- 10 Days
Canada's only all-weather road across the Arctic Circle is among the world's most unique driving routes. With services at both ends, and one lone outpost in the middle, this unpaved two lane highway is an original driving adventure. The isolation and variable conditions can prove challenging, but the abundant wildlife, easy access to the tundra and expansive views are unmatched
Days 1-2 – Planning Your Dempster Driving Adventure
An enjoyable, safe journey up the Dempster Highway involves careful planning. Ensure you have good spare tires and do some basic vehicle maintenance. You'll find everything you need at Whitehorse garages, stores and service suppliers before you head north on the North Klondike Highway. You may also want to plan your accommodations in advance.
Day 10 – Southbound Migration
Whether you take your time or drive through to Dawson City in a day, soak in the spectacular tundra scenery and abundant wildlife. Early summer brings a flush of young animals, mid-summer heralds long days under the midnight sun, and late summer visitors are treated to crimson and gold tundra vegetation.
Yukon's hotels and motels are an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area. You'll be set for comfort and convenience on a multi-day stay. Or stop in for a welcoming place to spend the night while road-tripping around the territory.
