I can't really attest to how good their tours are but I did reach out to Boreale on Fat biking suggestions and rather than just encouraging us to buy into their tours, Marsha suggested (as first time fat bikers) a DIY rent a bike and hit up some local trails that she mentioned, which I thought was pretty honest from her. So thumbs up.

Just came back from a four day riding trip with Boreale so this review could be considered for both the ranch and their guiding services, which were both fantastic. You could probably attempt it on your own and save some money, but the package and services we received from Boreale was worth every penny and we'd happily go back and ride with them again. The ranch was perfect, the food was insanely good, and all the staff clearly take pride in their work. I thoroughly enjoyed that the only thinking I had to do was matching my socks to my jersey. The ranch is a hub of activity - when the staff isn't working directly with guests, they're working on other projects on site - but everyone was super welcoming and were always available to help us out if we needed something. Our bike guide David was awesome and excellently managed our riding days, balancing riding abilities and expectations for the group, which likely isn't always easy when you're guiding a group compromised of two couples that have never met before (neither of us booked a private guide). We can't stop raving about how great it was and how/when we'll get back again.

First off...if you book directly through Boreal Explorer instead of H&I you save 50% of the cost. Too bad I only knew about this from fellow travelers who were on the exact same trip as me after I booked. I agree with the other review indicating that the owner, Marsha, and one of the leaders, Dave, did not seem to care about their customers. Even when items were requested such as a clean towel or hair dryer there was no sense of urgency and both took a few asks to yield a response. Moreoever, Dave, made several uncomfortable comments to myself and other clients making us feel unwelcomed. Rather suprisingly. The accommodations were nice, however, there are dogs around that are fine if you are comfortable with them living in your space. The guides (Irik & Fynn) were excellent as were the cooks (Egla & Ziggy) and drivers. .

Hi there, Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for having taken so long before responding. We wanted to consult with our industry partner H&I and see if they had any negative feedback from that trip. We are all perplexed about this review as all of the feedback we have jointly received so far from that trip back in August have been very positive. But if we unintentionally did something that offended you, we would love to personally speak to you about it, as that is out of character behavior for both of the staff members you identified in your review. We are confused about the hair dryer and towel comment as each of our lodge rooms have a hair dryer and towels in the washroom. Each room that week were cleaned mid-week and given fresh towels. There is also a rack of fresh towels in the entrance for guests to help themselves to at all times. In regards to pricing, the H&I trip is a unique, intermediate level, lodge room-based package and it is priced accordingly. It is not a fair price comparison with the beginner trip that was staying in a yurt at the same time. It was a very different trip experience. If you wish to discuss about it further, we would be happy to do so. Please feel free to contact us directly at the lodge. Thank you - Sylvain

I was on Boreale's "Summer Solstice" tour, which included a four night stay in their "Yurtville", a collection of fine yurts and prospector tents just outside Whitehorse in a quiet, out of the way setting. It was an amazing experience. The owners/operators, Sylvain and Marsha, treat you like family and I was immediately made to feel welcome. The tour consisted of several different activities over the four days, but they were very open to changes in itinerary as the guests saw fit. Just a great experience all around. Their hired guides were also top notch. Would I go there again? I'm already dreaming about my next trip there!

Yukon is a great location for mountain biking. And there is not better way to ride it than with Boreal biking. They knowledge of the region, the quality of the bikes they offer make their tours a once in a life experience. Sylvain and Marsha put lots of love to what they do and they really make you feel welcome and at home. There is no better option to ride in the Yukon than Boreale Biking
