After 9 years of business Tom Parlee and Spence Hill decided to retire and sold Tom’s Touring Service to Black Bear Wilderness Adventures.
Black Bear Wilderness Adventures is a new and old company. Incorporated in July 2013, this new venue is based on more than twenty years of extensive experience in the Tourism Industry.
Having been an outdoor enthusiast all my life I immigratetd to the wonderful and wild Yukon Territory in 1993 and loved it ever since.
I worked in the Yukon Tourism Industry operating a highway lodge in Haines Junction, co-owning a canoeing, trail riding and hiking operation, an outdoor equipment rental service and offering and outfitting self-guided tours.
With everything I did since then I enjoyed the country’s enormous potential for outdoor activities, the wide open spaces with its abundent wildlife, its incredible flora and deep cultural history.
But more so I constantly followed my strong drive to present all this wonder& beauty of the Yukon to any guests willing to see, touch and enjoy it for themselves.
Black Bear Wilderness Adventures Inc. now offers full, Yukon-wide Transportation Service , Guided Wilderness Tours, Sightseeing in the greater Whitehorse area as well as Wilderness Cabin Rentals. We will help guests from all over the world to visit the Yukon and leave with a full sense of the True North.
Our vision always was and always will be to work to the fullest for complete satisfaction of each single client, while maintaining a healthy balance between tourism and nature’s conservation.
Elisabeth Weigand published two books about the Yukon, which are, alas, written in German.
Our pledge to you:
- Personal service, flexibility, attention to details
- Interpretation of all that makes the Yukon so special
- Environmental sensitivity – “Leave no trace experiences!”
