2 1 Reviews | Add your review

When you visit Whitehorse, you can pick your passion. For those who want to get out and explore the vast wilderness, there’s no limit to the hiking, biking, paddling, and other outdoor activities. Visitors who would rather explore the captivating history can stay in town and visit one of the and museums or historic sites that honor the city’s frontier days and its place in gold rush history. 

Day One 
Once you've settled into your accommodations, it’s time to tie up your boots and get back outside. Spend your first day exploring the trail network that surrounds Whitehorse. Walk to historic Miles Canyon, and hike up Grey Mountain for panoramic views of the Yukon River valley. Close to downtown, take a tour of the historic S.S. Klondike sternwheeler. 

Day Two
A trip to Whitehorse isn’t complete without an adventure on the Yukon River. You can launch your vessel right downtown with guides waiting by to help you out and send you on your way. Pull off onto the riverbank to search for wildlife and have lunch on shore.

Once you’re back on dry land, watch the action at the fish ladder at the Whitehorse Rapids Fishway or visit the Old Log Church Museum in downtown Whitehorse. Built in 1900 by Rev. R.J. Bowen, it was declared the first territorial historic site in the Yukon, and hosts exhibits of early exploration, the gold rush, and the pioneering religious denominations in the Yukon. 

Day Three
The Yukon is known for its incredible and diverse wildlife and what better way to see it than a trip to the Yukon Wildlife Preserve. Sitting on 750 acres of wilderness, the preserve features ten species of animals in a natural setting. The viewing platforms allow for great access and sight lines to the animals without disturbing them.

Afterwards, visit the MacBride Museum and learn about the birth of Whitehorse and the pioneers who established the Yukon. Meet a grizzly face to face in the Natural World Gallery, learn history in the Gold to Government Gallery and pay a visit to Sam McGee’s cabin. You can even try your hand at gold panning!
