Cheechako Winter

Experience the beauty of the Yukon by dogsled, horseback, snow machine or snowshoes

A 4 day 3 night trip that gives you a great taste of all the fun things to do in the Yukon Winter.

Description We will pick up the guest at the hotel or airport depending on their arrangements. Pick up time will be anytime of the afternoon of the first day. From there it will take us about 25min to reach the Muktuk Lodge.

Guest will check in their rooms and have a introduction to our lifestyle with the dogs. We also go over the winter clothing they guest have and supply them with extra gear.

The guest is then free to explore the dog yard and the surrounding property till dinner is served at 6pm.
The lodge is in a great location to see Northern lights if they are active. Guest are welcome to stay up and watch, we supply hot beverages for the night.

After a nice hearty breakfast it is time to prepare our dog teams for a fun ride . You will learn how to harness your team as well as how to put booties on your dogs. Your guide will give you a brief instruction on how to handle a sled and off we go for a 2 hour ride through the frozen Yukon wilderness. Back at the lodge you are invited to help take care of your team, before enjoying a hot chocolate at a fire place in the lodge.

After lunch at the lodge we will go to the Yukon Wildlife preserve. The Yukon Wildlife Preserve is a unique wildlife viewing property featuring 13 species of northern Canadian mammals in their natural environment. Encompassing over 700 acres with various natural habitats, the Yukon Wildlife Preserve offers unparalleled wildlife viewing and photo opportunities.. where there is a chance to see all ungulets that call Yukon their home.

Before heading back to the lodge we will go for a soak at the Takhini Hot pools.

Just like on the first night you can stay up or set your alarm for every couple hours to check on northern lights. If you should be sleeping and the lights are active we will be waking you up.

On the 3rd day you can choose if you want to spend your afternoon on the back of a snow machine and explore the fish lake area or on the back of a horse and go for a 2hour ride in the fox lake area. We will drive you to the locations and pick you up again.

A hot and hearty home cooked meal will await you once returning from your adventure. After that there is one more night ahead to watch for the skies to light up. The morning of day 4 we head out for our fishing adventures and try our luck in catching some local fish.

There will be enough time for another hot chocolate and a farewell to your dogs before we will bring you back to the airport or a hotel in downtown depending on your travel arrangements.
