Nature Tours of Yukon's Northern lights and winter tours

Experience the difference Nature Tours of Yukon makes.


Hi there! Nice to meet you.
Thanks for taking the time to get to know us better. We love to make new friends.

So what are we all about then?

Experience the difference Nature Tours of Yukon makes.

Nature adventures are only as good as your guide. Despite all the intricate planning that goes into creating a superlative nature adventure, we know a successful trip can only happen with an extraordinary guide at the helm. That’s why we're proud to have a collection of fine Yukon wilderness guides! Not many companies undertake in-depth guide training as we do.  Nature Tours of Yukon has the most experienced guides available in Yukon.

The smallest groups in the industry. Can you imagine trying to walk silently along a secluded trail, careful not to disturb wildlife, with 20 or 30 other travelers? Or watching the northern lights in pristine boreal wilderness with dozens of other tourists at your side? We know that meaningful nature encounters must take place in small groups. That's why our trips average just five to twelve guests, by far the smallest groups in the industry. This not only guarantees you much more personal close-up wildlife encounters, it also ensures a lower-impact presence on the planet's special places we all love.

The best vehicles. As a company that offers adventures all over Yukon, Alaska and Northwest Territories, we use many different types of vehicles, from 4x4 luxury cars for exploring the arctic and ice roads to vans and trailers to transport you and your equipment to river or trail. The one consistent element is that our vehicles are always the best available, providing the safest and most comfortable ride. Further, with our uncompromising small-group policy, we also limit the number of travelers in each vehicle to below capacity (and well below the number other companies place in them), ensuring a more comfortable and more personalized nature experience.

We won’t cancel! If you've ever experienced the disappointment of having your long-awaited adventure canceled at the last minute because the tour company didn’t sell enough spaces, you’ll appreciate our promise never to cancel a trip due to low enrollment. That’s right - If we confirmed a departure to you, we’re going!

We know our way around the North. We kicked the tires of planes, buses and cars, we have driven almost every mile of highway and know the back roads. We paddled the rivers, walked the trails, been licked by sled dogs, snowshoed the mountain trails, spent nights under the stars and watched the Aurora Borealis.

Nature Tours of Yukon is based in Whitehorse for 30 years. We are a member of Wilderness Tourism Association Yukon (WTAY), Tourism Industry Association Yukon (TIA Yukon), Klondike Visitors Association (KVA), and Canadian Inbound Tourism Association Asia Pacific (CITAP).

Our goal is to be your one-stop address for year-round wilderness adventures, travel and accommodation in Yukon and Alaska. Our team of skilled, professional, licensed guides and drivers will always go the extra mile to provide you, our guest, with a safe, enjoyable and unforgettable experience. We have many returning customers who came as guests and left as friends.
