Travelling to the North is a unique experience. Here are some tips for getting the best out of your time in the Yukon.

Plan your wardrobe

Summer temperatures can be blistering, but there have been years where July was downright chilly. Likewise, our winters might be warmer than you expect. Bring a variety of clothes.

Watch the weather

The Yukon sky is very big and open to change. Rain, sun, and snow on one summer day? It's not typical, but it does happen from time to time.

Plan ahead

There's a lot to do in the Yukon, from canoeing to cappuccinos in a cozy café. Build an itinerary to make sure you can get as much in as possible.

Read up on us

The Yukon has a long, rich history and a wide variety of climate zones. The more you know about this area, the more you'll enjoy your trip.

Find someone to help out

Yukoners are generally very helpful, but identifying a guide for your travels will make your visit even better.

Play, but by our rules

The laws of the Yukon and Canada might be different from where you're coming from.

Get that paperwork out of the way

You may need special documents to enter Canada from your home country. Since you may want to take advantage of our proximity to Alaska, make sure that you have the necessary paperwork to enter the United States.

Watch the road

The Alaska Highway is long, and passes through some of the world's most amazing terrain. If you're not able to stay alert, pull over and take a break.

Watch your money

The Yukon is in Canada, so be sure to carry some local currency. Credit and banks cards are accepted by most establishments, but some of our more out-of-the-way places are cash-only.

Walk softly

The Yukon is a treasure because of our vast, unspoiled environment. When travelling our roads, rivers, forests, and mountains, please be sure to leave them as you found them for the next visitor to enjoy.

Take advantage of us

The Yukon offers a vast array of services for visitors from all over the world and all walks of life.

Prepare to relax

It's not the big city up here. Put away that mobile phone and slow down to Yukon Time.
