The Southern Lakes area is gaining recognition worldwide as a hotspot for
outdoor adventure sports, wildlife viewing, and authentic Yukon hospitality.
This region of interconnected lakes and rivers that form the headwaters of the
mighty Yukon River is also home to diverse landscapes—from desert dunes to
rolling mountains. The legendary river holds countless stories, from the Southern
Tutchone and Tagish-speaking first peoples of the region, to the stampeders on
their way to the Klondike goldfields, to the adventure-seekers of today.
