Yukon Beringia Interpretive Centre

The Klondike Gold Rush brought many a miner and fortune-seeker to the Yukon. Not long after the first miners arrived, stories of giant beasts unearthed during the quest for gold began to spread. To this day, with the help of local miners and First Nations, more treasures of the Yukon’s distant past are being recovered every year. These remains and artifacts tell a story of a world quite unlike the Yukon you see today.

Here at the Centre, we provide our visitors with a look back into the amazing and often bizarre world of ice age Yukon. You’ll learn about ice ages, extinct animals, and First Nations legends—all contributing to a better understanding of the long lost sub-continent of Beringia.

Murals and dioramas depict Beringia’s landscapes, floras and faunas. The Centre also features films, original works of art, and exhibits of discovered remains from throughout the Yukon.

The Centre is located in Whitehorse, Yukon.

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.
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. See if you can find the Geocache at Lindeman. Bonjour! For more information, call 867-667-3910 / 1-800-661-0486, www.parkscanada.gc.ca/chilkoot.

Yukon Artists At Work

This artist-run co-operative gallery has brought some of the best Yukon art to the world since it was founded ten years ago. All-original and all-Yukon, Yukon Artists at Work’s goal is to provide a venue for emerging and established artists. Artists get the chance to develop in a supportive community, and to grow their business skills to enter markets outside of the territory. From an original dozen members, YA@W now features the work of about 35 painters, potters, sculptors, photographers and fibre artists (and many other disciplines as well). All artists are juried into the co-op, ensuring the best Yukon art is represented. As part of the co-op, member artists take turns running the gallery... so you’ll always have a chance to meet a Yukon artist ‘in the flesh’ when you visit! The gallery is located just off Two-Mile Hill, easily accessible by car, public transit, or on foot.
