Yukon Fall Colour Tour
Northern Lights and Fall Colors what more can you ask for
We can top that off with some amazing Huskies and some late summer paddling.
Join us for 3 nights and we will show you why the Yukon is such a special place to life. By late August the leaves start to turn the forests into golden carpets.
The mornings are cool again which will give our dogs their energy back and we will take them for a training with either on an ATV or a fat bike, the choice is yours.
By the afternoon it will be nice and warm for our paddle along the Takhini river.
After a delightful dinner it will be still light enough to go for a little stroll and watch the beavers getting ready for winter.
And last but not least the Northern Lights. The night skies will be dark enough again to see them, and this time of year you might even get to see them reflect in the Takhini River.
Your fall adventure starts right here.
