Event Category:

Join Neil Zeller on an incredible 8-day photo adventure in The Yukon. From the moment you are picked up at the airport in Whitehorse, you will be immersed in the colours, culture, and scenery of this amazing Territory.

From the Carcross Desert to the Dempster Highway and every amazing sight along the way, this guided photographic experience will leave you in complete awe. The days are full of colour and touring while the nights are meant for looking up. September is a wonderful time to hunt for the Northern Lights in the Yukon!

On day one you will arrive at Whitehorse Airport and be transported out to Sundog Retreat to your modern, cozy, fully stocked cabin. Settle in for the night and point your cameras to the night sky! Neil will guide you on all the camera setting to make incredible night sky photos.

On day 2 after a restful sleep, wake up to a breakfast in your cabin and delicious pot of Yukon roasted coffee, before we gather together for a city tour and sightseeing in Whitehorse. After a late lunch, we can decide on more sightseeing before retiring to the cabins for a family-style supper and more night sky viewing.

Day 3 will be a choice between a full day trip to Carcross (where you will see a desert and a beach within 2 km of each other) or a day of sightseeing to Haines Junction and Kluane National Park. We will return to Whitehorse in time for supper and a soak at Takhini Hot Springs before we resume our capturing of the night skies.

Day 4, will be reserved for a private tour at the Yukon Wildlife preserve, along with other sightseeing and classroom opportunities. We will also be preparing to check out of Sundog Retreat for our journey to Dawson City the next day.

Day 5, we welcome the Klondike Experience as our guides for the remainder of our adventures. We will be picked up from Sundog Retreat and from there we will be treated to a custom tour up the Klondike Highway, for our own personal agenda capturing all the highlights of this amazing journey. We will arrive in Dawson City in time to get settled into our hotel rooms at the Aurora Inn before we have the rest of the evening to explore.

Day 6 and 7 we are touring the Dawson area, including a full day custom adventure up the Dempster Highway to Tombstone Territorial Park for hiking and other photographic adventures. Our second day in Dawson city will include touring local highlights, lookouts and museums. Each night we will be evaluating the night skies to see where and when will be best for photos!

Day 8 will include some relaxing time around Dawson City before our noon departure on Air North back to Whitehorse where the trip will conclude with enough photos and memories to last a lifetime.

This photo adventure is open to photographers of all abilities. When the trip is over you will be equipped with new photography knowledge and a mountain of amazing photos.
