EXPERIENCES

Are you fascinated by its untouched nature? The countless mountains, the many crystal-clear lakes and rivers, the clean and fresh air, the vast forests, the variety of animals and plants?

Would you like to get to know Yukon’s North – where no road leads to? Where the First Nations still largely live off fishing and hunting?

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.

NORTH OF THE ARCTIC CIRCLE

Come with us to explore the picturesque landscape of the Arctic!

Experience the forever lasting Midnight Sun, no darkness, no feel for time. Or watch the stunningly beautiful Northern Lights, dancing for hours on the dark sky above the winter wonderland.

Meet the Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation in the remote northern village of Old Crow. Learn about their Heritage, their Culture and their beautiful homeland.

Have you walked in the cool waters of the Arctic Ocean, way up North? Tuktoyaktuk is an Iqaluit settlement at the shores of the Arctic Ocean. Try local traditional food like Muktuk, dried fish and traditional apqik jam.

Take many amazing photos – plus receive your personal "Arctic Ocean Certificate"!

This is a combined Fly and Drive tour. We fly over the endless Northern Wilderness and the vast Mackenzie River Delta – no roads, no buildings, just pure wilderness. We will drive the newly opened Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Hwy. This is the only highway to the Arctic Ocean in North America! A must-do experience with a good chance to see Northern wildlife.

Please contact us for more detailed information. We are happy to plan your individual Arctic tour!

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

Hello Werner: It was nice to meet you earlier this week. I just want to let you know how very much we enjoyed our snowshoeing adventure. Thank you for sharing the silence and the spectacular beauty of the Yukon with us. The trip was so well organized and your thoughtfulness to detail was much appreciated. Lunch was very generous and well beyond what we expected, complete with many treats including the elk and blueberry sausages warmed over a small bonfire on the ice. It was such a beautiful day - the experience was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to the north. Thanks also for sharing the photos with us! 
– With gratitude, Nancy (from British Columbia)
