Meet Your Hosts

Bruce Mitford and Beth Hunt have lived, worked and raised a family on a remote trap line in the Central Yukon for more than twenty years. Caring for 15 sled dogs and using them as the main source of travel for nearly six months of the year is a big part of the life on their wilderness homestead.

Since 1979 Bruce has been working his trap line by dog team each winter, creating a system of trails with comfortable cabins spaced at 12 km intervals. Each location is unique reflecting the different moods of the country.

Bruce has also been a hunters' guide, carpenter, and geologist's assistant, all jobs which have given him ample experience in bush living.

Beth's life involves all aspects of bush living from hunting, trapping and berry picking to teaching her two daughters' school lessons. Beth is literally the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker. An avid gardener in the summer and an enthusiastic dog musher in the winter, Beth is a great cook too. Both Bruce and Beth have their First Aid and CPR certificate.


Bruce and Beth are carving a living from some of Canada's most remote bush along the banks of the Stewart river at the mouth of the Lansing river. Their cache and cellars are always overflowing with the bounty of their garden and fall hunt. Wealthy beyond imagination with life's experiences they are living the life that most of us only dream about but never muster the courage to pursue. Pioneers, Homesteaders, The Last Trapper, perhaps.... One thing is for certain, Bruce and Beth got it all, right out their front door and they would love to share the experience with you.

Those who have already visited know, Lansing is a wonderful spot! Come see for yourself....
