We stayed at Sundog for 5 nights in the Wolf Den cabin. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We pre-ordered the meals from the retreat and they were delicious, home cooked meals that went down after big days adventuring in -30C. The owners were sensational! They were extremely accommodating, helpful with organising... More

We took four children between the ages of 1 and 11 up for three nights and two days of Yukon exploration. As it was the end of a three week trip, we chilled in the fireweed cabin for most of the time, which was lovely, as the kids piled on winter gear and built a Tlingit (local version of an... More

Hi Dee – thanks for taking time to share your experience here. It was great to spend time with your whole family and I’m glad your kids enjoyed building the quinzhee. I know you appreciated the local Tlingit culture too! Just wanted to clarify that the amount you mentioned included charges for feeding your family of six and also for... More

First trip in Winter to the Yukon, with goals of seeing the Northern Lights, wildlife and breathing in the (cold) fresh air. Airport pickup was seamless. They took us to pick up groceries on the way to the property since we pre-ordered only about half our meals. Made a pit stop to local Yukon Brewing store to pick up vital... More

We stayed at Sundog for 4 nights between the wolf den and fireweed cabins and both were very clean and well equipped. I think the cranberry has the best location for aurora watching, the rest you likely need to step outside to check on the aurora. There are nice extras around the resort like a fire pit with marshmallows and... More

Being that it was our first time in Whitehorse, getting to Sundog Retreat and driving at night took some doing, but after the first trip, it was all easy than. Heather and Andrew are the owners and upon our arrival, the cabin was all ready for us with lights and heater on for us from the night cold. The cabin... More

We stayed at the Fuzzy Crocus for 3-nights Yukon aurora package. Andrew and Heather are exceptional hosts and made us felt welcomed. Moreover, their son came over to show us aurora camera setting tips. We enjoyed cooking meals and viewing the aurora from our private cottage. On the last night, we experienced the indoor sauna at Raven's Nest and even... More

We booked the Raven's Nest for 4 nights and got upgraded to the Fireweed. Spacious cottage for the 2 of us as it can accommodate 6. Self-catering, full equipped kitchen, everything's clean and tidy. No luck seeing the northern lights even though the aurora forecast looked promising. Weather did not cooperate. :( Nonetheless, it would be an ideal location for... More

I stayed at the Sundog Retreat with a small group of people on one of Neil Zeller's aurora photography tours. Four of us women shared a cabin - Cranberry - and found it comfortable and homey. Andrew, our host, couldn't do enough to ensure our comfort. He picked us all up at the airport, helped us settle in, and drove... More

A friend and I stayed in the Cranberry Aurora cabin during the first week of November. The cabin was clean, the beds were very comfortable and I loved the gas fireplace. Even though there are multiple cabins on the property, they are placed so that everyone has privacy. It was peaceful, quiet and the surroundings are gorgeous! The snow reveals... More
