NORTHERN LIGHTS AND ELEVATION SLED DOGS MAKE THE PERFECT YUKON EXPERIENCE

THE ELEVATION HUSKIES ARE READY TO TAKE YOU INTO THE WILD!

MUSHING INTO HISTORY

The nearby village of Carcross is named from the term Caribou Crossing. This area where you will be mushing is also referred to the as the Southern Lakes region. Beautiful lakes surrounded by mountains, the head waters to the mighty Yukon River. It is in this area that gold seekers from over 100 years ago were launching north towards Dawson City, by dog teams in the winter, by boats in the summer. Eventually there was a railway established from the port of Skagway to the interior village of Whitehorse. This railway allowed Whitehorse to become the hub of the Yukon. The railway now abandoned, makes a great modern day dog mushing trail for us to enjoy. The history of the Yukon is amazing and we cannot wait to get into the Yukon Wild with you!

YUKON HOSPITALITY

One of the greatest joys in life is gathering around a warm fire in the woods with new friends, that is why we make a point of taking a layover out on the trail so you can take it all in. Cuddle with your favorite husky, ask questions, tell a story while sipping on a warm beverage. This is Yukon hospitality!
