Elisabeth Weigand, the owner, published two books about the Yukon, working on a third. These volumes feature autobiographical narrations of her adventures in Canada, her “Promised Land”.
Yukon River Expedition describes the 2000 miles and long journey down the Majestic Yukon River. For nearly 2 month she and her partner paddled a canoe through the Yukon and right across Alaska from the origin of the Yukon River to the Bering Sea. Exhausting and inspiring experiences with wildlife and nature’s forces are paired with amazing encounters meeting the people of the land.
Seven Month of White Solitude narrates the stories of a long winter in a self built cabin set back in the Coast Mountains, B.C. Together with her partner she experienced a kaleidoscope of emotions and passions, failings and accomplishments, melancholy and bliss.
Licence to happiness will be the attempt to describe the rapture of her immigration to Canada. Woven together with getting, training and enjoying her first horse, we learn about hope, determination, love, trust and unbound happiness.
Elisabeth Weigand (Owner)
Born and raised in Germany I was searching the land and seas for a purpose to be. I traveled through Europe, sailed the Mediterranean Sea and trekked up the Himalaya. I crossed desserts in the Middle East and journeyed to the Chinese Continent, but not sooner did I find my “Promised Land” until I discovered Canada.
I had arrived. The search was over. Immigrated in 1993 and never regretted it ever since.
