Known as Canada’s True North, the Yukon Territory offers RVers a spectacular experience. Rugged, untamed and vast, the Yukon has a wild, unspoiled charm. Bountiful wildlife, nature and recreational opportunities make RVing in the Yukon the experience of a lifetime.
Whitehorse and Dawson City are the two main city centres and bases for wilderness exploration trips. Gone, of course, are the teeming rows of saloons and brothels and gambling halls (except as historic recreations) but the wild spirit remains.
The Yukon Government's 41 clean and scenic roadside campgrounds offer tent and pull-through sites with picnic tables, campfire pits, firewood and picnic shelters, outhouses and hand pumped cold water. Many roadside campgrounds have prime access to local fishing spots and walking trails. The government also operates several backcountry campgrounds in Tombstone Park and on the Thirty-Mile section of the Yukon River.
June through August is prime RV trip time, but the spring and fall shoulder seasons offer excellent conditions for snow sports and autumn foliage. And as chilly as the winter months can be, they offer the best opportunity for catching the brilliant Northern Lights.
- The Yukon Territory is one of the best places in the world for wilderness adventures. Fishing, hiking, biking, canoeing, rafting, wildlife viewing and enjoying pure nature are a way of life here.
- The Yukon’s Kluane National Park boasts spectacular scenery and many opportunities to try your hand at heli-hiking or glacier trekking.
For all of those who love going north (I mean far north) - The Dempster Highway is for you! The Dempster Highway is Canada's only all weather road into the Arctic Circle. If you are so inclined, you can in winter when the road is extended 190km north and uses an ice road to get to Tuktoyaktuk.
Its easy to see why so many Canadian list Kluane Lake as one of their favourite driving destinations in the Yukon. Pronounced "kloo-wah-nee" meaning "place of many fish", it is an anglers dream for catching for lake trout, arctic grayling, rainbow trout, and kokanee. Kluane lake is part of a 22016 square km national park system in Canada.
