Yukon Dog Mushers Heading Out Onto the Trail with their Huskies



How will it feel to head out onto the trail with your own team of huskies? You will feel a certain amount of exhilaration, a sense of boundless optimism at the prospect of leading a team of winter sport athletes on what is essentially a quintessential Canadian experience. Above all, you will be learning leadership skills in a little understood place, Yukon, a place where this living history tradition is very much part of the territorial culture, where mushers are valued knowledge-keepers and placemakers, going against the more superficial tourism currents. Authenticity of experience is at the core of mushing protocols and tourism rituals in Yukon and Alaska. Your participation in a trip like this is an investment jn responsible tourism practices that are beneficial to the community, the local economy and move us closer toward sounder environmental stewardship practices. Come make a difference with us!
