Day  Yukon Quest Trail - Sled Dog Tour
01
Arrival at the Airport in Whitehorse. You will be picked up by our van and we will make a short tour to show you the town of Whitehorse. Here you also have the chance to do some shopping. Afterwards we drive along the Alaska Highway through a frozen winter world until we reach, after 50 km, the basecamp at Blue Kennels. You will move into your cozy cabin, light the stove and relax. The dogs will be waiting to meet you. You want to know what a bootie is? Well you learn it today. We show you how to harness the dogs, give you an instruction on how to drive the sled and equip you with your winter gear. Depending on the weather we hook up the dogs and go for a short first run. Three dogs will pull you on this first day. After taking care of the dogs we will enjoy a hearty meal. You might want to take a sauna or just relax on the couch beside the stove, and of course listen to the dogs howling outside.
02
While the morning sun slowly lifts over the horizon we will prepare for our first daytrip after breakfast. We feed and water the dogs and harness them up at around 11 a. m. We will cover about 40 km in distance, mainly going along a flat training trail and over the frozen Takhini River. Just the slight sound of the working dogs and runners in the snow will be with us for that day. You will get to know your dogs and start to form a personal relationship. With every stop, and praise for the dogs, they learn to trust you and you to trust them.
03
Today we load our sled with some gear and head towards beautiful Kusawa Lake. This used to be an old trading route of the Champagne Aishihik Indians. We easily cover between 40 and 60 km. Slowly a new feeling of life will creep in. In harmony with the running rhythm of your team you will enjoy nature in a way never experienced before. The evening we spend again in our cozy log cabins. Time for a shower? Enjoy and relax in our sauna
04
For three days you will leave behind the last remnants ot civilization and head out for an unforgettable adventure. Your team of Huskies will pull you and your loaded sled to remote 37 Mile Lake, along the Yukon Quest Trail, the toughest Sled Dog Race in the World. Driving across unnamed lakes we will reach our preset walltent camp. Everything we needing will be packed with us on the sled. We go out to cut some firewood, cook together on the woodstove and share stories. If the group decides, we might even take a few of our new four legged friends in the tent. We have a great chance to meet Elk or Caribou.
05
From Camp we start a daytrip further down the Quest trail. If the weather allows there is a possible ascent to the Sifton Range. This offers stunning views in all directions. Aishihik Lake to the west, Whitehorse to the east, Braeburn to the north and the impressive Costal range to the south. The evening we spend in our trappers tent, where warm tea or soup will be waiting on the stove. In this surrounding the meaning of freedom will get a new dimension.
06
Today we will head to 57Mile Lake, a high mountainous lake. We visit old Annie Neds cabin, drive through high alpine landscape with its very own charm. Your driving skills will be tested, as a few trails demand your attention. The evening is spend in our wall tent again, or if you wish we can head for the base camp again with the log cabin and sauna waiting. By now you and your team will travel in harmony.
07
After a last mushers breakfast, we will start for our final day of mushing. Way to early we will have to return to civilization and most of all, you will have to leave your new friends, the dogs, behind. In the evening we will drive you to Whitehorse where you will spend your last night in a downtown Hotel.
08
After breakfast the hotel van will bring you to the airport for your southbound flight·. Or better yet, to complete your Yukon winter experience, by joining another tour offered.
