It is easy to see why Whitehorse carries the title of ‘Wilderness City.’ With the mighty Yukon River flowing through, it boasts of hundreds of miles of nature trails as well as shimmering lakes, all framed by the snow-clad peaks on the horizon. Continue your outdoor recreation to the Whitehorse dam where the Whitehorse Rapids Fishway figures as the longest wooden fish ladder in the world. The nearby Millenium Trail takes you further back in time with S.S. Klondike, the last sternwheeler to operate on the Yukon River and now a designated National Historic Site. After checking out the heritage White Pass and Yukon Route train station, make you way to the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre or get a feel of the Klondike Gold Rush with a history tour. Late afternoons are the perfect time to stroll along the picturesque waterfront and once the sun sets, head downtown where all the nighttime action unfolds. Browse public art, take in a live performance and later settle down to some inspired cuisine at any of its charming restaurants and cafes.
