Shine Valley - Yukon

Experience Level

Pack Trip

5 star rating   17 August 2017

This was a fantastic adventure, I had a great horse named Reno who was only 4 years old but did a great job to take care of me during that trek.
Reno was very agile and careful as the terrain was very challenging almost every day.

The first two nights and last night were spent in the yurt very comfortable, just one comment maybe to provide a thicker mattress.
The rest of the trip I had my individual tent which was perfect.

The food was amazing ! Veronique our host is a great cook!
We had a variety of food every day, we were really spoiled.

I can't think of anything for this first trip.


Do you have any other feedback for us?

What an adventure ! this was my dream horse riding trip.
The host Pierre, Veronique and their helpers for the Summer Christina and Christeen did a fantastic job to look after us, please praise them for their work.
I experienced their way of life, learned to look after pack horse, learnt about Yukon history and so much more. We saw some wildlife, had access to river, lake and stream everyday.

The ride was challenging, although we only walked, the terrain was hard work on some days.
The terrain require to be vigilant everyday.
Please ensure you have a good sun cream/ lip balm and drink a lot of water!
The scenery is just amazing ! Real picture postcard scenery.
I will never forget that adventure and maybe come back one day!
Thank you again for this unforgettable adventure
