Day 4 - Whitehorse

Enjoy today exploring Whitehorse and the surronding area. We recommend taking a short hike around Miles Canyon. Almost nine million years ago, a rush of basaltic lava spread over a pre-glacial landscape a few kilometres from what is now downtown Whitehorse. A ribbon of fast-moving turquoise water runs between the cliffs that remain and forms Miles canyon. Soak up the Whitehorse history with a visit to Mc Bride Museum, a dynamic museum, dedicated to promoting the value, understanding and enjoyment of Yukon history.

Today make the drive from Whitehorse to Haines Junction. Haines Junction is a picturesque mountain village nestled at the edge of Kluane National Park - the perfect base for day excursions like hiking, canoeing and river rafting. View Mount Logan - Canada's highest mountain.

Twenty kilometres from Haines Junction is Kathleen Lake, known as the windiest lake in the Yukon. Bird watching will give you a chance at seeing harlequins, northern pintails, American wigeon, lesser yellowlegs and spotted sandpipers. If you brought your fishing rod and fishing license purchased in Haines Junction, you can catch rainbow, lake trout, kokanee and grayling.

Day 6 - Haines Junction to Haines

Your drive today takes you across to Alaska to the town of Haines. 

Haines, Alaska is a town of 2,500 that has always been a port on Portage Cove, the furthest you can sail inside the Inside Passage.

Downtown Haines offers shopping and restaurants that serve halibut a week fresher than any other you have likely ever tried. The Alaska Indian Arts Center will give you a chance to meet with local artisans and carvers and buy their crafts. Visit Kroschel Films Wildlife and Educational Centre or trek along Takshanuk Mountain Trail. There’s a host of ways to enjoy this Alaskan town, including sightseeing tours of the eagle preserve and area. Check out the CanaDream app to see discounts available to you.

In the evening just before dusk, drive five minutes along the shore on Lutak Road (just follow the signs to the ferry terminal) and turn left when you reach the bridge. Just down this road, you will find a weir across a river. Park your camper and watch the show: Bears will come in from the forest on the other side of the river to feast on the salmon slowed by the weir and eagles will dive into the water right in front of you. It is an amazing sight.

Continuing your drive to Skagway, taking the ferry is the most efficent way to get there as driving there takes 8 hours. 

Skagway today, as it was in 1898, is a bustling town with false-fronted stores and boarded sidewalks. This town knows how to keep that Gold Rush era flavour alive. There are historic buildings, tours of graveyards, gold dredge exhibits and restaurants that sit right on the harbour.

The White Pass Railway and Yukon Route has done a marvellous job of offering a breathtaking and authentic journey. People come from all over the world to experience this trip on a rail system that is considered one of the seven engineering wonders of the world.
