We offer something for every client, whether it’s marveling at the Northern Lights, experiencing the Midnight Sun, or hitting the road on an iconic drive. Visitors can also explore our Klondike Gold Rush history, enjoy our rich heritage and culture, or disconnect from the world for a while in our stunning wilderness.
Heritage and Culture
Yukoners celebrate a rich history and a dynamic arts culture, and our vast northern landscapes ﬁgure prominently in storytelling and art. The culture of the Yukon’s First Nations people evolved over millennia into the rich tapestry of dialects, arts, crafts, cuisines and practices that we enjoy today. From festivals to galleries to dozens of museums, historic sites, and interpretive and cultural centres, the Yukon’s stories are brought to life for visitors in many different ways.
Wilderness and Wildlife
From broad uninhabited valleys to crystal-clear rivers and endless mountain peaks, more than 80 percent of the Yukon landmass is wilderness. Its home to more than 250,000 caribou, 70,000 moose, 22,000 mountain sheep, 6,000 grizzly bears and 284 species of birds … and just over 37,000 humans. If you have clients with a passion for animals, they’ll find them here in one of the world’s last frontiers.
With scenic drives into all corners of the Yukon, this is a road-touring paradise for cars, RVs or motorcycles. The Yukon has a network of highways that rank among the world’s premier driving adventures. We also have an exhilarating combination of postcard scenery, heritage sites and cultural attractions. Just beyond the dashboard are inviting towns, campgrounds and countless adventures. This is a land of friendly characters and expanses of untouched wilderness.
