Planning Your Trip
The Yukon is located in northwestern
Canada, next to Alaska. To get here
drive the Alaska Highway or Stewart-
Cassiar Highway from British Columbia,
take a ferry or cruise ship up the British
Columbia/Alaska coastline, or fly direct
on jet service to Whitehorse.
Scheduled flights to the Yukon depart
Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton, as
well as Alaska, the Northwest Territories
and Frankfurt, Germany. Many visitors
find an appealing way to experience the
Yukon is to fly in and arrange travel
from Whitehorse, with car and RV rentals

start with a visit to one of 14 Yukon and
Community Visitor Information Centres
for current information and bulletins.
