Top Tips for Visiting Yukon
1. Visiting in Summer
If you would like to experience Yukon in the warmer weather, we suggest you visit between May and October. The average temperature in July is around 20 degrees and with 20 hours of daylight, you can enjoy countless activities every day.
2. Visiting in Winter
Alternatively, if you would love to see the province coated in snow, visit between November and April. Make sure you pack lots of layers – the temperatures can drop to a chilly -13 degrees with just 4.5 hours of daylight in December.
3. Wildlife Watching
Dreaming of catching a glimpse of some of the wildlife that calls Yukon home? The summer months are the ideal time for spotting majestic creatures throughout the landscape.
4. See the Northern Lights
If you would like to visit in the winter but you’re concerned about the colder weather, fear not – the chillier months are the perfect time to watch the Aurora Borealis light up the night sky. For your best viewing chances, choose a clear evening around midnight.
5. Visit Dawson City
Dawson City is worth a visit, as it is a great combination of a modern city that is also home to wooden sidewalks, saloon bars and dirt streets.
