This unique location on Lake Laberge in the Yukon offers guests a taste of wilderness living as well as a dog-assisted hiking experience with Husky sled dogs. With no road access to the home and cabins on the east side of Lake Laberge, you arrive and leave by boat. 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 while you have an opportunity to bond with the dogs and help with their care and feeding.
