Ever wanted to taste the Yukon? How about the Yukon Brewery! We will visit the Visitor's Centre to learn about the different regions of the Yukon, visit the SS Klondike, a paddlewheeler ship used in the Gold rush and then we will visit the Fish Ladder and Log Skyscraper. We will take you on a refreshing tour through the entire brewery explaining the brewing, fermentation, filtering and packaging components or making the beer of the True North (sample tasting included) and you can choose one of the optional events of the Sourdough Rendezvous festival as listed is you are 'thirsty' for more. After a relaxed dinner in Whitehorse, you'll be back on the road again, this time to seek views of the stunning Northern Lights.

To cap off a great day, we'll travel to the nearby Takhini hot springs. The outdoor hot springs pool provides a warm sanctuary amid the cold weather and is a must-do activity while visiting Whitehorse! You will also have a chance to enter the Hair Freezing Contest.

Day Four


Day free for optional sightseeing and touring. Try one of the many Yukon winter activities. You’ll get the chance to experience Jack London’s Yukon while experiencing the region’s most popular sport, dog sledding! After a detailed safety briefing and hooking up the dogs, you’ll soon be on your way along the shores of a frozen alpine lake, surrounded by snowy mountains. Buck and White Fang will spring to mind as you feel the power and endurance of the loveable Alaskan huskies, with their steamy breath curling above their ears and the hiss of the sled whisking over the trail. Warm refreshments will be offered trailside before you return to Whitehorse, energized from having experienced one of the Yukon’s most unique experiences. Transfer to the airport, check in for your southbound flight.
