Activity adventure | Northern Lights | Winter
Experience the best of the Yukon in winter as you enjoy a thrilling adventure at Boréale Ranch. It all begins in Vancouver, British Columbia, whose pretty setting between mountains and sea offers an early and tantalizing glimpse of Canada’s pristine natural world; it’s a setting perfectly complemented, and contrasted, by the luxuries of your boutique hotel. Then, swap city slicking for the wintry wilds of the Yukon as you fly north to Whitehorse for a two night stay before a transfer will bring you Boréale Ranch for a three-night, full-board stay. Here, you’ll have the chance to relax and explore as you wish, with complimentary use of snowshoes and fat bikes as well as the outdoor spa tub included in the price. Then, after days spent taking in the wilderness with a full range of optional adventures, you’ll settle in to long evenings by the fire and the chance to spot the aurora from the ranch’s specially built viewing platform.
Day by day itinerary
Fly to Vancouver
Start your holiday in style with included airport lounge access before your flight to Vancouver on Canada’s Pacific coast. On arrival, you’ll make your way to your city-centre hotel, the delightful Loden, whose designer interiors, spa, sauna and rooftop bar ensure an indulgent stay. You’ll have two nights here, affording plenty of time to explore a city whose highlights range from sprawling parklands to neighbourhoods bustling with boutiques and bistros. Perhaps take a cruise out from the harbour to search for whales and dolphins, explore the city’s galleries and museums or indulge in a food scene that’s constantly rated as one of the world’s best.
Stay: The Loden (Superior)
Fly north to Whitehorse the capital and only city of Yukon, spend two nights in the historic and colourful city. Named after the rapids on the Yukon River, the city was built by prospectors who flooded in the region at the height of the Klondike gold rush. Today it is an easier place to reach and explore, during your time in the city we recommend a visit to the MacBride Museum, and after a long day settle down and try out something from the Yukon Brewing Company.
Stay: BW Gold Rush Inn, Whitehorse (Standard)
Today you leave Whitehorse behind and transfer to Boréale Ranch, around 30 minutes outside the city. Despite its reassuring proximity to civilisation, it still feels a world away from the comparative bustle of the Yukon’s provincial capital, surrounded as it is by the granite jags of a snow-dusted mountain range and the seemingly endless boreal forest that stretches out across the valley as far as the eye can see. It’s a truly spectacular setting for three days of adventure and relaxation, as you take the chance to explore on fat bikes and snowshoes , included in the price, before returning to delicious dining, inspired by the region, bonfire beers and the chance to take in the Northern Lights from your balcony and the ranch’s specially built viewing platform. For further adventure, speak to our specialists about adding on the likes of husk safaris and cross-country skiing trips in the company of expert guides.
Stay: Boréale Ranch, Whitehorse (Superior)
