Day 0 (July 20th): We greet you upon arrival at the Whitehorse International airport and drive you to your accommodation for the night.*
Night in a hotel in Whitehorse.
Day 1: This morning we drive to the airport and fly out, with a helicopter, into the wilderness.
The flight lasts approximately 20 minutes and offers spectacular views over Whitehorse area and the mountains to the south-west of the city you will not soon forget.
Once the helicopter has left and silence is back, we set up our first camp and enjoy our first hike together in the Coast Mountains.

Day 2 to 5: On day 2 we go on a day hike around our camp. We walk in the beautiful alpine where we try to spot local wildlife such as grizzly bears, moose, Dall sheep, caribou, etc.
On day 3, we pack all our gear and leave nothing behind as we hike over to another camp. It is a rather short hike over the alpine and down to a lake where we set our second camp.
From there we explore the mountains for the next 2 days, on day hikes.
Nights in a tent. B - L - D
Day 6: For our last day in the mountain wilderness, we hike, fully loaded, down to Primrose Lake where a float plane is waiting for us. Most of the day is downhill, and the views on the lake and the mountains around it are gorgeous.
Once again we fly for 20 to 30 minutes over the mountains and land near Whitehorse, on Schwatka Lake. We drop you off at your hotel for a well-deserved shower !
