A legacy of significant history
The Yukon may be famous for its gold rush history and diverse First Nations cultures, but there are countless stories that weave the tapestry of our heritage.
Mammoths to Mounties
Woolly mammoths and scimitar cats once roamed this region known as Beringia. Transportation was crucial to the growth of contemporary Yukon: the White Pass & Yukon Route railway, aviation, and the construction of the Alaska Highway. The story of the Canadian Mountie is rooted in the Yukon, and the territory also has a lesser known but just as colourful silver mining history.
