Your Yukon Experience Itinerary:

  • Day 01 - Arrive Whitehorse

    Arrive at Whitehorse Airport, meet and greet provided by Tourism Yukon representatives. Pick-up rental vehicle and depart to Northern Lights Resort (20 minute drive). Check-in and overnight.

  • Day 02 Whitehorse Dawson City

    Depart Northbound on the Klondike Highway through the vast Yukon interior. Your route today roughly follows the Yukon River and passes through several road side lodges and villages with wild-sounding frontier names: Braeburn Lodge, Carmacks, Pelly Crossing, Stewart Crossing and Moose Creek Lodge. Be sure to call in the picturesque viewpoint overlooking the stunning Five Finger Rapids and the Tintina Trench. Your last part of the route today follows the famous Klondike River through the rich goldfields that drew 50,000 people to Dawson City in 1898 and kick-started the Klondike Goldrush, still considered the greatest in world history. Kick up your heels tonight and rub shoulders with miners and dance hall girls at Diamond Tooth Gerties Casino, Canada’s oldest! Overnight Klondike Kate’s Cabins.

  • Day 03 Dawson City

    With its un-paved streets, wooden boardwalks, colourful false-fronted buildings and rustic log cabins, Dawson appears straight out of an Old West movie. Now a national historic site with residents considering a potential UNESCO World Heritage Site bid, many of Dawson’s original buildings have been protected and lovingly restored. Visit the Palace Grand Theatre, Commissioner’s Residence or the SS Keno. Grab a pint in a former brothel. Travel out to the gold creeks to the site of the original strike and along the way pan for gold yourself. If wilderness exploration is more your speed, travel to Tombstone Park on the Dempster Highway; Canada’s only road to cross the Arctic Circle. Overnight Klondike Kate’s Cabins.

  • Day 04 Dawson City Beaver Creek

    Today’s drive will be memorable as you first cross the Yukon River by ferry and ascend the well-named Top of the World highway and travel westbound. Breath-taking doesn’t describe the vastness or the beauty. Wildlife sightings such as grizzly bears, moose and caribou are common along this remote route. The road crosses briefly into Alaska and takes you through former settlements with wild-sounding names like Boundary, Action Jackson’s and Jack Wade Camp before you arrive at the famous Alaska Highway. There you’ll return to the Yukon and clear customs at Beaver Creek; Canada’s most westerly community. Overnight: Buckshot Betty’s Cabins.

  • Day 05 Beaver Creek Kluane National Park (Haines Junction)

    Today you will continue eastbound on the Alaska Highway to Kluane National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The park is part of the largest internationally protected area in the world and is home to the largest non-polar icefield in the world. As you travel eastward, you’ll cross several large, braided glacial rivers that provide glimpses into this ice-covered landscape. Be sure to stop in at the Sheep Mountain Visitors Centre for glimpses of the all-white Dalls sheep that reside on the grassy slopes in the area. On arrival in Haines Junction, check in at the airport for your afternoon glacier flightseeing tour over the national park. The views over the St. Elias Icefield and the Elias Range are stunning.
