Visit Whitehorse

Introduction

Whitehorse became the capital of The Yukon during the Klondike Gold Rush of 1898, where miners lived to remain close to vibrant Dawson City. Now Whitehorse travel combines its history with the landscape and wildlife found along the Yukon River.

Heritage

Use the distinctive Log Cabin Skyscraper as a base to start your tour of the National Historic Site of Whitehorse. Relive its past in museums as well as the ship S.S. Klondike that was used to transport supplies to Dawson City. A Heritage Walking Tour takes you past MacBride Museum, which celebrates the gold rush featured in Robert Service's poetry. And the Old Log Church Museum displays history of First Nations and Inuit tribes.

Landscape and Wildlife

Spot salmon in the Yukon River and try your hand at trout fishing at Lake Laberage. For views over Whitehorse climb Grey Mountain or check out the stunning views and rushing current at Miles Canyon. You can also venture through the trails linked by the Robert Lowe Suspension Bridge. For a chance to spot the protected indigenous species that live to the north, visit Yukon Wildlife Preserve.

At the right time of year you can catch a glimpse of The Northern Lights, which will complete your tour.
