  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of two adults, 5 dogs and two horses looking for help on our 7 acres in the wilderness. We are settled in a beautiful valley outside of Atlin with access to nearby rivers, lakes and stunning highcountry. The town of Atlin is appr. 16km away. Amazing scenery and a wonderful adventure playground.

    Atlin is located two hours south of Whitehorse/Yukon. The only access is through the Yukon.
