Here’s some Yukon goodness to get you in the spirit:
Highway to heaven
With almost 5000 kilometres of roads to explore, Yukon’s fly/drive itineraries are among the best in the world, offering road trip lovers easy driving, breathtaking vistas and inviting detours.
Those who like to take the road less travelled can do so on the Klondike to Kluane Loop, which crosses into Alaska and immerses explorers in the Gold Rush history of Dawson City (complete with can-can dancers and gold panning!) as well as dreamy scenes and rich First Nations cultural experiences.
A perfect paddle
Travellers definitely won’t be up the creek without a paddle in the Yukon.
The Yukon River runs right through the capital city of Whitehorse, and many other communities sit along rivers or close to lakes.
Choose to follow the gold seekers’ route and drift past centuries-old sites of First Nation meeting places. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife like golden eagles, osprey, moose, and even grizzlies.
Off the beaten track
There’s no such thing as ‘going down the wrong path’ in Canada’s north-western Yukon Territory.
There’s a trail for every ability and fitness level, where even the shortest, easiest hikes reward you with sweeping vistas of expansive rivers, glaciers, and pristine alpine wilderness.
The five-kilometre paved Whitehorse Millennium Trail is a good place to start; following the path of the mighty Yukon River from the Robert Campbell Bridge.
For something a little harder, the Auriol Trail in Kluane National Park is a moderate loop that takes in pristine boreal forest, sub-alpine terrain, epic mountain slopes and boasts wildlife galore.
Where else can you ski through a nature reserve, dog-mush across a glistening lake, and witness the dancing northern lights all in one day?
The dark winter sky, free from light pollution, is the perfect backdrop for one of the most amazing natural phenomena in existence – the Aurora Borealis.
Get some serious VIP camping vibes under the shelter of a prospector-style wall tent, keeping warm by the wood-fired barrel stove with Northern Tales Travel Service, or stay at a cosy wilderness lodge, such as the Northern Lights Resort and Spa, and take in nature’s finest show from the glass-fronted chalet, or outdoor hot tub.
For the ultimate winter wonderland adventure, check out Sky High Wilderness Lodge for a full or half-day dog mushing adventure, where you’ll be assigned your own team of friendly huskies. Best day ever? We think so!
Sounds great, I want in!
Okay, so now it’s time to sign up, skill up and hopefully WIN $100 shiny cash dollars in the form of a delightful little gift card.
Make sure you pay close attention to the webinar, because that, our lovely Australian and New Zealander travel advisor community, is how you’ll win! And, of course, how you will wow your customers with all things Yukon.
