Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Enjoy the simplicity and privacy of this hand crafted Mongolian yurt. Set in 21 private acres on Cowley Lake, this is the perfect place to base your Yukon adventures and take time out to relax. The stunning lake and mountain views are worth the visit.

The space
Enjoy the privacy and comfort of our hand crafted Mongolian yurt. The yurt is set on a south facing deck with lake and mountain views. The yurt can sleep up to four guests and is kept warm and cosy with a simple woodstove.
The simplicity of the Yurt allows you to enjoy the beauty of the Yukon landscape at its fullest.
Please note that if the yurt is not available for your holiday dates we do have the option of the Cosy Cabin which sleeps 4 guests.

Guest access
Please note, in order to make the yurt available to guests during covid-19 we have made some changes to the areas guests have access to during their stay.
Guests will have sole use of the yurt and private outhouse.
Breakfast will NOT be included.
Guests will have sole access to a Winnebago camping car where there are simple cooking facilities and a fridge. We ask guests not to store food in the yurt as it can attract curious wildlife!
Guests will NOT have access to the main house, shower and laundry facilities. Thank you for respecting our family's private space during these changing times.
There is a canoe down on the lake you are welcome to take for a paddle. Children can enjoy the outdoor play area, soccer field, playhouse and tree house.
We also offer guided day hikes through the surrounding wilderness.
During the winter months, viewing of the northern lights is a major highlight!

Other things to note
The Yukon is evolving into quite the mountain bike mecca, and Traveling Light Bed and Breakfast is conveniently situated halfway between the amazing trails of Whitehorse and the spectacular biking trails of Carcross. The perfect place to base yourself for an amazing mountain biking adventure.
If you are coming in the winter months and plan to go on a dog mushing adventure, please take the time to book before you get here to make sure you get a dog team. My favorite place to go dog mushing is Sky High Wilderness Ranch out at Fish Lake.

Location

Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada

Traveling Light Bed and Breakfast is a 25 minute drive south of Whitehorse on the Klondike Highway. Surrounded by spectacular forest, lake and mountain views we are the perfect base for a peaceful Yukon adventure.
A short walk down the hill will take you straight to Cowley Lake where you can skate, ski and snowshoe in winter or swim and canoe in summer.
Our property is very private, but close enough to Whitehorse to be convenient for guests to travel in to have dinner.
Traveling Light Bed and Breakfast is perfectly situated in the Southern Lakes region of the Yukon where there is easy access to some of the most spectacular hiking, biking and skiing trails in the region.

During your stay
We usually love to spend time with our guests, but we would prefer to keep good social distancing in place at this moment in time. We hope to set our guests up to be as autonomous as possible during their stay, so we can still make the yurt available to visitors.
