We visited last year, but alas, no Northern Lights for us, so we came back this year, and saw them. Nothing had changed since last year, except that I had improved my French. Christiane was gracious enough to kindly correct my elementary French grammar. Christiane et Jean-Marc sont des hôtes charmants, et rein n'est de trop. We took advantage of... More

Dear Kathryn and Grahame, Thank you very much for reviewing Takhini River Lodge for the second time in such beautiful way. I am sure that next time you will come your French will be excellent. Dogsledding is an amazing adventure and can be very addictive. When I did my first trip seven years ago, I had no idea that shortly... More

Our main goal was to see the Northern Lights, which we saw every night of our stay. We found the place to be very quiet, comfortable and very relaxing. The owner's of the lodge did everything we asked and that made our stay very pleasant. We snowshoed, hiked and went on dog sled. If we ever went to Whitehorse area,... More

Our stay at Takhini River Lodge started by seeing the Northern Lights our first night, and from there progressed to a hike across the frozen Takhini River, to snowshoeing, to dog mushing (we love their dogs!), and finally the Yukon Wildlife Preserve - it was all fabulous! And that doesn't even begin to include Christiane and John-Marc's gracious hospitality and... More

We could not have chosen a better location. We really did see the Northern Lights! Which, by themselves were amazing. But, Christiane and Jeane-Marc, were such gracious hosts. They put in such long days and yet had the time and patience to help someone as awkward as me put on snow shoes. Christiane is a wonderful and imaginative cook. You... More

Dear Judy and Rick, When we moved from France seven years ago that was the first thing that puzzles us...so many stars in the sky! We never realized before how looking at the sky at night without light pollution could have been be so thrilling. Thank a lot for the wonderful review. Jean-Marc & Christiane More

We went up with a goal of seeing the Northern Lights, and would happily go back for all the other activities! We signed up for the five-day package. Our hosts Christiane and Jean-Marc attended to our every need, from setting up trips for snowmobiling, dog sledding and a nature preserve tour, to setting our camera up for the Lights. We... More

We came all the way from Australia to get a glimpse of the northern lights, but what we didn't expect was how lovely and kind Christiane and Jean-Marc were. Christiane was so helpful with organizing things for us to do during the day, and her cooking was amazing! It was like dining in a restaurant every night looking out the... More

Everything about our stay was pure magic. I took my 18 year old daughter for a mother/daughter global adventure and what an adventure we had! Minus 40 degrees, shimmering skies, and the most attentive and delightful hosts. Takhini River Lodge is paradise. From Christiane's mouth watering cooking to Jean-Marc's knowledge and hospitality and this couple's boundless thoughtfulness and energy. Our... More

Christiane and Jean Marc are excellent hosts at the beautiful Takhini Lodge. The accommodations are beautifully appointed and Christiane's food superb. However it is there personal graciousness that makes the stay so wonderfully memorable. They are kind and thoughtful of every need with unerring taste and discernment.
