Jesse took our group out to Talus Lake and we had a great time. The location was fabulous, but he was the star of the show. His hospitality was amazing! He took care of our group better than I ever could have expected.

We were greeted at the airport by Noby, who would also be our guide for night viewing and a day tour of Dredge 4. He was very kind, knowledgeable and a great host! Sadly, we didn’t see any northern lights, but it’s not like he had a switch to flip! He prepared a fire for our comfort, poured hot chocolate to warm our bellies and provided sleeping bags to keep us extra warm in the Midnight Dome, all while watching the sky for the Aurora with hope. The Milky Way was spectacular and Mars was as bright as can be. Jesse, the proprietor, took us for our day trip to Tombstone and across the continental divide, where water flows to the arctic. The Dempster Highway is certainly a marvel of human ability, with a lot of interesting history, second to the natural marvel of landscape it cuts through. I took a spill on the ice right before our hike, but managed to tough it out. Later, when we returned to the hotel and I was feeling less tough, Jesse was prepared to take me to the doctor but I refused. He only left us after making sure I had some Advil and an ace bandage. The next day, Noby’s first question was about my health and well being. We also had a 1 hour Canada Parks tour, with Sarah, through Dawson City that took my imagination back in time. The tales of the struggles and perseverance through the gold rush made me feel less cold from then on. I would highly recommend this outfit!

We've just returned from an incredible winter tour with Klondike Experience - Jesse was our guide and managed our team of 18 (students & teachers) with incredible consideration and thoughtful planning. From Whitehorse to Dawson City, we felt like every need was cared for - from food, to accommodation, comfortable transportation, safety and thoughtfully planned activities (we did everything!). Jesse's knowledge of the area is unrivalled and we learned so much about the great Canadian north. Our students are still talking about this trip and we look forward to continuing the adventure next year.

We did 2 tours with Klondike and were lucky to have Valerie both times. She is so enthusiastic and a wealth of information. We went to the Dredge and the Goldfields and a city tour including across on the ferry to the road that takes you to the Top Of The World. We also chose to do the Dempster Highway and Tombstone Park. Definitely let them do the driving otherwise you will be replacing your tires and windshield. This is a part of Canada which you have to see for yourself and you see the affects of Climate Change. They also offer an Aurora night as well at a beautiful setting across the river.

If you want a wonderful experience in the Dawson City area, look no further than The Klondike Experience. My husband and I had such a great adventure! We spent three nights in Tombstone Territorial Park and then spent two more full days with our guide, Mathias, who was the best guide ever. Our trip started with one night at the Tombstone campground. Mathias took us on a fun hike and then made our delicious dinner after setting up our tent. The next day a helicopter picked us up and flew us to Talus Lake where we spent two nights. There are no words to describe the beauty of this place. Mathias took care of all of our needs including setting up our tent, preparing our meals, and taking us on hikes. After a fabulous helicopter flight back to Dawson, we went to the hotel that had been arranged by Jesse, owner of the Klondike experience. The next two days were spent with Mathias who drove us on the Top of the World Highway where my husband photographed the gorgeous fall color to his heart's content. This trip was no doubt one of the best of our lives. I hope you get the chance to have this experience!
