Yukon Territory

The Klondike

Wedged between Alaska and the Northwest Territories on each side, Yukon Territory is bounded by British Columbia, to the south and the Arctic Ocean to the north. The Yukon is one of the easiest places north of the arctic circle to access, however, it is not all that does not mean it is simple.

The only city in the territory, Whitehorse is in the south of the territory and can be accessed by roads but these roads deteriorate rapidly the further north they go. With only 20,000 residents, nearly everyone in the territory lives in Whitehorse. Despite the population size, the city limits cover 421 sq km making it the largest urban designated areas in Canada. The central downtown area of the city is very small but the residents are spread across this large area giving them plenty of space to live.

    Mention Dawson City, Yukon, and the first thought in many people’s minds will be the gold rush. The town no longer has fevered gold-seekers setting up camp like in the 1890s, but traces of the Klondike history still mingle with the new economy, with museums and historic buildings providing links to the past, while theatres, hiking trails, and much more provide a wide variety of activities for travellers.
