YUKON & NORTHWEST TERRITORIES

Fly to the Arctic tundra in a private plane, and transfer to a comfortable ride on a dogsled to your luxury hideaway in the heart of nature. You’ll sleep on a bed of fragrant spruce boughs in a prospector’s tent heated with a wood stove under the soft glow of the Northern Lights (aurora borealis). The next morning, go for a very special treasure hunt – in search of a Canadian diamond. Should you find one, you will have achieved the ultimate dream of those who come to the Northwest Territories.


Explore the pingos, ice-filled hills rising out of the flat tundra on the north coast of the Arctic Circle. Take a trip on an inflatable canoe down the rushing South Nahanni River and portage around the Virginia Falls[G1] , twice as high as Niagara Falls.

 

At the Thelon Wildlife Sanctuary, the largest wildlife refuge in North America, you can see grizzly bears, caribou, wolves and musk ox roaming freely in the tundra.


Breathe the fresh air of the Yukon. Smell the scent of the spruce and the good earthy tang of the tundra. Listen to the call of the huskies inviting you to a dog sleigh ride. Take a night-time walk beneath an aurora borealis sky. Retrace the footsteps of the pioneers of the north and talk with people of the region to discover the soul of the Yukon.


As you witness the migration of the caribou and learn about the First Nations culture, you’ll agree that this is a fascinating land of incomparable experiences and outdoor adventures.
