Along the way we will stop at several picturesque waterfalls, an iconic Canadian cafe chain and an award winning winery. During short walks along tee lined paths at these smaller falls, you’ll learn about the geology of the area followed by a stop at a coffee shop chain that has become part of the Canadian identity. Then, we’ll hop in the car and continue to Niagara's wine region, where we will stop for a tasting (including ICE wine) at one of Niagara Regions most award winning wineries.

Horseback Riding in the Appalachians
You begin your equine experience with a visit into our sizeable herd of 40 horses, where you will be able to approach and observe the horses in their natural environment, and learn interesting facts about them. Next, each client will be matched with a horse according to their size and experience. You will lead your horse by foot to the stable, and will be able to establish mutual confidence through brushing and other preparations. Once everyone is helmeted-up, we leave the stable for the paddocks. There, mounted and with stirrups adjusted, we give a short lesson on riding techniques. The enclosed paddock is the ideal place for each rider to test what they've learned about horseback riding. After the initiation, we leave for an excursion on the magnificent mountain trails with their splendid view over the Appalachian range. At the halfway point, we will stop on the mountain top to take in the beautiful view. The activity ends by showing appreciation to our horse for the lovely ride. At the end, we invite you to stay a while longer and take advantage of the surroundings and our picnic area, in the event that you packed a snack. Consider trying our other animal experiences with alpacas, dogs and the other inhabitants of our educational farm. Other things to note This activity is offered throughout the year, in all weather. Only children 14 years and over are accepted. For younger children, reserve in our 'equestrian initiation' activity. The trail ride happens principally at a walking pace, with some trotting if possible, but generally not galloping.

Intro to Pottery wheel
With guided, professional instruction, you'll have a fun and creative time making an item out of clay on a pottery wheel. I will show you how to work with the clay, get it ready for the wheel, center it, and eventually start shaping. Usually students can make either a small bowl, plate, mug or vase on their first try. You will get up to 30 minutes of time on the wheel which is plenty to create one item, and then you can add accents to your piece i.e. handle and you'll get to handbuild for the remainder of the time (add accents to your piece). You can take the pottery home with you the same day you make them, or—if you'd like—I can fire your work, glaze it, and ship it to you for a small fee. I also offer other experiences: canvas painting, glass fusing, hand building with clay, mosaics, glow in the dark painting, pottery painting, silkscreening. ***Drop me a note if you'd like alternate time for your appointment.****

View Northern lights/aurora in a comfortable warm cabin
I'll pick you up from a downtown accommodation/location or along the Alaska Hwy or the North Klondike Hwy (ONLY between downtown and Takhini Gas Station) at night. We'll drive to our cabin/viewing site (25 mins north of Whitehorse City)... an area with the best chance to see Northern Lights (Aurora). It has an open field on the north with nothing blocking our view so that the very low Aurora can be seen here. Weather permitting, we see Aurora almost every night as we are located at the best area (just north of Whitehorse city) to see Aurora. We do not have to drive for hours... Total duration of the tour is about 4.5 hours. We will wait and watch the aurora from the comfort of our rustic and warm cabin... watching from the windows. Go out only if you like (esp to take photos) and come into the cabin as soon as you feel cold. Don't need to worry about the -30 degrees temperature or be cramped in a foggy vehicle. We provide free flow of hot drinks and snacks. Sharp wide-angled photos of you (with aurora on the background) are taken and given to you at no additional fee. We do not need to "chase the Aurora" in a cramp vehicle (which many people can do on their own)... Aurora is up in the sky so we just wait for it to appear inside the warm comfort of our cabin! We can start a bonfire (campfire) outside if needed and you can BBQ your own meat, sausages or marshmallows.
