Best Attractions in Yukon

Spread the love

There are numerous attractions in Yukon that would have you dreaming about coming back just to visit them again. There’s no use delaying a good thing, so let’s get right into it.

  1. Yukon Wildlife Preserve. If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about boreal and arctic animals, this wildlife preserve is the best way to do it. There are more than a dozen species cared for on the reserve; some are permanent residents, and others are only there to recover enough to get back out to the wild.
  2. Miles Canyon. This canyon is an incredible place for mountain biking, hiking, and other outdoor activities. It’s got an interesting history, and a 50 ft high bridge that allows only the bravest individuals a view they’ll never forget.
  3. MacBride Museum and Dawson City Museum. Both museums provide a detailed history of the area, predominantly in the gold rush days. You can experience what it’s like to pan for gold at the MacBride Museum, and then head over to the Dawson City museum to travel through time and learn about the people that used to occupy the lands.
  4. S. Klondike. The S.S. Klondike was the largest riverboat sailing in the Yukon in the 20th century. It has been restored and is available for guided or self-guided tours. If you want to find out how the early populations lived, there is no better way to do it than visiting the largest steam ship that sailed those waters.
  5. Emerald Lake. Emerald lake is perhaps the least-touristy destination on our list, as it has no information, and no activities associated with it. However, it is still one of the most photographed places in the Yukon. If you’re wanting a memorable token from your trip, a photo of this gorgeous blue lake and mountain range will be unbeatable.
  6. Sign Post Forest. While every region in every country can offer stunning views and tourist attractions, there aren’t many that can offer you a sign post forest. 77,000 signs from every country in the world adorn the sign post forest, and it’s an attraction you won’t want to miss.
