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!

Elevation Group Adventure

The Elevation Group Adventure is perfect for larger groups of people who are content with a shorter time on the Sled Runners. The fire will be going with warm drinks and snacks provided. Every 20 minutes, groups of guided sleds will take 2 people per team for a fun mush through the twisty local trails, long enough to say You did It, and short enough so you don’t get too cold!! Your guides will offer guests a brief education about the role of Sled Dogs past to present in Canada and be available to answer any questions. The famous Wild Adventure Yukon Wildlife Gallery will also be available for you to view. And just maybe, there will be cute puppies to help keep you warm around the fire.
