Yukon Territory, June 2016. Legacy Tourism Group is actively working with local First Nations on developing three new unique wilderness Tourism operations within the Yukon Territory.

Parks Canada/Carcross Tagish First Nation – Chilkoot Trail Camp project.

This is a tri-party project that includes Parks Canada, Carcross Tagish First Nation and a private operator. A small camp including several sleeping tents and a common cookhouse is being established at the historic Bennett townsite. Legacy Tourism Group is providing consultation services to CTFN, specifically referencing the creation of authentic infrastructure and accompanying client services. This is the first such public/private/First Nation partnership to go to ground in a Northern National Park and LTG is excited to have been invited to be part of the delivery team. Bennett remains one of the most remarkable legacies of the Klondike Goldrush and the tourism product being created will be a world class attraction.

Champagne-Aishihik First Nation. Resort development on Kathleen Lake.

CAFN has been contemplating the creation of a potential tourism asset on the shore of Kathleen Lake for some time. Legacy Tourism Group has been contracted to build on the original research to provide a Phase I, pre-feasibility report with recommendations supported by a corresponding market analysis. As a partner in the co-management of parts of Kluane National Park CAFN has an opportunity to create an extraordinary tourism experience.

Carcross-Tagish First Nation. Bennett Beach Resort.

Legacy Tourism Group have completed the Phase I pre-feasibility work and are now awaiting approval to begin the second phase of the detailed, tourism concept development work. This project will include a destination resort as well as a la carte services for the visitors who are already coming for the world-class mountain biking and cultural experiences found in the Carcross Commons development.
