Dog-assisted hiking tours in the Yukon


Wander over hills, through forested valleys and along crystal clear creeks with some canine companionship on these dog-assisted hiking tours in the Yukon. These husky dogs love to work and will eagerly carry much of the gear and allow you to enjoy this beautiful region without the burden of a heavy pack.  Evenings spent around the campfire are a great way to relax after a day of trekking, and the calls of the loon will be heard in the midnight twilight.  What a great way to see the Yukon.

Your guides are willing to share their experiences and knowledge of this remarkable area north of Whitehorse.  This unique hiking trip begins at Lake Laberge and continues through beautiful country up to Bigfoot Lake... maybe you'll see a sasquatch!

Day 1

 Pick up in Whitehorse. We then drive 45 minutes out the North Klondike Highway to Lake Laberge where we change to a boat for the 5 1/2 mile (9 km) trip across the lake to our wilderness cabins and sled dog kennel. We have a picnic lunch on arrival. After lunch, we take an afternoon hike with some of our sled dogs in the spectacular area overlooking the lake. The dogs help out as pack dogs on our backpacking trip, but today they will just join us for fun and exercise. In the late afternoon, we return home for a cook-out supper at the lakeshore. Overnight at the home cabins.

Day 2

Today we put on our backpacks and head out with the dogs to a beautiful secluded lake. The hike takes us along ridge-tops, through forests, and along little lakes. After an initial climb, it is relatively flat most of the way. All together, it usually takes about 3 1/2 hours of walking time to get to our camp, plus lunch and rest stops. Once we arrive at the lake and set up our tents, you may want to take a swim or relax in camp. Or we may take a late afternoon or evening hike (without backpacks) up a hill behind the camp for a wide view over the area that we hiked through.

Day 3

Our hike takes us through beautiful Yukon scenery back down to the shores of Lake Laberge where we set up camp for the second night. If we are lucky, we may hear wolves, coyotes, or loons as we lie in our sleeping bags. 

Day 4

Our hike takes us through beautiful Yukon scenery back down to the shores of Lake Laberge where we set up camp for the second night. If we are lucky, we may hear wolves, coyotes, or loons as we lie in our sleeping bags. 

Day 5

Days 5-7

These days are spent based from our home cabins, exploring the spectacular Lake Laberge area by foot, boat, and canoe. You may also want to try a summer dog team ride on wheels (if it is not too hot) one evening.
