What is there to see in Whitehorse or Dawson?

Jump to last reply

A friend wants to go to Whitehorse and Dawson to see the Yukon. What is there to see once you get to such a remote place in Canada?

    The Yukon really does have a great deal to offer during the summer months anyways. Top of the list of course is Dawson City home of the Klondike Gold Rush. It's a wonderful tourist place with restored 1890's buildings, saloons and Canada's oldest Gambling Hall, (Diamond Tooth Gertie's).

    Whitehorse is a 'big' city for the North anyhow with over 20,000 people, (2/3 of the total Yukon population), but it doesn't have nearly the tourist appeal of Dawson City.

    For outdoors types Yukon is wonderful especially for canoing and fishing. In June and July there is over 20 hours of daylight and the vistas are magnificent and largely untouched.

    The Highways are fairly good and paved between the major centres but for a real adventure you can take the Dempster Highway, (virtually all gravel), from Dawson City to Canada's Arctic Metropolis - Inuvik NWT, which is well north of the Arctic Circle. No need to worry about nightime driving there because there isn't any.

    All in all the Yukon is not a place where many people can say 'been there, done that' and it's not for everybody but if what I've just said appeals to your friend, then tell him or her to go for it!
