Tours

Day Trips

For you we plan unusual and exciting day trips. From easy hikes with great views and delicious, hearty Yukon-style lunch to multi-activity day tours with great opportunities for unusual Yukon travel photos!

Experience what YOU want!

Hug trusting sled dogs, ride on calm horses, learn interesting wilderness skills, and paddle a canoe on a calm lake. Take a fascinating floatplane flight, ride the spectacular historic railway, come with us on interesting sightseeing tours, observe First Nation carvers at their shops, bake fresh bread at the campfire, and perhaps see stunning Northern Lights ... explore and learn new things!

Multi-day Tours

In the north, we travel up high to the Arctic coast, with contact with locals that let you share their lifestyle. They want you to convey their values, and show you the beauty of their land, their Yukon. It is important for them to tell you their story and to let you participate in their culture and their lives - an unusual experience, intense and educational.

In the south, we experience the history of the gold rush in the Yukon - with all-wheel drive vehicles and a historic railway, by floatplane and on foot. This is a tour with many easy but interesting activities and intensive contact with locals at the original scenes of the Yukon gold rush.

WINTER IN THE YUKON

A wonderful time of silence, peace, serendipity…

Equipped with warm Canadian winter clothes, you put in new snowshoe tracks in the fresh snow. At a remote frozen lake, you try your luck with ice fishing - and perhaps soon fry your fish on an open fire. And would not you like to experience how much fun it is with a husky team out on frozen lakes and rivers in the Yukon wilderness?

According to your wishes, we are planning for you day trips or multi-day activities: a flight with a bush plane on skis - landing on a frozen lake and enjoy a picnic, a ride on an all-wheel drive vehicle on the snowy South Klondike Highway to the White Pass on the border with Alaska. In addition, we hike with headlamps to the campfire at the viewpoint, waiting for the fantastic Northern Lights.

Yukon Quest

The 1,000 mile dogsled race – and you are there! In the middle of it!

Experience with us this amazing race in the Yukon winter wilderness as your individual VIP adventure.

Werner

Werner Walcher

In February 1982, I visited the Yukon for the first time - and was immediately charmed by this vast, wild and almost uninhabited part of Canada. The unusual beauty of this country and the warm and friendly Yukoners fascinated me.

I kept coming back to the Yukon, in summer and in winter. Since 1995, I have been living here with my family. Therefore, I know the country and the people of the Yukon very well.

My great passion for this wild and adventurous country – this is what I would like to share with you.

As a licensed Yukon Wilderness Guide, I offer you real and unusual Yukon adventure - with a comprehensive and personal service - and tailored to your wishes.

Come as a stranger – leave as a friend.

Testimonials

Werner, Thanks for the great adventure! Joe and I really appreciated the day by day personalized agenda. it really allowed us to enjoy Yukon fall colours at their best! We also enjoyed the personal and historical stories. They kept us laughing all week. -Catherine and Joel from Ottawa

We had an absolutely amazing experience thanks to Werner! It couldn’t have been better and would highly recommend him planning a Yukon experience to everyone! So personalized and perfectly well executed. Thanks again! -Kathy from Whitehorse

From the moment we contacted [Werner], we knew we had stumbled across something special. Confused about what to do in this land neither of us had visited we’d ask Werner a dozen questions and he would answer each one in a detailed and timely manner - yet never in a way that pressured us to use his services. It was the trip of a lifetime and we are grateful for everything Werner did to make our time in one of Canada’s territories so very memorable. -Lara and Markus from Germany and Dubai

Werner had come prepared with snacks including locally made caribou sausage, delightful ginger cookies, a smores kit, and the most soul-enriching tea I've had the pleasure of drinking. I would not have felt more safe or comfortable sitting around a bonfire in the middle of Yukon in very chilly temperatures with anyone else. I encourage everyone to spend time with Werner on their next adventure to the Yukon. As promised on the website, I came as a stranger and left as a friend. -Morgan from Calgary
