Ice Fishing Experience

A passion of the Yukoners!
Discover a favorite activity of the Yukon – ice fishing!

Enjoy with us a winter day outside Whitehorse – on one of the beautiful backcountry lakes. Surrounded by the landscape of the Ibex or Grey Mountains, a wonderful panorama awaits you.

We pick you up at your accommodation in Whitehorse and drive to one of the surrounding lakes. We will choose a nice sunny spot on the lake and your guide will instruct you in ice fishing.

In order to be able to go ice fishing, we first have to shovel the snow aside and drill a hole through the thick ice.
Everyone gets their own special fishing rod and try their luck at ice fishing. You can of course, take the fish you catch with you!
