Roam through the Yukon’s expansive and trail-less wilderness of forest and mountains. This is the perfect training ground for mastering camping and traveling skills as well as for developing leadership skills and teamwork.
You’ll explore and learn in the Yukon’s wild and remote mountain ranges, where you’ll climb far above tree line for awe-inspiring views. You’ll enjoy untapped fly-fishing and spin fishing in wild rivers and clear alpine lakes.
Hiking here can be hard work, but the rewards of endless ridges and open tundra are well worth the effort. After just 30 days, you’ll come home with the skills and know-how to lead your own backpacking trips, although you’ll always long for the freedom of the Yukon.
"Although I have lived in the
Yukon all my life, it still is an adventure to go
exploring and hiking in new places... All in all,
this was a wonderful trip. It was a rich and valuable
experience and I will use everything I learned in
future trips and in everyday life."
