Last year Madison was one of the lucky grand prize winners of our Great Big Move challenge. She got to go on a five-day trip with her mom to the Yukon, courtesy of Travel Yukon. We spoke with Madison to hear all about their fantastic trip of a lifetime!
How was your overall experience in the Yukon?
How did this trip compare to your previous travel experiences? What made it stand out from other trips you’ve taken?
What activities and tours did you do?
We did an abundance of activities! We hiked up to Fish Lake and went horseback riding around it, canoed 28 kilometres down the Yukon River, visited a wildlife sanctuary and relaxed in some truly amazing hot springs. I had never done horseback riding before, but my mom had, so getting to do that with her was tons of fun!
