Whitehorse Named after the treacherous rapids of
Miles Canyon which resembled the galloping silhouettes of white horses, this city is the capital of the Yukon. The arrival of the
Whitepass and Yukon railway put it firmly on the map as a transportation centre and you can still experience this historic rail journey today. In July the
Whitehorse Rodeo takes place and summer evenings linger on due to the midnight sun at the end of June. Visit the
SS Klondike (a 1937 sternwheeler and national historic site) giving an insight into the heady goldrush days.
The Klondike At the conflence of the Klondike and Yukon rivers lies
Dawson City. The discovery of gold at
Bonanza Creek in the 19th century changed the landscape of the Yukon forever. Gold Rush fever had arrived and the evidence of these heady days can still be found in the restored wooden buildings and historic sites of this city. Relive this era and try your hand at gold panning or visit
Diamond Tooth Gerties Gambling Hall where you can still play roulette and blackjack.
Kluane National Park and Reserve A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this park contains over 2,000 glaciers and has the largest non-polar icefield in the world. The surging
Lowell Glacier has iceburgs that continue to slide down its front which makes for an impressive sight. Home to Dall sheep, woodland caribou and wolves, wildlife is in abundance. Spot solitary grizzly bears roaming the alpine clearings.
