Things To Do in Yukon
1. Kluane National Park and Reserve
Kluane National Park is the perfect stop for any thrill-seekers in Yukon. Packed full of ice fields, lush forestry and lofty mountain peaks, this park is home to over 22,000km of wilderness that is just waiting to be discovered. We suggest you camp here to truly become one with nature, before rafting the Alsek River and mountaineering in the Icefield Ranges.
2. Visit Dawson City
Explore the legend of the Klondike Gold Rush as you walk the streets of Dawson City. Situated along the Yukon riverbank, the city almost feels frozen in time and is home to a rich historical legacy that can only be found in this, the treasure of Yukon. You can even try panning for gold yourself in one of the operating mines!
3. Tour the SS Klondike
Now a national historic site in Canada, visiting the SS Klondike allows you to discover the development of the Yukon River. We suggest you take a guided tour of the interior before embarking on a stroll along the Millennium Walkway Trail.
4. MacBride Museum:
One of the gems of the province, the MacBride Museum will teach you all about Yukon’s coloured past. From Gold Rush fever to the birth of Whitehorse, this museum has engaging, entertaining exhibits to cover it all. If you’re visiting in July, make sure you check out the desserts and jazz events held at the museum.
5. Miles Canyon :
Perhaps the most dramatic element of Whitehorse’s landscape is Miles Canyon, where the mighty Yukon River cuts through basaltic lava flows. Walk across the 85-foot suspension bridge and gaze in wonder at the rapids beneath you. Once you are ready to leave, view the majesty from above from an overlook on Miles Canyon Trail, or walk one of the many trains for unique vantage points.
