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.

    Binet House Museum

    The Binet House Museum is located in a restored 1920's heritage building at 304 Second Avenue. This house was built for Gene Binet, one of Mayo's Forefathers, and his bride Jewel. Gene Binet retired and left with his family for California in the fall of 1938 after he had sold his residence, hotel and store. The Binet House was occupied by several Mayo families over the years and in 1990, after it had been vacant for some time, the building was purchased by the Village of Mayo and turned into a Museum/Interpretive Centre.
