Mention the Yukon and for many the 1898 Klondike Goldrush comes to mind. Today visitors from all over the world come to Dawson City to relive this exciting period of Yukon’s history.
The capital of the territory is Whitehorse with a vibrant cultural and arts community.
The winter has its own attractions, with excellent skiing, ice-fishing, snow-mobiling, dog sleigh racing (including the world famous Yukon Quest.)
Many consider that Yukon’s greatest attraction is its wildlife. Opportunities for fishing are also excellent.
Take a trip on the water, be it by paddle-wheeler, whitewater raft, kayak or canoe.
The First Nations People hold many cultural events and extend a true Yukon welcome.
