The Yukon is a sparsely populated and stunningly unique geographical location ideal for the travel enthusiast. In winter, you can participate in a variety of unique activities such as ice finishing, dog sledding and snowshoeing , while in summer, explore the Yukon River, the Gold Rush town of Dawson City or drive the iconic Dempster Highway all the way north to the Arctic Ocean, some of it in the light of the midnight sun. Being located this far north has benefits - the extended daylight hours are opportune to maximize your experience. Take a walk through Dawson City and enjoy the local food and drink from an outdoor terrace. Between trips to the Kluane National Park icefields and swimming and fishing the crystal-like rivers and lakes, there are hiking trails that are seemingly endless.
The remote and unequivocally beautiful topography is said to have been populated by the indigenous peoples for over 12,000 years. Much of the land is still kept by the Indigenous Yukon peoples, of which there are many artists of diverse disciplines, such as beading, weaving, sewing, sculpting, dancing, filmmaking and poetry. Visitors are welcome to immerse themselves in the rich and celebrated histories depicted in such works by visiting local art galleries and cultural centres all over the Yukon. Of particular note is the Kwanlin Dun Indigenous Cultural Centre in Whitehorse.
