Day 1 Friday


You will be picked up by our van from Whitehorse. Here you have the chance to do some shopping for items that you may need for your trip. You will be shown around as you get a feel for the rich history of the Ranch and Fish Lake area. Then we introduce you to the horses and give you instruction on how to care for and saddle them. We get the pack horses loaded up with all our camping gear and food and say good bye to civilization. The trail leads us steadily up and over Mount McIntyre to our working trapper's cabin near Coal Lake. This base camp is rich in history and is still used in the winter for camping and trapping. Take care of the horses and settle down to a camp style meal. Overnight in Trapper Cabin base camp, set up your tent or sleep by the fire. ( L, D)

Day 2 Saturday


After a hearty Yukon style breakfast the horses are prepared for the day - the pack horses can be left to graze for the day. Today we will ride to Coal Lake and take a short fishing break (lake trout and grayling are easily caught here) before heading up to moose flats and weather permitting to the top of double mountain, were we can have lunch while we take in the breathtaking views below. After lunch we circle a high mountain lake usually seeing moose and caribou. Then we ride the majestic ridges overlooking Coal Lake before heading back down to the cabin for another night. Overnight at Trapper cabin base camp (B,L, D)

Day 3 Sunday


Wake early and try to catch a glimpse of a Yukon summer sunrise, which in June is about the same time as the sunsets – so good luck! Again we pack up the horses to make a long days trip back to the Ranch only stopping for lunch, this time going to the west of fish lake to complete the full circle. Take this time to reminisce about your adventure and again keep your cameras ready for unpredictable wild life sightings. Once we reach the Ranch we will unload the horses and brush them down one last time. Now is the time to say good bye to your guide and your new horse friends. You are driven back to Whitehorse where you will enjoy your last night in the hotel. (B, L)
