Yukon Overview

Kluane National Park Yukon Territories CA

 

Promoting itself as “larger than life”, Yukon Territories is Canada’s second smallest province at just over 480 square kilometers. Its population is just over 34,000 - talk about elbow room! Located in the northwestern corner of Canada, its borders are the U.S. state of Alaska to the west, Beaufort Sea to the north, Northwest Territories to the east and British Columbia to its south. First Nation customs and beliefs are honored in Yukon, and there is an active Francophone community.

Capital and largest city, Whitehorse, is home to two-thirds of Yukon’s population. The Alaska Highway is the primary roadway through town, and an International Airport is available. A number of Yukon hotels are located in this area for convenience sake, as Yukon College, Arts Centre and Canada Games Centre are all located here. To get your heart pumping, walk across a suspension bridge high above the Yukon River at Miles Canyon or climb Grey Mountain in a 4-wheel drive – both activities provide unsurpassed views. Visiting in the summer? Stroll along Millennium Trail, stopping to see the spawning Chinook Salmon at the Fish Ladder, then hop aboard the Waterfront Trolley which stops at a variety of local attractions.

Tiny Dawson City is second largest, with not quite 2,000 residents; it is about an 8 hour drive northwest of Whitehorse on the North Klondike Highway. This city works hard to promote itself! See an operational gold mine, and try your luck at panning. Visitors also enjoy touring National Historic Sites such as the S.S. Keno, used to transport mined ores, and the beautiful 1899 Palace Grand Theatre. Tourism is, after all, the largest private sector employer in Yukon!

Kluane National Park is tucked into the southwestern corner of the province; you can visit Mount Logan, highest point in Canada and second highest in North America. This park is a National Historic Site and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Kluane’s land falls in the traditional territories of the Champagne and Aishihik, Kluane and White River First Nations. Ivvavik National park is located in the extreme northwestern corner, with bordering Vuntut National Park just to its south. Grab a photo of a polar bear here!

The breathtaking natural resources, abundant wildlife and spectacular wilderness shine in Yukon, and the area is a crucial habitat for rare and endangered species. See moose, caribou, grizzly bears, trumpeter swans, bald and golden eagles, and hawks. Streams and lakes are filled with arctic grayling, northern pike and lake trout, game animals and migratory birds – photographers, conservationists, hunters and anglers are all in heaven here! 

Outdoor activities reign supreme – you can kayak, canoe, ski, snowmobile, snowboard, dogsled and ice climb. The phenomena of summer midnight sun and winter northern lights are on display here, just waiting for you to discover them for yourself. Visit Yukon for the most significant visit ever!
