Testimonials

What some of our past clients have to say about our northern edible adventures:

Rick and I have spent the last couple of days endlessly going through the quite stunning photos of our trip. We have discussed each adventure; the people, the whiskey, the wonderful Yukon hospitality and of course, the delicious food we enjoyed so much. Of course there has been much discussion about just how we managed to pack so very much! Our trip turned out to be singular in it’s beautiful setting, it’s keen sense of play and nally in it’s sense of true authenticity. We both felt we met real people in a real and compelling place.

Laura Irwin

Edible Canada’s Ultimate Canadian Whisky Dinner was an unparalleled introduction to the Yukon. Many Canadian’s don’t realize that Whitehorse is so accessible. The region’s hospitality begins as soon as you board the plane, with Air North attendants doling out fresh platters and warm cookies during the ight. Once you land, it’s a full of delicious, northern-in uenced food paired with some of the best adventures the Yukon has to offer: dog sledding, dinners on frozen lakes with the Northern Lights overhead, and visits to notorious spots like the McBride Museum, where we sampled the infamous Sour Toe Cocktail. Edible Canada has partnered with some of the best chefs in the territory, and they serve up local fare and game meats like arctic char, elk carpaccio, caribou smokies and wild mushroom soup. This is truly a bucket list trip—grab a few friends and spend a weekend exploring unchartered territory. The north may just be your new favourite weekend getaway.
