Amazing Race Canada 2 - Week 5: HKG, YXY

Yukon Visitor Information Center
The Yukon is ready to welcome you!

From Hong Kong, the teams flew back to Canada, via Vancouver, and up to Whitehorse. Miss the episode? You can watch it here.

Want to go where the teams did, and do what the teams did?

The teams emerged from Week 4's pitstop in Macau - which began in the heart of the casino action at Praça de Ferreira do Amaral - at the Kun Iam Statue.Things to do in MacauMacau skyline 2013
We didn't see all the details, but the teams hopped another Turbojet, then flew from Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) to Whitehorse Airport (YXY), in Canada's Yukon Territory.#ExploreYukon Through The Amazing Race Canada

The first part of the week's competition began with Make Your Bed (which involved setting up a campsite) or Ride a Sled (gearing up a dog sled team then letting the dogs take them for a run). Definitely fun to watch.Whitehorse Copper Trail

At the Biathalon Yukon Course, one member of each team had to ride a snow bike on a 1 kilometre (0.62 mile) course in the woods, then lay flat at the shooting range, and calmly (!?!) shooting the targets (with another bike around the track for misses), until all 5 targets were hit.Grey Mountain
