Tips and information on indigenous tourism

Expand areaArrival

For example with Air Canada or Lufthansa to Vancouver.

Pacific Coastal Airlines also flies from there to Powell River, half an hour's drive from Lund, the departure point for boat trips to Desolation Sound.

In addition to Air Canada, Air North and, in summer, Condor also fly to Whitehorse in the Yukon directly from Frankfurt.

An off-road rental car or an RV is recommended for exploring the Yukon.

Expand sectionAccommodations

The Klahoose Wilderness Resort is located on Desolation Sound in British Columbia.

Experiencing the culture of the Klahoose First Nation is just as much part of the program for guests as encountering humpback whales and grizzlies in Toba Inlet.

The Allen family's log cabins at Shakat Tun Camp have a unique distant view of Kluane National Park.

In the Aurora Glass Chalets of the Northern Lights Resort run by a Swabian and his Chinese wife not far from Whitechurch, you can also experience the Yukon's Northern Lights from your own bed.

One of the few places to stay in the wild west of the Yukon are the cozy bungalows at Discovery Yukon Lodgings.
