Let adventure into your life

I am excited to take you one step further to a place you would not dare venturing on your own. Growing happens right at this fine line, where we push the boundaries of what we know and are familiar with.  On a wilderness trip growing happens physically when you keep paddling even if you are straining muscles you weren’t aware of or mentally when you overcome your fatigue to step up to help prepare dinner or you overcome your fear of the wilderness (including bears!).

I am writing these lines from my home in Whitehorse. Spring is still a distance away for us. Not too bad if you like all type of skiing as I do!

I have been busy over the last 2 months updating my programs for the summer. The urge to take up travel is evident! So, I have to report, my summer has already been booked well.

Arctic Ground Squirrel can often be observed in the alpine

Cabin bookings at our remote location at Dalayee Lake are up as well.  Please inquire with your favourite date and I hope we can schedule you in!

There are a few trips that you can come on board if you like to visit the Yukon this summer:

Dempster Highway Birdwatching

Highlights of this trip include birdwatching and nature observations in one of the best birdwatching spots of the Yukon. Along the Dempster highway we will see migrating birds and local residents close to the Arctic Circle. You don’t need to be a hard-core birdwatcher to enjoy this trip. I will take only a small group so that everyone gets to see and hear the birds as we come across them. This time of the year the camping will be enjoyable as there are no mosquitos out yet! The level of hiking will be discussed with the participants.

Alpine flowers and bird watching go hand in hand along the Dempster Highway

Kluane National Park: Day hiking (spring and fall) There are a lot of stunning hikes possible in Kluane National Park. In spring the highlight will be flowering plants! In fall we will enjoy fall colours and the northern lights. This area is also known for good wildlife watching and of course the park is home to the highest mountain in Canada – Mt Logan. Even from our hikes we will see a lot of the towering snow- and ice-covered mountains of the Kluane Icefields. Embark on a sightseeing flight to see Mount Logan!

Teslin River from Johnson’s Crossing to Hootalinqua: 1 spot left. This is the ultimate introduction into paddling! No paddling or camping experience needed, I will introduce you to all of it and will make sure you feel comfortable in the wilderness! At the end of the trip, we will take a floatplane ride back to Whitehorse. This is definitely a spectacular way to end a trip!

In Hootalinqua the canoes are strapped top the floats of the plane

The Coast Mountains Trekking, the Cottonwood Trekking and the Pelly River Canoeing are fully booked.

For this summer I also offered customized trips for small groups. One of these trips will bring a group into Tombstone Territorial Park at the end of August for some camping nights in all the stunning locations of the park. Another private trip with four Swiss mountain enthusiasts will take place in Kluane National park.
