We went on a 6 hour ride with lunch and then spent a night in one of their cabins that had the most amazing comfy mattress. We made cowboy coffee in our cabin and honestly from start to finish this hands down was one of the best highlights of our trip. The guides and the owners are fantastic. If you want a truly memorable time, this is your place! My husband was a complete rookie and afraid of horses, he rode Fancy and had the most wonderful experience. I rode Barney who was a fantastic horse. Thank you Mandy and Armin

We did the 3 day trip camping out for 2 nights. It was a great experience with really well schooled horses. Armin and Mandy were great and genuine outdoor people who had a really good attitude - safe but up for the adventure that a wilderness experience can bring. I'd absolutely recommend them provided you are comfortable with being very much out with nature.

My girlfriend and I went on a 2h trip. It was great, the place is really into the wild of Yucon, and riding in the snow is a unique experience. Armin and Mandy were very hospitable and we were very well received, I recommend!

Went for a ride for 2 hours mother and daughter who is 6- in the first hour one horse took off the other direction and the lady behind me jumped off - the guide was nice and traded horses- but then the next one took off into the bush - threw her off and she hit her head so hard she blacked out - so needless to say we all walked back - then the owners didn't even contact me after - I texted to ask for half my money back after the traumatizing experience and apparently they don't do refunds - yeah right - bad. Business and it was downright dangerous. Wear a helmet people

Response from YukonHorsepackingAdv, Manager at Yukon Horsepacking Adventures - Day Tours
Responded Aug. 3, 2017
We appreciate everyone's reviews on Trip Advisor. It was an unfortunate and unheard of experience for this incident to have happened with our horses. Our horses have had many unexpected encounters with wildlife and conditions in the wilderness over the years and have performed calmly and faithfully with guests on their backs. It is also unfortunate that the guest and daughter chose to walk home, as their horses had done nothing wrong. The affected person and horse in the incident were being attacked by wasps. Our guide who was on this ride confirmed that the horses were attacked by wasps from wasp nests which had developed in the ground on a couple places along one of the trails. Horses getting attacked by wasps may react to get away from the unexpected pain on their body. Our guides went out right after this incident and removed the nests and wasps from the trail. This year we have noticed an increase in nature of wasp nests and we have managed this by removing them immediately upon recognition. We do agree with this review that it is always a good idea to wear a helmet for safety reasons and encourage adult guests to do so.

I am a local resident in Whitehorse, Yukon and I loved my experience! My mother was visiting from New Brunswick, so I rented a cabin to stay in and we went on a Yukon Horseback Adventure. We enjoyed ourselves and the cabin experience completed our adventure with a warm fire and home cooked meal. I highly recommend visiting Yukon Horsepacking Adventures whether you are a local Yukoner or visiting this beautiful territory.
