This was such a great experience I will never forget it! I highly recommend it. The dogs are well cared for and the staff do a great job in making sure you and the dogs stay safe while sledding. Breathtaking views while out sledding!

As adrenaline junkies we love a good tour and Sky High delivered 2! We did Dog sledding on the Saturday with Mik and snow mobiling with Yort on the Saturday. Sky high provides warm winter clothes so you don't have to drag yours across the world with you. I was very impressed with the genuine love and care the sled...

Sky High is an absolute slice of paradise. For those worried about the somewhat rusticated amenities, rest assured that the outhouses, lack of electricity, no internet, gravity shower, etc. are actually amazing features to be embraced, rather than inconveniences to be endured - once you have made peace with the fact that you can't check email or reddit or Facebook,...

This is by far one of the most amazing experiences of my entire life. We were picked up from our hotel and driven up to the ranch. The driver talked to us about the history of the area and was really funny and nice. Once we got there, the staff was great and took the time to teach you everything...

Just wanted to thank the team at sky high wilderness tours from myself and my partner. Although she didn't partake in the dog sledding for me it was an amazing experience I will never forget and will definitely try and come back to do it again. Highly recommend for anyone heading up to Yukon.
