Wilderness Parks

Wilderness Parks

Get back to nature in the Yukon wild

Yukon is one of the world’s last pristine places, and we’re fortunate that much of it is protected in wilderness parks.

Iconic wilderness landscapes

Yukoners aren’t the name-dropping kind, unless we’re talking about our cherished wild places. Heard of Tombstone, Kluane or the Chilkoot? Paddled the Alsek, the Snake or the Firth? Our national and territorial parks are world-renowned for signature backcountry hikes and river journeys, as well as day trips, scenic flights and cultural experiences.

Unmatched adventure and wildlife

Imagine floating past calving glaciers, flying over the world’s largest non-polar icefields or hiking through towering peaks. Or taking a stroll on a forest trail, or spotting northern birds and wildlife from a canoe. Our parks are home to a diverse array of northern wildlife, from millions of migratory birds to grizzly bears to the Porcupine caribou herd.

Dredge No. 4 National Historic Site

Banner Photos: 

Not long after gold was discovered in large quantities in the Klondike, dredges were brought into the Yukon—the first dredge was built in the fall of 1899. One of the two dozen dredges that worked this area, Dredge No. 4 was designed by the Marion Steam Shovel Company. The dredge rests on Claim No. 17 below Discovery on Bonanza Creek, near the spot where it ceased operations in 1960. Dredge No. 4 is the largest wooden hull, bucket-line dredge in North America and is a significant example of corporate
industrial mining in Canada.

Guided tours of Dredge No. 4 National Historic Site are provided by
licensed private operators. You can also learn about the dredge using the site guide, the Explora app, or the Xplorer kid's booklet. See if you can find the three Geocaches in the Klondike Goldfields. For more information, call 867-993-7200, www.parkscanada.gc.ca/klondike. Bonjour!

Goldbottom Tours

Visit three generations of the Millar family at their working placer goldmine. Your friendly guide will take you right onto the mine site to learn how gold is deposited by nature and extracted by man.

Tour the original Goldbottom Roadhouse and discover what other treasures frozen in time are sometimes uncovered. Gain insights into the day-to-day life of a modern miner and hear of fortunes made and failures endured. Learn how raw gold is concentrated, cleaned and worked with, and then experience the thrill of panning for your own gold from the very same pay dirt that is being sluiced.

The miners' main camp is located at the picturesque convergence of Hunker and Goldbottom Creeks, 25 kilometers from Dawson City. Tours depart twice daily, May to September, from Front Street, and can be customized for special groups upon request.

Discovery Claim National Historic Site

Banner Photos: 

Discovery Claim National Historic Site is where gold was discovered in 1896, triggering the Klondike Goldrush. It is a legally defined mining claim measuring 500 by 2000 feet located on Bonanza Creek, a tributary of the Klondike River near Dawson City, Yukon. The site is in a deep valley which has been mined heavily since the discovery, first by hand then with mechanized equipment.

The discovery story’s details vary, but it is generally held that Keish / Skookum Jim Mason, of the Tagish First Nation, discovered the gold. Soon after the discovery, every creek and hillside in the Klondike was being worked.

Explore the 1.5-km/1-mile interpretive trail with the site guide, the
Explora app, or the Xplorer kid's booklet. See if you can find the
Geocache. Bonjour! For more information, call 867-993-7200,

S.S. Keno National Historic Site

Banner Photos: 

The S.S. Keno was built in 1922 and has a shallow two-foot draft and a narrow beam. These features allowed the ship to navigate through shallow water and sections with ever-changing sandbars and gave it the ability to make turns around tight, narrow curves. The stern-mounted paddlewheel permitted the sternwheeler to land anywhere along riverbanks and it assisted in getting off sandbars. The paddle wheel was protected from snags and sweepers by the hull. The S.S. Keno worked mainly on the Stewart River hauling silver-lead concentrate from Mayo to Stewart City. It was also used for the early and late season trips to Dawson City. The S.S. Keno National Historic Site is open from the May long weekend till the September long weekend.

These features allowed the ship to navigate through shallow water and sections with ever-changing sandbars and gave it the ability to make turns around tight, narrow curves. The stern-mounted paddlewheel permitted the sternwheeler to land anywhere along riverbanks and it assisted in getting off sandbars. The paddle wheel was protected from snags and sweepers by the hull. The S.S. Keno worked mainly on the Stewart River hauling silver-lead concentrate from Mayo to Stewart City. It was also used for the early and late season trips to Dawson City. The S.S. Keno National Historic Site is open from the May long weekend till the September long weekend.

S.S. Klondike National Historic Site

Banner Photos: 

The British Yukon Navigation (BYN) Company sternwheeler fleet plied the upper Yukon River between Whitehorse and Dawson City in the early twentieth century. The S.S. Klondike was the largest sternwheeler in the fleet. Built in 1929, the ship sank in 1936, was rebuilt and launched as the S.S. Klondike II in spring 1937.

Located on the banks of the Yukon River in Whitehorse, Yukon, and restored to its original 1937-40 appearance, the S.S. Klondike pays tribute to an era of riverboat transportation and the inland water transportation system that linked the Yukon to the outside world before the advent of roads. Explore the boat using the self-guided tour brochure, the Explora app, or the Xplorer kid's booklet. See if you can find the Geocache. Open from the May long weekend till the September long weekend. Bonjour! For more information, call 867-667-3910 / 1-800-661-0486, www.parkscanada.gc.ca/ssklondike.

Dredge No. 4 National Historic Site

Banner Photos: 

Not long after gold was discovered in large quantities in the Klondike, dredges were brought into the Yukon—the first dredge was built in the fall of 1899. One of the two dozen dredges that worked this area, Dredge No. 4 was designed by the Marion Steam Shovel Company. The dredge rests on Claim No. 17 below Discovery on Bonanza Creek, near the spot where it ceased operations in 1960. Dredge No. 4 is the largest wooden hull, bucket-line dredge in North America and is a significant example of corporate
industrial mining in Canada.

Guided tours of Dredge No. 4 National Historic Site are provided by
licensed private operators. You can also learn about the dredge using the site guide, the Explora app, or the Xplorer kid's booklet. See if you can find the three Geocaches in the Klondike Goldfields. For more information, call 867-993-7200, www.parkscanada.gc.ca/klondike. Bonjour!

Discovery Claim National Historic Site

Banner Photos: 

Discovery Claim National Historic Site is where gold was discovered in 1896, triggering the Klondike Goldrush. It is a legally defined mining claim measuring 500 by 2000 feet located on Bonanza Creek, a tributary of the Klondike River near Dawson City, Yukon. The site is in a deep valley which has been mined heavily since the discovery, first by hand then with mechanized equipment.

The discovery story’s details vary, but it is generally held that Keish / Skookum Jim Mason, of the Tagish First Nation, discovered the gold. Soon after the discovery, every creek and hillside in the Klondike was being worked.

Explore the 1.5-km/1-mile interpretive trail with the site guide, the
Explora app, or the Xplorer kid's booklet. See if you can find the
Geocache. Bonjour! For more information, call 867-993-7200,

Chilkoot Trail National Historic Site

Banner Photos: 

The legendary 53-km/33-mile Chilkoot Trail protects the historic gateway to the Yukon once trod by Tlingit First Nation traders and Klondike Goldrush stampeders. The Chilkoot Trail is a component of the Klondike Gold Rush International Historical Park.

The Chilkoot Trail starts at tidewater in Dyea, Alaska, and ends on the shores of Bennett Lake, the Southern Lakes headwaters of the mighty Yukon River. Amidst this rugged northern wilderness an overlay of artifacts and heritage landscape features tell of the story of the Klondike Goldrush.
Hiking permits are required and reservations are recommended. You don’t have to hike the entire trail to relive the experience: you can take the White Pass & Yukon Route train from Skagway, Alaska, or Carcross, Yukon, to the Bennett townsite trailhead for a daytrip or camp overnight.
