Yukon Territories Travel Guide

Welcome to the Yukon

In the summer, days are long, and the Yukon Territory is the land of the midnight sun. In the Yukon winters, days are short, and the Yukon is the land of the northern lights. Year round, the Yukon, Canada is an adventure destination recognized for its sightseeing highways, wildlife sightings, rivers and lakes, heritage sites and trails, historic buildings, dog sledding, First Nation art, the Klondike Gold Rush and so much more.

The Yukon is a wilderness playground surrounded by wilderness playgrounds. Directly to the south of the Yukon is the Liard River Basin and to the north is the Arctic Circle. To the east is the Mackenzie Mountain Range and to the west are the Ogilvie, St Elias and Dawson Mountain Ranges.

Yukon Canada was first explored via its network of rivers and lakes. The First Nation people explored the waterways for hunting, fishing and traveling from village to village. Then came the miners. They followed the same rivers and lakes in their quest for gold during the Klondike Gold Rush.

Today, the Yukon is a popular choice for travel & RVing because of the network of highways in the Yukon Territory.

Travel to the Yukon, discover historic rivers and lakes through an extensive network of waterways, providing endless opportunities for travel and outdoor activities in the territory like canoeing, fishing, kayaking, river rafting and boating. Adventures like hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, horseback riding and off roading await your participation.

Each community, big and small, provides directions for self guided heritage tours visiting with museums, galleries, historic buildings, sites and artifacts. Your Yukon travel experience can include historic riverboats, trapper cabins, famous poets, writers, roadhouses, motels, saloons, art galleries and so on. There are heritage buildings and artifacts dating back to the 1900s hosted by actors in period clothing.

Travel to the Yukon in the winter months and see the most amazing discplay of the Northern Lights. The days get shorter, the ground is covered in snow, lakes and rivers are frozen and the temperatures drop below zero. Perfect conditions for winter adventures like; dog sledding, alpine skiing, heli-skiing, snowmobiling, cross country skiing and ice fishing.

We welcome you to the north of Canada! Yukon, Canada travel and adventure is just a click away.
