“A taste of Kluane - can't wait to return”

Terre Boreale - Day Tours
More attraction details
Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Based out of Whitehorse and run by two french people whom graduated with a conservation biology degree, Terre Boreale offers canoe trips, hiking trips and discovery tours in Yukon and Alaska in both French and English. Besides discovering the breath taking landscapes and colours of the North, our background allows us to provide an experience as close to the wilderness as possible through its observation, understanding and preservation. Because we want all our customers to have a unique experience we limit our group size to 6 customers per trip. This group size also allows us to travel the wilderness with high chances of viewing wildlife without disturbing it. Every one has different travel expectations, therefore Terre Boreale offers customized trips in Yukon and Alaska in all seasons.

We visited Whitehorse mainly for work, but decided that once our work was done it would be a great opportunity to visit Kluane. We booked a dayhike with Max and enjoyed it thoroughly. Max was very knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating of our level of preparedness. We did the Thunderegg Creek hike as the fall colours were starting to turn - it was just spectacular once the morning clouds lifted. Max spotted some sheep up on a mountainside and set up the scope for us to have a great view of them in their natural element, and also helped identify several bird and plant species. At our destination we enjoyed a delicious homemade lunch and snacks comprised of good quality ingredients overlooking a spectacular valley. On our return we stopped at the Interpretive Centre at Haines Junction, which is chock-full of interesting information and displays about the history of Kluane and area - highly worth it! I am already thinking and dreaming about a return to the Yukon next year to do a longer hiking trip with Terre Boréale - they have a great ethos about how to enjoy the outdoors.

I travelled to Yukon in May 2014 and booked 2 trips with Terre Boréale. It was more than what I was expecting! We did a hiking experience in the Tombstone territorial park, the landscape was still partialy covered with snow, just beautiful! We managed to spot mooses, some caribous, plenty of birds, and even a bear!! Milena and Max were always looking around so that we didn't miss out on anything!
The second trip was a canoe trip, to relax after the hiking trip, just as good as the hiking one.
Thank you guys ! A special thank you for the food :) Very nice food that we were not expecting while hiking and canoeing :)
