    Always a pleasure to visit the Yukon Wildlife Preserve. Just book a guided bus tour with Yukon Home And Tour, relax and just show up on the time and date in downtown Whitehorse.

    We visited in December so the road was closed. It was a 3 mile round trip from where we parked to the bridge. Beautiful canyon , with awesome water relections. Good area to hike wherever you want.

    This museum is beautifully organized and curated, and exceeded expectations in every way. I especially enjoyed all of the gold rush information and exhibits, as well as the animals of Yukon exhibit. The Indigenous information was also beautifully presented with hundreds of interesting photos and artifacts. We intended to spend an hour, and spent almost 3.

    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.

    Great visit, must do in Whitehorse as you discover the region through the boat's history. Guylaine was very dynamic and very knowledgeable, appreciated and learned lots during the guided visit!

    The staff was very nice and knowledgeable. The museum is bigger than you think. The skull display is amazing. Lots of interactive didplays and a small children area

    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.

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Wow! This facility is amazing. We used the aquatic center. The pool water was perfect. Hot tub, steam room and sauna was a real treat. The view from the pool area was so beautiful. Went upstairs to check out the walking track. A day pass was around 7 dollars which is very reasonable. Very clean facility.

    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 history
