897-98, after an American named George Carmack and his brother-in-law Skookum Jim struck gold in Bonanza Creek, just south of Dawson City, Yukon.”
