Whitehorse

Welcome to Whitehorse, Canada’s Wilderness City and the Yukon’s capital.

Whitehorse is home to some of the most spectacular scenery in Canada; nestled on the banks of the famous Yukon River surrounded by mountains and pristine lakes.

Gorgeous scenery and a vibrant city lifestyle, it’s no small wonder over 25,000 people enjoy living here year round. Few cities in the world offer such rich access to pristine wilderness, yet still provide all the amenities of a modern metropolis. Whitehorse is the Yukon’s most cosmopolitan community, but its easy access to trails, rivers, lakes and mountains are what will make your trip memorable.

From gold panning to canoeing, museum-perusing to flightseeing, the attractions in the Yukon can keep you entertained for weeks.

White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad Take an unforgettable journey aboard The Scenic Railway of the World! Experience a variety of fully narrated excursions that depart from Whitehorse, YT, Carcross, YT, and Skagway, Alaska. White Pass & Yukon Route makes a great day trip filled with a breathtaking panorama of mountains, lakes, waterfalls, tunnels, trestles and historic sites.

Wilderness Fishing Canada’s Yukon Territory is the land of the midnight sun where there is plenty of daylight to fish to your hearts content. When is the last time you heard of a place where there are more moose, loons, eagles, bears, and otters than people?

Road touring/self-drives on the Highways of the North The highways of the north will take you through stunning scenery and the historic routes of traders, travelers, prospectors, and early transportation workers. While driving on northern highways, you’ll witness vast expanses of wilderness, pullouts with breathtaking vistas, and unique communities with colourful inhabitants. Driving in the north is always an adventure. Keep in mind that most northern highways are out of cell phone range, and prepare yourself for long distances in between services and unpredictable weather.

Northern Lights Canada’s Yukon is one of the best places to view this natural phenomenon which is on display every winter in the high latitude regions of our planet. Come and experience the crisp night air, the squeak of your footsteps on the hard packed snow and the magical ambience of Yukon winter.

Shopping Whitehorse has all the amenities of a big city, including shopping centres and districts throughout town for groceries, supplies, and souvenirs. Downtown's main street offers locally made arts, crafts and jewelry stores.

Dining With a population of over 25,000 people; Whitehorse offers quite a few different cuisines from around the world – from Mexican to Italian and some locally famous bistros and bakeries, there is no shortage of choices to choose to from.

We celebrate Yukon’s unique culture and special places all year long, and visitors are welcomed into the fold. Join our lively events and festivals to learn about local traditions, witness stellar competition, or just dance the night away. From music festivals to extreme races to cultural showcases, there’s always something fun going on.

At this latitude winter days are short and summer days have 20 hours of daylight. Whitehorse experiences an annual temperature average with daily highs of 20.5 °C (68.9 °F) in July and average daily lows of −22 °C (−7.6 °F) in January.
