TRAVEL GUIDE TO CANADA T he land north of the 60 th parallel serves up a menu of adventure tourism experiences to fl ood the senses: from watching northern lights dancing across jet black skies, to scooting across a frozen lake by dogsled or snowmobile, from canoeing, kayaking, rafting and boating to backcoun- try hiking, biking, horseback riding, camping and wildlife viewing. Add in some of the continent's most spectacular scenery, including mountains, lakes, desert and tundra, and you've got the ingredients for an unforgettable, authentic wilderness experience. Best of all, Yukon is on its game, year-round. CELEBRATE THE SEASONS Put aside notions of being housebound through a Yukon winter visit! The opposite is true—Yukoners know how to embrace the guaranteed snow of the season and they celebrate it with a host of outdoor activities, eccentric festivals, world-class races and competitions. Bundle up and jump in for sled dog mushing experiences, snow sculpture competitions, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. Grab a mug of hot chocolate and sit outside to watch the northern lights, described by poet Robert Service as "The wild sky is blazing." Summertime is a different story.
