Whistler Blackcomb are featuring a profile on everyone’s favorite multi talented Canadian Wilderness Adventures team member Kim Eijdenberg cat driver for the Mountain Top Fondue and trail groomer and chef for our Sproatt Steak Night and Yukon Breakfast tours at our backcountry cabin on Mount Sproatt in the Callaghan Valley and incredibly talented photographer.
There’s nothing more Canadian than snowmobiling through the backcountry of British Columbia, then chowing down on an old-fashioned Yukon-style mountain feast. Those of us at Canadian Wilderness Adventures aren’t surprised our Yukon Breakfast snowmobile tour was named one of the Top 50 Signature Winter Experiences in Canada by the travel experts at FlightNetwork.com. However, if you haven’t embarked on one of our Yukon Breakfast tours yet, you may be wondering why, with so much competition, our tour made spot No. 35 on the list.
Flight Network is a popular Toronto-based online travel agency, and their team of intrepid travelers set out to find the most distinctly Canadian winter experiences across the country. While some adventures, like visiting Quebec City’s Hotel de Glace Ice hotel and skiing the steeps at Revelstoke, made the list for obvious reasons, our Yukon Breakfast snowmobile tour was selected for its impressive combination of winter adventure, unrivaled natural beauty, and authentic Canadian eats.
About the Tour
The Yukon Breakfast snowmobile tour is one of our favorites, because it brings the best of one of our country’s most rugged territories to beautiful Whistler, British Columbia. Visitors can spend a day away from the hustle and bustle of the ski resorts and discover the picture-perfect backcountry of the Callaghan Valley. Those who choose this experience will snowmobile throughout the wilderness to Sproatt Mountain, where our rustic cabin and a traditional Canadian Yukon breakfast await.
Cooked in a skillet on an old-fashioned wood stove, your meal will include Canadian favorites, like Yukon gold potatoes, Canadian bacon, scrambled eggs, local veggies, cheddar cheese, and of course, pancakes with authentic Canadian maple syrup. There’s no better way to fuel yourself for speeding across a frozen lake or touring the snow-covered alpine terrain surrounding the cabin. This 4-hour-long excursion comes to a close with an enjoyable cruise back to our homebase in Whistler.
Our Yukon Breakfast snowmobile tour may be the only tour featured on Flight Network’s list, but our Canadian Wilderness Adventures guides are eager to help you discover the beauty and thrills of a Canadian winter in a number of other ways. Try the three-hour Blackcomb Mountain snowmobile safari, a snowshoeing trip along the Medicine Trail, dogsledding on open, winding trails, or an exclusive fondue dining experience at 6,000 feet.
Every excursion we offer at Canadian Wilderness Adventures is one that is unique to Canada and our fascinating slice of the Great White North. To us, all of them are signature Canadian winter experiences.
Spring, to many people, means the arrival of allergies or a time to do a big clean. To us here at Canadian Wilderness Adventures, it is a time to truly experience Whistler. Here are 5 ways to enjoy Spring in Whistler:
Spring is the perfect time to explore without large crowds. Whether it be walking the village stroll, biking the valley trail, exploring the numerous hiking trails, or joining us on one of our tours, there are many ways to experience what Whistler has to offer.
