Description

Roughly the same size as Spain with a population of 37,000 (23,000 of which reside in the capital city of Whitehorse), the Yukon is wild, remote and sparsely populated. This northern Canadian gem offers what we believe is some of the best aurora borealis viewing in the world. Marvel at the bright colors dancing across the night sky as you enjoy both guided and self-directed light viewing sessions. Experience authentic Canadian transportation as you command your own dogsled team from one wilderness lodge to the next, across frozen lakes and wide open tundra.

Trip to Canada

Our experience with Entree Canada was excellent. All of the drivers and cars were very good and the recommended guides were knowledgeable and helpful. They scheduled us on Via Rail Canada from Montreal to Quebec City and the attendants were extremely nice and helpful as were the lady porters. One of our traveling companions lost a hearing aid while on the train and didn't discover it until we reached the hotel, Auberge St. Antoine, who called immediately. The train had departed. Miraculously, the next day Via Rail brought the hearing aid to the hotel. That is really good service. Use Entree Canada if you travel to Canada.
