Northern Tails went out of their way ensuring our trip met every expectation. We booked the cozy cabin package and were blown away with everything we experienced. Our first nights stay was in Whitehorse and we were picked up in the evening for a night of Aurora viewing, unfortunately Mother Nature was not on our side so the lights were not to be seen. We did however have a great evening and met some wonderful folks.
If you don't have the appropriate clothing those rented by northern tails are wonderful and certainly keep the cold out. (Jackets, pants, boots, gloves mitts and a hat).
The cabin at Fox Bay on lake Laberge was amazing, if it's getting away your looking for this is the place for you.
We walked the trails, strolled on the lake and booked a day of dog sledding. Everything was stunning. While here we had a camp fire beside the lake each of the 2 evenings and were here. On these evening we were mesmerized by the display of the northern lights, not a cloud in the sky and the stars were nothing like I've ever seen before.
The cabin is well equipped, propane lights, fridge and stove. Plenty of dishes and pots and pans. Your guide will stop at the local grocery store so your meals are up to you. The cabin has a wood stove with lots of wood so the cabin is very comfortable even when it's -25 outside. There is no power other than the generator (we were the only ones here so we dictated the hours) for the heated shower house.
We booked a day of dog sledding while here and were blown away with our guides. Before we knew it we each had a sled and were mushing up the lake for an unforgettable day.
Our last day we again were back in Whitehorse and had another evening with our northern tails guides at their viewing area. This time luck was on our side the display was incredible, the lights danced across the evening sky in stunningly greens and red.
There is lots to do in Whitehorse with a variety of restaurants for everyone tastes.
If this is on someone bucket list, I'd certainly recommend it.
