Overview

Nature Tours of Yukon specializes in bucket-list worthy experiences, from scheduled guided wilderness adventures to custom-designed self-drives, and everything in between.

Our Arctic Circle Tour is part of Destination Canada’s Signature Experiences Collection. A Canadian Signature Experience showcases the best Canada has to offer and what makes Canada unique.

This is what some of the guests had to say about their bucket-list experiences with Nature Tours of Yukon:

“I am back at work at the hospital and have more heart surgeries lined up than I can count. I look back on our recent experience and find solace. I am so appreciative of your work and service.” – Dr. Steve & Scotty, Vince and Logan, New York

"Hi team Nature Tours, after a travel of around 30 hours I got home still with a smile on my face – this Chilkoot excursion was one of the best things I did in my life! Thanks to all of you."   – Christian "the slowest hiker ever," Germany

"We want to thank you very much for the great tour we had up the Dempster last month. Nature Tours of Yukon rocks!! Every planning detail was covered, and our trip from start to finish was excellent and worry-free. As we have said, you think of everything – even the northern lights appearing on our last night in Inuvik! Thanks, Conny – we knew you'd be able to arrange it for us!!" – Val & Roger, Ontario

“As someone in a wheelchair it is not easy to travel to places such as the Yukon. I was able to experience magical moments under the northern lights, travel through wonderful national parks and meet great people. Thanks to the team of Nature Tours of Yukon for organizing a very special vacation."  – Markus, Switzerland

Testimonials

NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT

Sarah, Chris, Carole and Shaheen

We wanted to send a note regarding our guide Derek. He was such a joy! We actually all really missed him when we had to say goodbye to him, I think it was harder on us than it was on him, haha. He was very informative, very kind, sweet, laid back and just overall a great person. We joked about how we wish we could adopt him into our family. In terms of our tour, the views of the Dempster Highway to the Arctic Circle were my favourite. The mountains, the landscape was just unreal. I've never seen anything like it. Eagle Plains and Dawson City were so INTERESTING to me! Unfortunately we didn't get to see the northern lights as it was very cloudy but I guess we'll just have to come back sometime. Thank you again all for all your help! All the best.

SIX OUT OF A POSSIBLE FIVE STARS

Hilde and Klaus with Tina

The holiday is over. What remains are beautiful memories. Our Tina was there for the first time in the winter – she too was so facinated. I think we've really infected her with the Canada Winter virus. The only downer: unfortunately we could not experience the finish of Allen Moore – at the time we were already over the Coast Mountain of BC. But Robert drove us the day before departure to Carmacks so we could experience Allen Moore's arrival at the checkpoint. That was really great; I filmed him on his ride over the frozen Yukon River. That was much more interesting than the arrival at the checkpoint. We would like to thank you very much. Nature Tours of Yukon is really a lucky draw in an ever-widening pot of sellers. In a possible rating of five stars, we give you six. In a nutshell, we will definitely recommend you. Greetings. Until we meet again.

ANTICIPATING THE NEXT TRIP ALREADY

Dr. Steve (Scotty, Vince and Logan)

I am back at work at the hospital and have more heart surgeries lined up than I can count. I look back on our recent experience and find solace. I am so appreciative of your work and service. I can't say enough great things about Robert, our guide ... please say hello for me.  I am looking towards next summer. Do you have other backpack trips the Bailey Clan can tackle? We would want Robert and our only request would be smiles all around. Please talk to Joost and see what might work. Thank you again.
