Into the wild

The Wilderness Lodges in the Yukon invite you to explore the final frontier.

Often referred to as Canada’s final frontier, the Yukon Territory north of British Columbia is a tantalising combination of untamed wilderness, pristine nature and vibrant townships.

In a place where moose far outnumber humans, you can truly leave civilisation behind, ignite your pioneering spirit and immerse yourself in the tranquillity of untouched forests, vast mountain ranges and sparkling lakes and rivers.

Discover the true definition of wilderness lodge in the Yukon, where the rustic comfort of luxurious log cabins and off-grid yurts blend into their natural surroundings.

Where honey-drunk grizzly and black bears, moose, wolves and all manner of wildlife can be witnessed roaming freely (from a safe distance), and where the daily grind of life melts away as you reconnect with your body, mind and spirit, here in Mother Nature’s playground.

Watch the sunrise over Tagish Lake from the balcony of your cabin at Southern Lakes Resort, situated within the traditional territory of the Carcross/Tagish First Nation.

Meander along the hiking trails in the boreal forest or take a guided tour up and above the tree line. Canoe the lake or throw in a line and catch your lunch!

The lake is abundant with lake trout, arctic grayling, lake whitefish and northern pike. Enjoy front-row seats to the mystical northern lights during winter and fill your days with snowshoeing and snowmobiling.

Stay in a glass-fronted chalet at the Northern Lights Resort & Spa, purpose- built for optimum aurora viewing, with large floor-to-ceiling glass offering a magical way to bring the enchanting outdoors inside.

Just 20 minutes from Whitehorse, this unique winter wonderland is framed by picturesque pine forests and snow-drenched mountains, with cabins created from Douglas fir trees and unobstructed views of the soaring aurora borealis.

During summer, soak up the ample sunshine with a long hike throughout 600 acres of stunning wilderness. Keep your eyes peeled for the 15 different northern species who call this paradise home, and listen out for the sounds of the wild and woolly.

As you inhale the pure mountain air, you’ll know your heart has answered the call of the wild.

At Mt Logan Ecolodge, feel a world away as you watch the sunset over the legendary mountain ranges, home to Mount Logan, Canada’s highest peak and the lodge’s namesake.

Revitalise the soul in the peaceful yoga and meditation room, indulge in a massage or relax in a hot tub after a lively day outdoor adventure – no matter what the season.

Choose from a range of guided tours, from electric fat biking and northern lights viewing to river rafting, glacier flightseeing and dog mushing.

Picturesque and intimate, the Inn on the Lake is the ultimate getaway for those seeking luxury and wilderness in equal measures. Play outdoors during summer when the days feel never-ending, relax on the expansive deck, hike to scenic summits or paddle Marsh Lake on canoe or kayak.

Renowned for its outstanding culinary offering, the resort chef infuses northern flavours, using locally produced ingredients to create sumptuous meals. From Boreal Berry Bounty to Noble Sockeye Salmon, you’ll savour the essence of the Yukon.
