Nowhere else in Canada inspires thoughts of adventure and wilderness like the Yukon Territory. Made famous by the Klondike gold rush in the late 1800’s the Yukon has become synonymous with adventure.
The southern region of the Yukon is a vast land of mountains, valleys, lakes and rivers making it the perfect location for your next adventure. Canoeing is a popular activity and ingrained in the history of the territory. Numerous rivers such as the Yukon, Teslin, Wind and Big Salmon are considered some of the best paddling rivers in the world. Fishing opportunities are second to none, with many remote fly-in lakes throughout the southern Yukon. The northern lights or aurora borealis can also be seen during the fall and winter months shimmering and dancing across the sky.
The highest mountains in Canada and some of the most awe-inspiring glaciers are found in the Yukon. This region is home to Kluane National Park , the site of the largest non-polar icefields in the world and the greatest diversity of wildlife north of 60 degrees latitude. Though remote the Yukon has an impressive road system that allows you to access much of the area by vehicle. Van tours are popular and a great way to explore this vast land.
The Yukon has a strong dogsledding heritage and the area is known for the famous Yukon Quest dogsled race. Visitors can come and arrange their own mushing adventure and experience this purest form of winter travel for themselves.
