Itinerary

Day 1 Overlooking Whitehorse and beyond, our local Grey Mountain trail network is a mountain biking paradise. Spectacular views of the Whitehorse valley and the coastal mountains near Carcross accompany us throughout the ride. Yoga: A welcoming flow class with a chill pace designed to stretch out the travel tightness. An opening Reach so we can fully absorb the Ride!

Day 2 We will start in the alpine of Mount McIntyre, admiring the views of the Whitehorse valley and towards Fish Lake. We can even see all the way to Lake Laberge, the lake made famous in the Robert Service poem The Cremation of Sam McGee. As we start the descent back to Whitehorse, we will ride through many different ecosystems, starting in the alpine right down to the valley floor. Yoga: Full Flow class – 90 minutes of yoga magic that will leave the body buzzing with delight. Say aloha abs, hi hips, and shalom shoulders, and bless-you back!

Day 3 It's a day of exploring the Carcross trail called MacDonald Creek. Beautiful scenery and a good pedal will have our hearts pumping. Yoga class after smooths everything out!

Day 4

 Today’s ride takes in one of the Yukon’s ‘must-do’s’. The Yukon River is a highlight of any trip to Whitehorse. A deep bright green colour that seems almost unreal. On today’s ride we will maneuver our way through the trails to follow the Yukon River as it flows back to town. Yoga: Final Flow 60 minutes: Finishing with a fun, lively, and care free vinyasa flow, with an emphasis on gratitude.

Day 5 Our last day on the bike! Time to play on the lower trails on Montana Mountain. Fun and challenging, this network of trails was created by and maintained by the Carcross Tagish First Nation trail crew. Feel the flow!

Day 6


 After a continental breakfast and delicious Midnight Sun coffee to go, your guide will transport you back to the airport in time to catch your flight back to reality!
