What travellers are saying
- This was an option offered at our Northern Lights Resort stay & it turned out to be a not to miss experience! The Preserve is filled with animals rescued from the Yukon wilds. We got up close to a lynx, mountain sheep & goats, a red fox & saw in the distance, caribou, musk oxen and the tip of a moose's antlers. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and regaled us with the habits & habitat of each species. She also told us the histories of how some of the animals arrived at the preserve. This experience is well worth your time when you are visiting Whitehorse.Written November 4, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This museum is beautifully organized and curated, and exceeded expectations in every way.

- The Emerald Lake represents the furthest travel into the Yukon for cruise ship passengers touring from Skagway. It is also one of the highlights of the tour. The vivid colour of the water is caused by marl, fine particle clays and silt, that reflects the green colour of the spectrum. We visited in May and were able to take photos of snow covered mountains in the background.Written June 15, 2023
- It was fortunate for us that we were able to board the Paddlewheeler as it was the Last Tour of the Last Day before this Historic vessel closed for extensive restoration. We thoroughly enjoyed the guided tour and history detailing its purpose, route and obstacles down the Yukon River to Dawson City and the fate of S S Klondike I.Written November 2, 2023
- This museum has a lot of interesting displays including a G sized model train if the White Pass railway in Whitehorse (which btw the real one should come all the way to Whitehorse again like it used to). The displays are in really good shape and cover all modes of transport. It also gives a sense of how transportation was used and adapted to the north country. We would go again if given the chance.Written September 4, 2023
- This is an amazing Interpretive Centre! We took the tour with Tracy and she was delightful to listen to. Full of knowledge and well presented, she gave an entertaining and knowledgeable presentation. Very well done and I could have listened to her for hours!
This is a must-see in my opinion.Written September 20, 2022
- I have been drinking craft brews more ever since I first tried the Yukon Brewing Co.’s at a chocolate tasting/pairing event.
They offer tours so if you are interested in the process be sure to call ahead. The fall tour schedule is different than the summer so be sure to know when it is happening if you are staying around Whitehorse for a while.
It is fantastic to come and see the location that brews it all.Written September 12, 2023
- I can't speak higher of the Yukon Suspension Bridge and their crew. The venue has the most spectacular views within hundreds of miles and the bartenders, chefs and staff are all so positive and incredibly kind and accommodating. I got married at this venue and it was the best choice we could have made. Victoria and Russel put all the small touches into making the day special. Plus the weather is always better in the Yukon!!Written August 29, 2023
- The longest wooden fish ladder is impressive, even though this time of the year there are no fish. Still worth a visit if you are close, certainly will be more interesting next month.Written June 25, 2023
- Always a great stop on my annual visit to Whitehorse. There is always an interesting mix of local artist creations and I don’t always purchase something but always enjoy taking in the creative energy.
Well done keeping this place available.Written April 15, 2023
- This is the second time we visit Whitehorse and North End Gallary is a mist visit place. The merchandise are unique by artist. We bought a few crafted jewellery from them this time. Must visit.Written March 25, 2023
- We stopped by for a quick visit. This is a large facility set up as a community center for locals. The main exhibit hall was closed for refurbishment, so not much to see. There was a class for hat making going on while we visited in one of the many rooms available. The artifacts shown in the main entrance and hallway were interesting.Written June 25, 2023
- If you'd like to taste the true flavor of Canada's Yukon, you definitely need to make a trip to Lake Laberge! Featured In Robert Service' s well-known poem 'The cremation of Sam McGee', the lake has a distinctively Northern look to it - especially when it's covered with ice! At night, the Northern lights flicker in the sky, and there's a crisp chill in the air as you listen to the sounds of ravens and wintering songbirds that stay through the cold season. Even with a few houses around the shore now, there's still a legendary flavor and history present in the landscape around the lake – Easy to get to from the airport in Whitehorse, and only 20 or 30 minutes by car northward. It's a great Canadian destination, with some incredible historyWritten October 8, 2019
