Travelling to Whitehorse on Friday via Calgary:

- Departure from the nearest airport on Friday morning/afternoon to Frankfurt or London

- Continue with Air Canada, Lufthansa (both Star Alliance) or British Airways to Calgary, Canada. Depending on the airline there will be a 2-4 hour layover, of which a large part will be spent with entry formalities. The entry to North America has become even more difficult since 9/11. It will take a while to deal with these formalities.

- Continue with Air North at 7:00 PM to Whitehorse. Arrival in Whitehorse at 9:45 PM. You must check out your luggage in Calgary and check it in for the flight with Air North. After this there are 2 possibilities

- Pick up at the airport with the hotel shuttle and an overnight stay in Whitehorse – pick up at 6 AM on Saturday, 2 hour drive to Atlin – breakfast upon arrival and safety orientation afterwards. Skiing starts at approximately 10:30 on Saturday

- OR shuttle to Atlin immediately after arriving in Whitehorse – arrival in Atlin at approximately 12:30 AM. After a good night sleep, breakfast will be served at 8:00 AM followed by the safety orientation and skiing at approximately 10:30 AM (same as above). This option is only possible if the hotel is not fully booked. The
advantage of option 2 is that all the travelling will be completed but travel time is 2-3 hours longer.

- Departure from the nearest airport on Friday morning/afternoon to Frankfurt, London or Amsterdam.

It will take a while to deal with these formalities.

- Continue to Whitehorse in the afternoon or evening with Air Canada (or with their econo-airline JAZZ). You must check out your luggage in Vancouver and check it in for your next flight. After this there are 2 possibilities:

- Pick up at the airport with the hotel shuttle and an overnight stay in Whitehorse – pick up at 6 AM on Saturday, 2 hour drive to Atlin – breakfast upon arrival and safety orientation afterwards. Skiing starts at approximately 10:30 on Saturday

- OR shuttle to Atlin immediately after arriving in Whitehorse. After a good night sleep, breakfast will be served at 8:00 AM followed by the safety orientation and skiing at approximately 10:30AM (same as above).

Travelling to Whitehorse on Saturday via Vancouver:

- Departure from the nearest airport on Friday morning/afternoon to Frankfurt or London, Paris, Amsterdam – depending on airlin

- Continue to Canada with Air Canada, Lufthansa (both Star Alliance), British Airways, KLM or other carriers to Vancouver, Canada. Entry formalities and hotel check in. We will gladly book the hotel for you. You must check out your luggage in Vancouver and check it back in for your Air North flight the next morning. Lockers are available at the airport.

- In Vancouver you can choose from several recreational activities and sightseeing

- Departure to Whitehorse on Saturday morning at 11:30 with Air North

- If possible select a seat on the left side of the aircraft (either towards the front or the back so that the wing does not interfere with your photograph). On the regular flight route and with good weather conditions you will see a large frozen lake approx. 160 km south of Whitehorse (the aircraft will already have started
the descend to Whitehorse). This is Atlin Lake, surrounded by the mountains you will be skiing. Arrival in Whitehorse at 1:45 PM

- Pick up in Whitehorse and shuttle to Atlin (approx. 2 hrs), hotel check-in, safety orientation, and dinner.

- First ski day will be Sunday.

The first option is the most favourable one as Air North offers Klondike Heliskiing a preferred rate, which neither Air Canada nor JAZZ are able to match. This low rate will be made available directly to our clients. In addition, this option offers the shortest travelling time and the most direct route.

When first we discovered the amazing mountains around Atlin in 1994 nobody could have guessed that this would become the heliski area with the best weather conditions in Canada.
