Yukon Day Trips
Our guided day trips are a great way to experience the Yukon in a shorter timeframe. The adventure will give you a small taste and leave you yearning more Yukon! In addition to the Saddle & Paddle day trip we can also organize guided hiking trips to local trails including Caribou Mountain, and the Sam McGee Trail.
Yukon Saddle & Paddle
The only experience of itís kind in the Yukon. A day trip adventure that combines a scenic horseback excursion with a calming guided paddle on picturesque Spirit Lake.
The rideís duration of one hour will take place through the scenic Watson River Valley. See remnants of mining days gone by, the glacially fed Watson River, panoramic vistas and snow capped mountains. Keep your eye out for wildlife, we occasionally spot Dall Sheep on Caribou Mountain.
Then, itís a short stroll down to the lake where your two-person canoes await for a scenic guided paddle on emerald green Spirit Lake (Spirit Lake boasts the same colours as Emerald Lake but is more secluded and serves as our private paddling paradise). From the lake you have an impressive first row seat to Caribou Mountain (4,800 feet) where wildlife sightings may include Dall Sheep, Bald Eagle and even Moose.
