This trip has been an experience of a lifetime! I cannot but award excellent for everything, beginning with the general organization (fitting of lifejackets - required by law- and paddles, the 5 hour trip in the van from Whitehorse to Rose River Number One), the intensive and very patient teachings of our German guide Wolfgang on the innumerable tracks of wolf, bear, moose, beaver... and on how to fish (I caught my first pike!), to the amazing cooking abilities of our German Yukonite guide Robert, who surprised us with three delicious meals a day, fresh fruit and vegetables included! And who never lost patience in answering our many questions. And ending with the perfect weather (only half a day of light rains)! An altogether amazing and awesome experience, the vastness and silence of Yukon nature and rivers are still with me weeks later... A highly recommendable tour (just make sure to bring a winter sleeping bag, even summer nights in the Yukon can be quite cold!)

This was an absolutly exciting experience. We were three people (our guide François, my wife and myself). This was a small group, but for us it was an advantage. Nature Tours prepared the trip in a very professional way. We got good material and enough food. We didn't miss anything. One of the highlights was the flight with a waterplane to the Cariboo Lakes. Especially for us Europeans an amazing experience. We started canoeing on small Cariboo creek and ended close to Watson Lake, where the Liard river is as broad as the river Rhine. The landscapes were very different aswell. At the beginning, you are in a mountain area (Pelly range). Later the river winded through rather flat areas with impressive land cuts. There is a lot of variety! You can get on this trip a rough idea of the vast wilderness of Northern Canada. During the whole trip on the river (about 350km) we never met other people. So if you would like to see and feel "real Canada" you should do this trip. On a journey like this you can leave daily life behind you and you learn again what the essential things are in life. Isn't it exactly this what we are looking for in vacation? The days passed very quickly. It is very important that you have a good guide. As Nature Tours is a rather small company, they have very experienced staff. And François is the best guide! With him we could improve our paddling skills. We learned many things about "how to behave in the wilderness". His cooking skills were absolutely great! We were surprised about his various Mediterranean cuisine. And finally in the evening at the campfire we had interesting conversations. I can warmly recommend to do the Liard river trip. With Nature Tours you have the right company to enyoy it.

Where to start! My Dad and I will be reflecting on this trip for the rest of our lives. From the start their website and admin was thorough and well organized. Their pack list and other tips lead us to be fully prepared and ready. We felt that no detail was too small or overlooked. Our guide, Francois, was phenomenal. He gave a great briefing the day prior to the hike and we were always at ease with him as our guide throughout the trip. Food was amazing, wilderness safety was always a priority, and it was consistently a positive atmosphere despite the challenges of the trail. I did the Dempster Highway trip with Joost and NatureTours 8 years ago, and have counted down the days to this trip. I hope to book a canoe trip with them in the near future. I will continue to recommend this company and their adventures to my friends and family.

We did the 7-day (i.e. 5-day) trek along the historic Chilkoot Trail with our guide, Robert, and his super Alaskan Husky, Opie. We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the whole experience! The scenery was absolutely INCREDIBLE!! Robert was very knowledgeable, organized, patient and thoughtful. His genuine passion for guiding and the great outdoors was inspiring and it was a pleasure to trek with him. Josi ensured that our many questions leading up to the trip were carefully answered and she was an absolute joy to work with. We couldn't have asked for a better experience with Nature Tours of Yukon from the planning to the conclusion of our journey. We only wish we could've stayed longer! If you're considering booking with this company, don't hesitate—you'll be glad you chose them!

We visited the Yukon, Canada in February 2019. We went on the Arctic Discovery Tour which was organised by Nature Tours of Yukon. What a fabulous trip - Nature Tours organised everything beautifully which would not be an easy task given the vast, isolated and snowy land we travelled across and also the very cold climate. Our guide Robert was fantastic and we very much appreciated his careful and safe driving. Robert was very knowledgeable answering all our questions and offering so much more information. Our accommodation was great and our queries via email were always answered promptly by Josie. Everything went without a hitch and we also got to see some awesome northern light displays as well. We were always made welcome wherever we went and we met some wonderful people along the way. Even got to drink the famous Sour Toe Cocktail in Dawson City !!! So if you are thinking of checking out the Yukon in winter go with Nature Tours of Yukon - they will look after you and send you home a happy traveller.
