With a history that’s almost tangible and landscapes to rival anywhere in the Rockies, the Yukon is like nowhere else in Canada. Raging rivers flow between mountains that are locked in snow for much of the year. Glaciers and ice fields continue to shape the landscape. And, dense forests provide habitat for grizzly bears, moose and wolverines. It’s an untamed region, but our specialists will use their first-hand experiences to help plan your trip to the Yukon.

Kluane National Park, YukonKluane National Park is home to Canada’s highest peak, Mount Logan. You can follow hiking trails that ribbon through its green valleys, or picnic by the aquamarine waters of Kluane Lake. From August until April, you have a chance of seeing the Northern Lights strobing across the night sky — we can arrange for you to visit the best places for seeing this natural phenomenon.

As well as the Yukon’s wilderness, our specialists have explored its towns, many of which sprang up during the late 19th-century Klondike Gold Rush. Dawson City has barely changed since then — wooden boardwalks and dirt roads link false-fronted houses, you can still pan for gold at nearby Bonanza Creek, and in old saloons you might hear locals sharing unlikely tales.
