Muktuk Adventures

In a remote area of Yukon Territory, on the banks of the Takhini River, a man named Frank Turner - who has completed the gruelling Yukon Quest, a 1,000-mile sled-dog race, more times than anyone else - has established a truly wonderful community, centred around caring for his beloved sled-dogs. In recent years, the Muktuk Kennels have, in fact, grown into a massively popular excursion for visitors to Whitehorse - and it is not hard to see exactly why. The staff at Muktuk Kennels - who look after over 140 sled-dogs (mainly huskies, samoyeds and malumuts) - are deeply committed to the animals, and always try to include visitors in their daily care routines, while the eco-friendly guest houses (all operated on solar power) are comfortable, and homely, and offer panoramic views of the spectacular, unspoilt Ibex Valley. As popular in winter, when you can have a go at 'mushing' yourself, as in summer - when, for health reasons, the dogs aren't run, and canoeing and kayaking on the lake are the most popular activities - Muktuk Adventures is a heart-warming place to visit, that is sure to appeal to dog-lovers and nature-lovers the world over.

Banks and bureaux de change will change money and travellers cheques, as will some hotels, but the rate will not be as good. Major credit cards are widely accepted and ATMs are plentiful.
