Enjoy Yukon’s most charming cities, the capital of the Yukon, Whitehorse and a small town in the North with a huge personality - Dawson city, unlike any place on earth. On our road trip to Dawson City you will be accompanied by a fascinating landscape. Often described as a living museum, Dawson City’s boardwalk-lined streets contain many attractions and historical artifacts, back from the gold rush. Try your luck at Diamond Tooth Gerties, a unique casino with cabaret-style entertainment of the gold rush era and explore the history of all famous writers like Robert Service, Jack London and Pierre Berton. Are you ready to pan for gold in the rivers and creeks surrounding Dawson? We will bring you to an active gold mine outside of town. To continue your Yukon adventure we’ll go right into the heart of the Tombstone mountains, where you will be surrounded by an epic, colorful scenery and pristine wildlife.

Learn about the Yukon’s history at the MacBride Museum of the Yukon, experience pre-historic history at the Yukon Beringia Interpretative Centre and stop in at the unique Yukon Transportation Museum located nearby. And when you’ve seen all these top sites, Main Street is perfect for strolling and shopping with its shops galleries and café’s. One of the most sought-after Northern experiences, a Yukon vacation is only complete with viewing the Midnight Sun or the Aurora Borealis cascading across the Yukon night sky (depending on the season).

Whitehorse - Dawson City

Today we start our adventure in Whitehorse and travel on the North Klondike Highway towards the Northwest, the historic Dawson City.

Old post offices, roadhouses, small villages and great viewpoints along the Highway constantly bring back to mind the gold rush era 100 years ago. After a relaxed dinner we pick you up from your hotel for our evening program and visit Diamond Tooth Gerties Gambling Hall with poker game and Cancan-Dance-Girls. Overnight accommodation in Dawson City.

In the late afternoon we travel up the Midnight Dome Road for fantastic views of Dawson City and the Yukon River. After a true northern dinner you have the time to explore the city yourself by foot.

Dempster Highway / Tombstone Mountains

After getting up early we drive up the Dempster Highway which is 730 km long and is the only year-round road connection to the Arctic Sea. After a short visit at the Tombstone Visitor Center we are ready to start our hike at the foot of the Tombstone Mountains; this will lead us into the tundra of this mountain range, where every season has its unique attraction.

I am thinking of paddling the river with a canoe in August and September. I fell in love with Whitehorse.

Ayako Tatsumi

On Friday I went snow shoeing around Miles Canyon. It was very nice to see the Yukon river under the snow.

Dave Ellemberg

We had the most amazing trip ... . Absolutely well organized. Weather was on our side and Reinhard is such a skilled driver and his wildlife spotting skills are phenominal.

Naseera Koya

Every person we encountered with arctic adventures was absolutely amazing.

Meredith D

Aurora viewing was spectacular, there really aren't enough words to describe it. Guides are super friendly and tour groups are small, which is great.

Gabriela

Just awesome, everything was great, the guides are so well informed and always in a good mood.

Enrique Becerra

Thank you for taking good care of us on our Aurora viewing tour. Thanks to your advice, we were able to take nice photos!

Had a great time even when the weather was not the best

Tash & Craig H

Our primary purpose for this tour was to see Aurora. The activity of Aurora was strong at that time (end of August), ....

Alma B

I flew to Whitehorse only for 1 night in the hope to see the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). It was a risk as they don't come out every night, but it paid off. At approx 3am the lights came out and it was spectacular.

Leese D

I had spend very good time in Whitehorse to meet you and your staff.

Hitomi YUASA
