Explore nature's perfect playground

The Yukon is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. The midnight sun bathes everything in a golden glow, the fresh, clean air rejuvenates, and the land beckons for adventure.


This landscape was made for hiking. Imagine reaching the summit of an unnamed mountain, or retracing a historic trading route, or watching wildlife from a sunny ridge. Trekkers from around the world come to explore the Yukon wilderness. Some seek iconic trails like the Chilkoot or the Cottonwood, some explore routes along river corridors and roadsides, and some find hiking solitude on the hundreds of trails and routes that criss cross the territory.

Mountain Biking

Biking in the Yukon is single-track heaven, and no wonder. It's become a not-so-secret mountain biking hotspot with all the ingredients for fantastic rides. Cross a wildflower-strewn alpine meadow, careen down a mountain path, and ride high along an aspen ridge – all in a morning. Combine it with great guides and camaraderie, and you've got yourself world-class wilderness biking a stone's throw from the city.

Horseback Riding

Discovering Yukon's pristine wilderness on horseback recalls the pioneering spirit of a bygone era. Yukon adventure companies offer guided day and multi-day horseback riding trips all across the territory, and many hunting outfitters work with horses.

Round of golf at midnight, anyone? Yukon golfing is great any time of day, but it's a thrill to tee off late on a warm summer's eve. From first-class fairways to a rustic course at the edge of the wilderness, Yukon greens will draw you back for more.

    Chilkoot Trail National Historic Site

    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.
