Ibex Valley Cabin
Ibex Valley Log Cabin
Take a short 45 minute drive from Whitehorse, west on the Alaska Highway towards Haines Junction. The wide Takhini Valley, once victim of a widespread wildfire now features a vast and vital ecosystem of new grown firs, spruce and poplars.
Sprinkled with numerous meadows and ponds this area allows for a fantastic bird population, ranging from sand pipers to hawks and eagles.
A full day hike starting close to the cabin will lead you through the Ibex Valley with its turquoise lakes and steep rock formation where the rare Ibex Sheep once roamed. Today you may spot the white flecks of Dall Sheep, listen to the excited shrieks of ground squirrels or – most of the time enjoy total solitude and quietness.
Your cabin is placed in a private spot, a few meters before the end of a drive way. Pyramid Mountain, the highest Peak of the Ibex Ridge, is seen to the south and invites for an amazing hike.
