There are many ways to get to the Yukon, but flying is definitely the easiest. You can catch daily, direct flights with Air North
, Yukon’s Airline, from Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa, Kelowna, Victoria and Yellowknife. Or, if you’re coming from further abroad, there are a variety of convenient flights arriving in the Yukon via other major airlines such as Air Canada
. After you’ve fastened your seatbelt, it’s time to share a few stories with your neighbour and one of Air North’s famous warm cookies.
There are five main ways to drive into the Yukon—three from the west in Alaska and two from down south in British Columbia. Each highway in has its own unique sites to see but don’t be fooled, the real beauty is waiting for you in the Yukon, with close to 5,000kms of well maintained roads eagerly waiting for your wheels to cross over.
Meet the crew, say hello to the captain and familiarize yourself with the best viewing platform because you’re about to witness something spectacular. Look to your port side to see glistening glaciers, your starboard side to view whales breaching and rush to the bow to yell “Land ahoy” when you spot your final destination in Skagway, Alaska. Now grab your bags and choose from car, bus or train to get you the rest of the way there.
