Top Five Reasons Visitors Remember Yukon
1. The Adventure
One of the best reasons to visit Yukon is to take advantage of the outdoor adventure programs - and there's a lot of it to do! From hiking, to river tours, flightseeing, dog sledding, canoeing, mountain biking, fishing...the list goes on and on. Yukoners take adventure seriously during the winter or summer.
2. The Environment
In a big land, the size of California with a small town population of 33,000 people, visitors have room to be themselves. Pristine waters and air will rejuvenate the soul, and witnessing wildlife in an endless natural habitat will restore your connection with the natural world.
3. The History
The Klondike Gold Rush defined Canada in the later 1800's. Today visitors can experience a hike on the Chilkoot Trail, ride a the rails of the historic White Pass and Yukon Route, board a turn of the last century paddle wheel or stroll the streets of Dawson City or Carcross.
4. The Culture
Visitors will be able to learn and experience first-hand at festivals, events and tours about the First Peoples of Yukon and their strong link to the land and wildlife.
5. The Aurora
A National Geographic reader survey listed watching the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) as the most natural spiritual attraction to experience in North America. While as common as a sunset for northerners, a spectacular display can pierce city lights and strike everyone with awe.
