Departures

  • Nov 13, 2015 - Apr 8, 2016

Day 1 Friday

The morning on the day of your tour you will picked up at 10AM in the hotel lobby. As a group we will do some last minute shopping and pick up any items missing from the packing list. Afterwards we drive to the Ranch, 20km South of Whitehorse where we outfit you with your expedition clothing. Enjoy a hot lunch and then be introduced to your 4 legged companions for the duration of the tour. Now you learn the basics of; dog care, checking their feet and shoulders, dog massage, sledding and parts of the sled. Harness your team, hook up and go for your very first run! The trail on this day follows the shores of Fish Lake, climbs and heads into the coastal mountain range to the south. Enjoy the crisp freshness of the day and don't forget to take photos! Curl up at night by the woodstove for a cozy sleep in our wall tents. (L,D)

Day 2 Saturday

While the morning sun lifts slowly over the magnificent horizon, we say good morning to our new canine friends and ensure they are fed, watered and happy. Today we mush the historic trails surrounding the Wall Tent camp. The only sound will be the runners in the snow, the working dogs, and your words of encouragement. This is the day that you begin to know each dog's personality and form a bond that only man and dog can understand. With every stop, praise and show of affection for your dogs, they will learn to trust you and you to trust them. Mt Granger provides you with a spectacular backdrop for your day of exploring. Spend the night in our wall tent camp and go for a snowshoe while watching for the spectacular Aurora. (B,L,D)

Day 3 Sunday

Wake with the sun and greet the day with a hot cup of coffee and a hearty breakfast. On this last day of mushing breath deeply the fresh clean air and take in the rugged landscape one last time as you run your team back towards the Ranch. As you mush over the clean white snow, listen one last time to the quiet whoosh of the runners and the soft panting of the dogs. Keep those memories forever with some last photos of your return trip. Back at the Ranch, we will have a hot lunch. Pack your belongings and enjoy the drive winding down Fish Lake Rd. to Whitehorse for your last night in the hotel. Once we arrive in Whitehorse you will receive your musher diploma (B,L).
