Yukon Colours Photo Tour Sept 6-13, 2017
This is a Whitehorse and Dawson City photographic adventure with included flights from Calgary and Edmonton.
Neil is excited to offer his 2017 signature tour to photograph the best of the Yukon during peak fall colours. Neil will welcome five guests on this tour. He will help you make your best photos in every photo situation. Whether we are photographing the amazing Northern Lights or The Yukon’s incredible wildlife, you will be in good hands.
Sept 6 - Night flight from Calgary or Edmonton, with seats all on the north side of the plane to give us the best chance at seeing the Northern Lights as we fly to The Yukon. We will be greeted at the airport by our hosts from Sundog Retreat where we will head as soon as we gather our luggage. We will take note of the night skies and likely plan some time around the firepit at the Aurora viewing cabins to ease our way into the weeks’ adventures.
On day 2 after a restful sleep, wake up to a breakfast in your cabin and delicious pot of Yukon roasted coffee, before we gather together for a city tour and sightseeing in Whitehorse. After a late lunch we can decide on more sightseeing before retiring to the cabins for a family style supper and more night sky viewing.
Day 3, Friday will be a choice between a full day trip to Skagway, AK via the White Pass Railway (Admission fees apply) or a day of sightseeing to Haines Junction and Kluane National Park. We will return to Whitehorse in time for supper and a soak at Takhini Hot Springs before we resume our capturing of the night skies.
Day 4, Sept 9th, will be reserved for a private tour at the Yukon Wildlife preserve, other sightseeing and learning as we seem fit. We will also be preparing to check out of Sundog Retreat for our journey to Dawson City the next day.
Day 5, Sept 10th, we welcome Klondike Experience as our guides for the remainder of our adventures. We will be picked up from Sundog Retreat and from there we will be treated to a custom tour up the Klondike Highway, or our own personal agenda capturing all the highlights of this amazing journey. We will arrive in Dawson City in time to get settled into our hotel rooms at the Aurora Inn before we have the rest of the evening to explore.
Day 6 and 7 we are touring the Dawson area, including a full day custom adventure up the Dempster Highway to Tombstone Territorial Park for hiking and other photographic adventures. Our second day in Dawson city will include touring local highlights, lookouts and museums. Each night we will be evaluating the night skies to see where and when we will be best for photos!
Day 8 will include some relaxing time around Dawson City before our afternoon departure on Air North connecting in Whitehorse for our relaxing evening flight home to Calgary or Edmonton.
