Yukon Experience
 
Yukon Wildlife Preserve logo      
Though knitting and qiviuq are the focus of the weekend, you will also experience the Yukon. In addition to seeing the muskox at the Yukon Wildlife Preserve, you will have an informative tour of the Preserve to see the other northern animals – caribou, mule deer, bison, moose, elk, mountain goats & sheep.
 
Takhini Hot Springs logo      
Just down the road from the Preserve is Takhini Hot Springs, a natural mineral spring where you can swim or soak to relax. At the end of March, it will still be winter in the Yukon, but the sun will have returned. You will sit in the hot pools, head cool, body hot, enjoying the mountains that surround you. It is a wonderful experience!

(What more does a person need?)
