The westernmost and smallest of Canada’s three federal territories, Yukon (or the Yukon) is often overlooked as a remote, subarctic climate with long bracing winters and fleeting warm summers. But here at Black Tomato, we know that its dramatic wild landscapes paired with an abundance of history and cultural warmth make it the perfect place to explore by land, sea or sky.
DOWN WITH THE DOGS
With Yukon being home to sub-zero temperatures, make sure to wrap up warm before heading out on a traditional dog sledding trip through the ‘Narnia’ surroundings. Be sure to befriend your new canine guides – their loyal and loving natures have earned them a place by man’s side for thousands of Arctic years. Take a deep breath and inhale the crisp fresh air as you marvel at the rugged wilderness, secluded lakes, and dotted tree lines of the Whitehorse region smoothly sliding by – snowy serenity at its finest.
For a true bucket-list adventure, see Canada’s highest mountain and the world’s largest non-polar icefields from the air with an unforgettable Kluane Glacier air tour. The optimum way to see the breath-taking Kluane National Park, keep your eyes peeled and camera ready as your plane glides over Grizzly Bears, Moose, Dall Sheep, Mountain Goats and much more. With the aircraft being frequently used for world class photography of the area’s magnificent glaciers and shimmering ice fields, we know you’re in for a treat.
LOOK UP TO THE SKY
The Yukon is lucky enough to behold one of the world’s most magical natural wonders, the Northern Lights. Gaze up to the stars as to the north a sulphurous green-sheen ripples through the night sky, waving and dancing in front or your eyes. This truly magical experience is a must see, so snuggle up in a blanket with a warm cup of hot chocolate in hand and let yourself be mesmerised – we know this is something you’ll never forget.
