Constructed during World War II, the Alaska Highway is world renown and is a smooth, scenic route into the North which stretches from Watson Lake near the British Columbia border to Beaver Creek at the Alaska border.
Start your Yukon scenic drive along the Alaska Highway in Watson Lake and visit the town’s world-famous Sign Post Forest. Next stop is Teslin, home of the Inland Tlingit people. A popular destination for fishing and boating, this scenic lakeside community has a proud artistic and cultural heritage. From Teslin, visit Yukon’s capital, Whitehorse known as the Wilderness City for good reason. Surrounded by forests and mountains, the Yukon River flows through downtown Whitehorse and trails criss-cross the city. Visit the S.S. Klondike on the waterfront, MacBride Museum , Beringia Centre and galleries showcasing the work of Yukon’s talented artists.
Beyond Whitehorse, the Alaska Highway parallels the majestic outer rim of Kluane National Park from the mountain village of Haines Junction to Destruction Bay, Burwash Landing, ending its Canadian journey at Beaver Creek. Offering spectacular glacier flightseeing, hiking, horseback riding, wildlife viewing, canoeing and river rafting, Kluane Country is a popular Yukon adventure vacation destination.
