Sky High Wilderness is an "off the grid" Ranch -NO electricity,NO wifi and limited cell service. We have wood heated cabins, propane lights, outdoor toilets and a gravity fed shower. Our Raven Yurt is the perfect base for your adventure in the Yukon! This yurt is located in the main area of our ranch nestled in a grove of spruce trees.

The space

Our ranch is "off the grid" - so no electricity, no running water, limited cell service and outhouses! This is the true Yukon experience! This yurt has lights powered with propane and a small 2 burner stove top and is heated with an oil fireplace. We provide you with water for drinking and washing up and the kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook a meal. We aren't located near any grocery stores so don't forget to pick up groceries before you come to the ranch! This yurt has two single beds and comfortably fits 2 people, we can also provide a cot for a 3rd person at an extra cost.

Guest access

In the winter time we run dogsled tours from our ranch, in the summer time the dogs rest and you can join one of our guided horseback tours. If you would like to know more just let us know when you book!

Interaction with guests

Our ranch manager or one of our employees will greet you when you arrive and show you to your yurt. There is usually one of our employees or owners available at the ranch.

Other things to note

Our ranch is one of the best spots in Whitehorse to view the Aurora! We're at a higher elevation so quite often out of the clouds and we also don't have any light pollution. There are also plenty of trails all within walking distance and great for hiking in the summer and skiing and snowshoeing in the winter.

We loved it! We wanted to get off the grid and find peace and quiet and this is it. The description is accurate: no running water or electricity or wifi, which is just what we wanted. Short walk to fish lake and it is so quiet at night! Would definitely stay here again!

We arrived late back from The Chilkoot trail and missed our rental car, we called Sky high wilderness and they came and rescued us - took us for groceries and into town the next day to get our car - you can't ask for more than that !!!! The Yurt was lovely we loved it with the windows rolled up, it transforms it/// lovely to see the friendly horses wandering around - It all was a great experience and we are happy we have had our Yurt experience in the wilderness

I had an absolutely wonderful experience at Sky High Ranch. The setting is stunning and the staff was friendly and helpful. This is a perfect remote outpost, off the grid, no electricity or indoor plumbing. Yet, there is always activity on the ranch, from the dogs to snow machine tours. I had a miraculous experience!

The yurt was tucked away in the snowy woods and on our arrival, the stove had warmed the place up and everything was ready for our arrival. I never met or saw the person who ran the place, though my friend did. It was off season when we were there though.

The Raven Yurt experience was great! We had everything we needed in the yurt to be comfortable and our host was willing to answer any questions or provide us with whatever was needed. She was even kind enough to turn on the stove to warm up the yurt in advance of our arrival. And we really appreciated having the option of arranging for pick-up in Whitehorse and a drop off at the airport for our flight home. There was also amazing hiking nearby! It was a highlight of our time in the Yukon.
