Fishing

Fishing

Book a fishing charter with our knowledgeable guide and discover why Tagish Lake has been famous for its fishing grounds for many centuries. The nutrient rich cold water is extremely pure and an excellent habitat for Lake Trout, Arctic Grayling, Lake Whitefish and in some spots Northern Pike. Most fishing is done by trolling, and we practice "catch&release" during our fishing trips. Unless of course, you wish to grill your fish on the beach for lunch! Fishing licenses are sold at the Resort.
Snowshoeing

Snowshoeing

Follow the fresh tracks of a lynx through the boreal forest, hear the harsh snow crunch under your snowshoes and climb a hill to enjoy fantastic views over the vast frozen landscape! A slow and peaceful activity, snowshoeing brings you up close with life in the far north, walking through the bush as the pioneers did more than 100 years ago. Learn about plants and animals and how they survive the deep winter up here.
Snowmobiling

Snowmobiling

Fast paced and fun, snowmobiling is a great way to get around and to see more of the Yukon's winter scenery unfolding right at your doorstep. We provide half day and full day snowmobiling trips, where everyone drives their own machine. Full day tours include a trapper's lunch on a campfire or a luxury lunch at remote Tagish Wilderness Lodge. As with all our activities, no prior experience is needed in order to enjoy snowmobiling. Tours are adapted to our guests abilities and comfort.
