Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
The ‘Wilderness City’ is home to black bears, moose, bald eagles and beavers, where sightings are common in the Yukon Valley both from the river and on hikes in the forested foothills. These animals are free to roam, and our local guide will remind clients to view these animals responsibly, for instance by keeping at a distance.

This is also a small sized group tour, meaning that we have little impact on the environments and communities we visit and are able to ensure that we do not disrupt or lead to the displacement of local people. This number also allows us to stay in unique accommodation that cannot benefit from coach tours and other mass tourism due to their limited sizes. For instance, during this trip we spend six nights camping along the banks of the Yukon River.
Few holidays have as little detrimental impact on the environment and local residents as a trip like this, we incorporate sustainable activities whilst we explore the Yukon Territory such as canoeing and hiking to mitigate damage.

As we are very conscious of our effects on the places we visit, we also operate a ‘leave no trace’ policy, whereby we ensure no rubbish including plastic has been left behind in the places we visit. Clients are also encouraged to pack their own reusable bottle which can be refilled throughout the trip to reduce our dependency on single-use plastics. All meals are included while camping and fresh, locally sourced ingredients will also be used where possible, to reduce food miles.

The Impacts of this Trip

During this trip clients will have the opportunity to learn about the history of the infamous Gold Rush between 1896-1899 from their local guide and explore Whitehorse, surrounded by pristine lakes, mountains and the Yukon river. The first evening is free to explore the city as clients wish. Although this trip is designed as a canoeing trip, there are still opportunities to witness some interesting historical sites, including the Old Trading Post of Hootalinqua, RNWMP outpost and Big Salmon Village.

We support local businesses through this trip by spending one night in a local, family-run hotel and when meals are not included, our guides can recommend smaller businesses and restaurants where guests can try out other local produce. When visiting the village of Carmacks, guests can also enjoy a lovingly prepared meal for the group.
