Life in Yukon
Life in Yukon
Yukon is the smallest and westernmost federal territory in Canada. It is most famously known for the beauty of its vast wilderness. 5 of the country’s tallest mountains, as well as the world’s largest ice field below the Arctic, can be found in Yukon. Yukon’s small city charm is balanced by its natural splendor and is essentially an explorer’s dream. If you’re looking for the best of both worlds, Yukon is the place for you!
Yukon is most famously known for Mount Logan, Canada’s highest mountain located in Kluane National Park and Reserve. It is located close to the Alaskan border and is one of the world’s largest protected wilderness areas, dominated by mountains and glaciers. The grandeur of the Yukon River should not be missed and is best explored by canoe. Other parks to explore include Tombstone Territorial Park with its wide valleys, steep ridges, glaciers and alpine lakes.
The Alaska and Klondike highways meet in Whitehorse, making it the transportation hub of Yukon. The territory is not only great for those looking for adventures in the great outdoors, but it also has a vibrant arts community. Dawson City is a small seductive city situated on the confluence of the Yukon and Klondike rivers, perfect for those who enjoy meandering off the beaten path.
