Ice Grizzlies of the Yukon Trip Notes
Getting ThereTravel arrangements between one’s point of origin and Whitehorse, Yukon (YXY) is the responsibility of the traveller.
WeatherAverage daily high temperatures are 5°C (41°F) with lows of -20°C (-4°F). As mornings and evenings can be very cool, we suggest dressing in layers with fleece undergarments. Fleece layers to a full jacket shell (we suggest waterproof) are also highly recommended. You may also wish to bring light gloves and light rain gear.
Daylight HoursYou can expect approximately 10 to 12 hours of full daylight at this time of year.
Gourmet MealsArctic Kingdom believes in providing only the best food possible during our expeditions. Expect expertly prepared meals with plenty of snacks and beverages, including freshly caught salmon. All meals are included while in Whitehorse and while at the Ice Grizzly Cabins. Beer and wine are also included with dinners while at the Ice Grizzly Camp.
PowerPower provided is 120VAC/60Hz using North American standard plug outlets. It is recommended that you bring your own plug adaptors to suit your electrical devices. If your electrical devices require 220volt power, most cameras, laptops already have a power inverter/AC Adaptor that converts the power to the necessary level for your equipment on your power cord and there will be no further inverters/adaptors needed. To check, look at the adaptor (usually the square/rectangular shaped box attached to your power cord) and examine the “input” information. It will usually have an annotation similar to “INPUT” 100 – 240V.
Is This Adventure For You?This adventure is perfect for anyone looking for an experiential adventure. In the safety of a professional wilderness guide, you'll have excellent opportunities to observe and photograph grizzly bears and other local wildlife while immersing yourself a stunning and vast pristine wilderness.
Spirit of Adventure RequiredArctic Kingdom expeditions are not intended to have as many check-marks or sights to be seen crossed off in a short period of time. We believe in taking things as they come, to relax and enjoy the moment, be it a sunny or rainy day, to appreciate where you are in the moment, and fall into the laidback lifestyle.
It is assumed that participants have the spirit within themselves to enjoy the unique solitude of their environment and the free time provided. If this outlook is not with you, it is suggested that participation would be a mistake and we can assist in finding an alternative adventure. Of course, good health is fundamental to travel into any remote region, yet despite this, all participants will be required to obtain emergency medical and evacuation travel insurance. With a flexible attitude as an equally important prerequisite, age should not be considered a deterrent.
