Yukon Territory

The Yukon Territory, in Canada's far northwest, is perhaps best known as the site of the Klondike Gold Rush. Towns such as Dawson City still offer a snapshot of the spirit of those times of boom and discovery in the late 19th century. However, what might intrigue adventure or nature lovers more than its human history is its landscape of endless skies, gigantic lakes and sharp, clean air.

 

The Yukon Territory consists mainly of mountain ranges cut by the mighty Yukon River and its tributaries. Indeed, Canada's highest mountain, Mt Logan, is situated in the Yukon.

 

Another popular draw to the Yukon Territory is its high recordings of the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis), ribbons of colour that illuminate the vast night skies.

 

Between the Yukon's most popular destinations you'll find Whitehorse, its capital city and also named Wilderness City.

 

Whitehorse is nestled on the banks of the famous Yukon River surrounded by mountains and pristine lakes. You can tour a restored sternwheeler, the SS Klondike (now a national historic site), or cruise Miles Canyon aboard the MV Schwatka.

 

Another of the Yukon's most popular destinations is Kluane National Park and Reserve, that covers an area of 21,980 square kilometres.

 

Kluane National Park and Reserve is a land of precipitous, high mountains, immense icefields and lush valleys that yield a diverse array of plant and wildlife species and provides for a host of outdoor activities.

 

Kluane National Park and Reserve is also home to Mount Logan (5959 m), Canada's highest peak.
