Carcross Excursion – Half-day Trip

Let us show you the hidden gems of the Yukon, while driving south towards Carcross.

Off the Alaska Highway and onto the Klondike Highway, we follow the winding road towards beautiful mountain ranges. There are great chances to spot wildlife here! About halfway to Carcross, we turn onto a gravel road. Maybe we can spot some bears while enjoying some more amazing mountain views?

After that, we'll continue our way to Carcross and go on a walking tour through this small First Nation community. There are lots of small stores and coffee shops to explore. In the afternoon we return to Whitehorse.

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.


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.

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.
