Sky High Wilderness Ranch is your chance to get out and experience the beautiful wilderness that is the Yukon! There's no better way to ease the stresses of everyday than to switch off those mobile phones and soak in natures beauty. We have limited cell service, so put an 'out of office' reply on your emails and forward your phone to voicemail, you're going to spend sometime getting down and dirty with nature!

Our Ranch is located on the shores of Fish Lake and is surrounded by majestic mountains that are waiting to be explored by you atop your trusted horse. We have a range of accommodation to choose from, all come equipped with 5 star outhouses! All of our appliances and lights are run off propane and our buildings are heated by a cosy woodstove, we also haul water in from down town. This is the genuine Yukon Ranch experience, complete with rustic home cooked meals as well.
