Day Trips

You can fit a lot into a Yukon day. Or maybe it's all the things you aren't doing that make a Yukon experience so memorable. The natural highs of a Yukon adventure aren't limited to those with time for a longer vacation. Depending on how long you're staying, choose an exhilarating Yukon day trip to round out your itinerary.

Perhaps you're here on business or attending a conference, or maybe you're just passing through. Our Yukon operators offer a year-round smorgasbord of day trips, from action-packed adventure outings to cultural experiences to a relaxing tour of local attractions. Many offer custom tours and half-day options.

Summer Sights

From a flightseeing tour at dawn to an evening round of golf under the midnight sun, our long summer days squeeze in more than you can imagine. In a day you can raft the Tatshenshini River or paddle the Yukon River. Tour the Klondike gold fields and take in a music festival. Spend a day being guided through art galleries and historic attractions before dining on flavourful northern dishes.

Winter Wonders

Meet a friendly team of Yukon huskies, try ice fishing, and spend your evening watching for the northern lights. Tour our museums and cultural attractions, and hang out with locals at a café. You'll love the pace of the Yukon in winter.

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.

Talk to us about extending your experience by staying in one of our clean and comfortable cabins.
