The Yukon is ideal for nature lovers and people looking to explore a great wilderness or stand a statistically strong chance of spotting the Northern Lights. See itinerary ideas
The province has more animals than people living in it, meaning that you’re in the right place to see grizzly bears, otters and other wildlife; head to Yukon Wildlife Reserve for the finest wildlife watching.
The Yukon is also held to be one of the best places on earth to catch a glimpse of the remarkable Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights.
Away from the wilderness, explore Witehorse to learn more about the Klondike Gold Rush of 1898 and the culture of First Nations and Inuit tribes. Dawson City still operates as a Gold Rush town too, with working saloons, theatres and Diamond Tooth Gertie’s gambling house providing a perfect insight into the past. You can even pan for gold yourself at Bonanza Creek.
