Yukon is a land full of rich and dramatic vistas, crystal clear lakes, ice fields, wild rivers and jaw-dropping pristine wilderness.
Yukon is home to Mount Logan, Canada’s highest peak and the world’s largest non-polar icefield. The crimson carpet of the tundra, the mountain ranges and national parks including Kluane, Tombstone and Ivvavik are a haven to an abundance of wildlife such as grizzly bears, wolves, caribou and millions of migratory birds. Lynx, coyotes, foxes and scores of small mammals thrive in its forests.
Yukon also offers visitors a rich cultural experience, almost a quarter of Yukoners are of Aboriginal ancestry and you will find many opportunities to learn of how their culture has evolved into the rich tapestry of dialects, arts, crafts, cuisines, and practices that play a significant role in all aspects of the Yukon society today.
Follow the history of the gold rush days, when in August 1896 three men found gold on Bonanza Creek near Dawson City, launching the legendary Klondike Gold Rush. Dawson City is still a lively place today, an authentic frontier town bursting with heritage sites and attractions.
Visitors can also experience one of the world’s legendary road trips - the scenic Alaska Highway was built in 1942 and completed in only 8 months. Built to transport war supplies, more than 30,000 US Army personnel were involved in the construction of over 2,230 km of road to Alaska.
