Winter Getaway to Whitehorse

While it might seem like most Canadians want to take a trip somewhere warm in the winter, I think one of the best trips you can take is to our Great North. There are few things as beautiful as the white snow against a sunny blue sky. Whitehorse offers the perfect balance of adventure, and relaxation, all with the dining variety and amenities you (me!) could ask for.

Getting there:

Air North always has a great package on sale from many destinations across Canada including Vancouver, Edmonton, Kelowna, Victoria, Calgary and Ottawa to name a few! They usually include a hotel for a great price- ours was the SKKY

While you’re there, try:

The Yukon Wildlife Preserve

Go to the Takhini Hot Springs (and stay for dinner at Cafe Balzam it was incredible!)

Taste local brews at the Yukon Brewing Company

Take a walk along the boardwalk to the SS Klondike

Drive to Skagway, Alaska

Take in the Northern Lights

Snowmobiling with Up North Adventures

 

While you’re there, eat:

Coffee and breakfast at Baked Cafe

Breakfast, lunch or dinner at Burnt Toast

Dinner and drinks at Miners Daughter

Dinner and Drinks at Cafe Balzam before a night in the hotsprings
