Plan your next adventure vacation in the Yukon

Yukon Territory Adventures in Canada can be enjoyed with 24 hour sunlight or 24 hour starlight and then there is somewhere in between. The Yukon is the land of the midnight sun. The northern Canada territory is filled with vast wilderness, long in gold rush history and abundant in wildlife. Above all this is "postcard" country.

Yukon Territory Adventures

The northern landscape is home to many Yukon Territory adventures. For example, directly to the south 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. Therefore summer enjoys canoeing, hiking, mountain biking, camping to name a few. While the winter months provide snowshoeing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, and dog sledding adventures.

Yukon Territory Canada Capital City

The Yukon Territory capital city is the City of Whitehorse (aka The Wilderness City). Therefore it is the largest city in the northern regions of Canada and it is located at the 918 mile marker on the Alaska Highway.  The capital city is the transportation, service and commercial centre of the region. It is ideally set on the banks of the Yukon River and on the curb of the Alaska Highway. Most importantly, the city is a popular staging area for many Yukon Territory adventures.

Yukon Territory Highlights

The Yukon's highlights are endless. They include the Alaska Highway (top rated destination route for RVing); the Northern Lights- Aurora Borealis (best viewing time between August and April); daylight hours (about 260 hours of sunshine in June and only 25 hours in December); Yukon Quest (1000 mile dog sled competition); there are approximately 50,000 moose, 10,000 black bears and 4,500 wolves in the Yukon. Lastly, 80% of the Yukon is still considered wilderness country. 

Parks, Trails and Places of Interest

The parks and trails to explore include the Kluane National Park (Mount Logan, Canada’s highest peak); Ivvavik (protected calving area for the northern Porcupine Caribou Herd); Carcross Desert (world's smallest desert measuring 260 hectares); Dempster Highway (the only highway to cross into the Arctic Circle in North America); and the Yukon River (4th longest river in North America at 3,520 kms).
