Pelly Crossing
The village of Pelly Crossing lies on the Pelly River

Gateway to Fort Selkirk and the Yukon River

Home of Selkirk First Nation, Pelly Crossing is a convenient midway stopping point on the journey between Dawson City and Whitehorse. A lookout overlooking the village offers sweeping views of the Pelly River, the bridge and the aspen and sage-covered ridges of the Yukon Plateau.

Take the time for a memorable journey by boat from Minto down the Yukon River to visit the original buildings at Fort Selkirk, an important historic and cultural site for the Northern Tutchone people. A replica of Big Jonathan House houses cultural displays and artifacts in Pelly Crossing with local businesses offering basic visitor services.
