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!
We're located on the shores of Fish Lake which is fished all year round and we have access to a network of hiking trails for your enjoyment.
Interaction with guests
Our ranch manager or one of our employees will greet you when you arrive and show you to your room. There is usually one of our employees or owners available at the ranch. There also may be other guests staying in the Lodge at the time, but there is no employees staying in the Lodge when you are there (the managers have their own residence elsewhere on 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.
NO outdoor Fires of any kind unless permission is given by a staff member. Forest fire risk is often high in the Yukon and there are times when a camp fire is not allowed. In the case that permission is given fires must be in contained in the provided firepits. No Bonfires.
We expect our guests to act independently and respectfully towards staff, other guests, our animals and the environment.
We have some free roaming dogs on our property, some are pets and some are old retired sled dogs who have earned their freedom. Every animal is different and you never know how dogs will react with each other,SO PLEASE LEAVE YOUR PETS AT HOME so our dogs can continue to roam free and happy.
All of our buildings are non-smoking and no pets
