With so much to experience in this beautiful Canadian territory, there’s simply no best time to visit the Yukon. From Klondike Gold Rush attractions, including restored false-fronted buildings and relics along old Stampeders’ routes, to pristine wilderness, untouched lands and remote waterways teeming with wildlife, a visit to the Yukon is one you won’t want to miss.
In the winter, a variety of fun activities attract tourists looking for incredible snowmobiling day trips, dog-sledding experiences, ice-fishing and, of course, awe-inspiring Northern Lights viewing. To combine all of these experiences in one stay – and perhaps even travel all the way to the Arctic Ocean to Tuktoyaktuk on an ice road, consider a wintertime Yukon tour. The chances of catching an Aurora Borealis show and all of the unique winter activities the Great North offers will make for a beautiful Canadian winter holiday.
Summertime, on the other hand, turns the land of the Midnight Sun into a treasure-trove of Yukon adventures. Whether you prefer a wilderness experience, full with Yukon camping, canoeing and hiking, or if you’d rather learn about Yukon history first-hand, picking up Klondike Gold Rush facts as you travel along in the Stampeders’ footsteps, our experienced guides will make sure you don’t miss a beat.
Long highways through spectacular panoramas, such as the Dempster Highway, will take you to parks where you’ll likely see caribou herds and moose, Dall sheep, wolves and much more! Tombstone Territorial Park will reveal to you the breathtaking, steep heights that give it its name, and you’ll see the glory of Mount Logan, the tallest peak in Canada, in Kluane National Park. Throughout, you can choose to travel by van, hike your way to discovering Yukon, or paddle down famous and lesser-known rivers with our guided tours.
City-based tourist attractions are also on the menu in our Yukon vacation packages. You’ll visit Dawson City (destination of the gold seekers of 1898), Whitehorse, and many smaller communities punctuating this Northern territory’s wilderness. Turn-of-century can-can shows, Totem pole carving demonstrations and delicious cuisine are just a few of the activities we propose to help you discover Yukon like you never thought possible!
