Yukon

The name Yukon is evocative as well as descriptive: adventure, the far north, wilderness, moose. How can you even hear ‘Yukon’ and not feel a stirring within? This vast and thinly populated wilderness – most four-legged species far outnumber humans – has a grandeur and beauty only appreciated by experience.

Few places in the world today have been so unchanged over the course of time. Aboriginal people, having eked out survival for thousands of years, hunt and trap as they always have. The Klondike Gold Rush of 1898 was the Yukon’s high point of population, yet even its heritage is ephemeral, easily erased by time.

Any visit will mean much time outdoors. Canada’s five tallest mountains and the world’s largest ice fields below the Arctic are all within Kluane National Park. Canoe expeditions down the Yukon River are epic. You’ll appreciate the people; join the offbeat vibe of Dawson City and the bustle of Whitehorse.
