About
We are a rustic wilderness lodge located along the Takhini River in the Ibex Valley. Home to over 100 friendly Alaskan Huskies, we are a paradise for dog lovers. You will be immersed in our true Yukon lifestyle and Muktuk Adventures will become your home away from home while staying at our unique Wilderness Lodge or one of our authentic Yukon Cabins. We offer canoeing and hiking adventures throughout the summer and Fall. Discover the true beauty of the Yukon while our experienced guides lead the way. Throughout the winter we’ll take you on a once-in-a-lifetime dog sledding adventure. You will learn what it takes to be a musher while exploring the Yukon back country with your own team of up to six huskies. If you don’t have enough time to enjoy a multi-day excursion, we also offer day trips. In addition to that, you’re welcome to visit us anytime and enjoy free dog kisses!

My wife and I canoed the Yukon River with MukTuk Adventures back in late August- early September. This time, I returned with a long-time friend for dogsledding. We did the week-long lodge-based dog musher rookie camp. I can honestly say it was another great wilderness experience. We learned how to: put booties on the dogs, harness the dogs and attach them to the G-line. We took our teams out on four days and sledded along the Yukon River and up to Kokanee Lake. In my view, running sled dogs is a transcendent experience. I'm so very glad I had MukTuk provided me that opportunity. Our last day of camp was a non-sledding day. We went to the Yukon Wildlife Preserve where Manuela took us on a tour of the facility. She then handed us off to Geoff, who took us to the local hot springs where we soaked some tired and sore muscles. Geoff and Manuela were once again wonderful hosts and a delight to be around. The food was great as always. I know of no cheesecake equal to Manuela's. I plan to return and canoe the remaining portion of the Yukon River. Geof and Manuela, again, you two could not have done better! Brian

The 4-day northern lights package at Muktuk was a dream come true for two dog lovers on a bucket list trip to see the northern lights. We had a blast meeting all the dogs, shooting through the snowy trail on dog sleds, visiting the wildlife preserve, fishing on the frozen lake, riding a snowmobile, and waiting for the northern lights every night. Thank you Manuela and Jeff for the fantastic experience, exceptional food, and lovely accommodations with a view of the northern lights. Another huge thanks to Manuela for guiding us on our dog sled trip and wildlife preserve visit, plus the awesome food we couldn't get enough of! Other tourists we met on our flight back told us they saw almost no animals at the wildlife preserve and we would have also missed most of them if it weren't for our expert guide with immense knowledge of local wildlife. We were so happy we got the chance to meet everyone and the dogs at Muktuk, and hope to be able to return some day.

Nothing could have prepared me for the beauty of this trip. We booked the whole day trip for dogsledding. From beginning to end it was just amazing. Our main guides Tyler and Colton were full on professionals, they treated the dogs with utmost respect, stopping for rest stops for them etc. I was very worried, being an animal lover, that they may be overworked. Both guides were so personable and were very conscious of the dogs needs which I loved. Not to mention the wonderful, loving, friendly dogs. We fell in love with each and every one of them. We were blessed with a cloudless, bright blue sky, no wind and off we went. About 40k in total there and back. Absolutely stunning scenery all the way there and back. Wonderful BBQ for lunch with excellent hot dogs and hamburgers. Thank you Tyler !! All in all FANTASTIC trip. Would definitely recommend this trip. Loved it all the way. Want to go back again for sure. June and Nelson

Jeff and Little One (not a husky) picked our family up from the Whitehorse airport and we were immediately made to feel at home by Jeff and Manuela.

It was a delight to meet all of the dogs, who were very well cared for and excited to take us dog sledding. All of our adventures (dog sledding, yukon wildlife preserve, ice fishing and snowmobiling) were unforgettable experiences, and we were fortunate to catch a glimpse of the aurora.

We thoroughly enjoyed the home cooked meals, our accommodation in the lodge, and the company of the owners and fellow travellers. Our daughter reluctantly went to say goodbye to every single husky she could find before we were taken back to the airport.

We can’t thank Jeff and Manuela enough for their hospitality and would love to return one day.

We did the dogsled adventure. My wife and I did a half day of dog sledding on the river. Tyler was our guide and he was excellent. He stopped several times to make sure we were not having any problems. The really kool thing was the fact that we drove our own teams of four dogs. It was an incredible experience that we will never forget
After we got back to the dogyard, we were invited into the lodge for some very tasty homemade soup and rolls. We are already making plans to return next winter for a trip through the forest.
Manuela, the owner, was an excellent host.

Our week at Muktuk was fantastic! I can’t say enough about the hospitality of Jeff & Manuela, and of course all the dogs! They were so welcoming and the food is TOP NOTCH! If you think a Yukon adventure is something you’re interested in I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it!

Muktuk is a team who make your dreams come true!

So good planned tours which include everything that it is possible to do in that area:

- Dogs sliding in the winter snowy forest - we saw the dog's behavior and specific of each role of each dog n this process :)
- Dogs feeding and petting them :) in the free time - each dog is a real person with own character and mood, but all are so kind and cute :)
- Natural reserve with many unusual animals. We saw a lot!!! just for 1 day: goats, moose, elks, caribous, foxes, ground squirrels, lynxes, muskoxen :)
- Cozy night fire on the river shore in the night,
- Stanning views from river shore hills in the day time,
- North Lightening - it is amazing experience! We are waiting for it and it appeared in the early morning :) Manuela did pictures of us with the Lightening on her professional camera :) Spent with us few hours on the cold to do the best pictures with different views to provide us with the best memories :)
- We also saw how low is the sun in the winter time even in the midday time - so interesting experience :) have never seen it before :)

Manuela and her husband are very hospitable, met their quests in airport. Manuela cooks so great food - much tasty that in any restaurant I have ever tried!
So warm and cozy evenings with fireplace in amazing comfortable wood house with cup of tea and sharing interesting stories about the dogs and life in North area :)
And of course - some cute and gentle dogs are the part of these evenings :)
Very warm and comfortable in the house, hot water in the shower, so clean and made with love to the quests :)

Thank you so much! Really recommend Muktuk! Ad definitely - plan to come back there again!

From the minute we landed and met Manuela at the airport, we felt welcome.
The lodge felt like a home away from home.
Great conversation with other guests and lots of cuddles and kisses from the dogs around the house.
The dog sledding was an experience we will never forget. Sledding through the Yukon forest with your own team is something everyone must do once in your life.
The wildlife preserve gave us a chance to see many of the Yukons wildlife up close.
The hot springs was a welcome treat after a long day of excitement.
Ice fishing saw us bag a nice Lake trout and Manuela was kind enough to cook up our catch for an entree before dinner.

A word of warning, do not visit if you are on a diet! The food is exceptional and it is impossible to resist.

Thank you Manuela and Jeff!
We both had such an amazing experience at Muktuk and can’t wait to visit again.

We had an extra special Yukon wedding thanks to Muktuk Adventures. It was the perfect location for us, and the memories will be with us forever. Our guests loved the food and the accommodations. Thanks to Jeff, Manuela, and the dogs for kick starting our grand adventure in life together! I cannot imagine walking down the aisle now that I’ve been there by dog team!
