Take your RV to explore the spectacular wilderness of the North! Whitehorse, Yukon, is a small city where history and culture come alive. Home to some of the most stunning scenery in Canada and named by some the Wilderness City, Whitehorse nestles on the banks of the famous Yukon River surrounded by mountains and clear mountain lakes. Gorgeous scenery and a vibrant city lifestyle, it’s no small wonder over 22,000 people enjoy living here year round.
Served daily by major airlines, visitors easily connect to Whitehorse from any city in the world, but travel to Yukon by RV to enjoy the spectacular scenery en route. Whitehorse was a key location in the gold rush of the late 1800s and visitors can still see and visit the SS Klondike, a sternwheeler boat that ferried passengers along the scenic and historic route prospectors and writers traveled.
Festivals and special events are a central part of the culture of Whitehorse. From February’s annual Yukon Quest International Sled Dog race between Whitehorse and Fairbanks, Alaska, to the Solstice Celebrations in June, activities are sure to please all RVers. And don't forget the Northern Lights - from late summer until spring, these jumping and sometimes crackling bands of light have been seen in yellows, blues, purples, reds, and all colors of the rainbow.
Outdoor activities abound in Whitehorse in any season. Go in summer for historical walking tours, wildlife tours, hiking, canoeing, and more. (The wooden fish ladder on the Whitehorse Fishway is a good place to see nature at work,). In the winter, hundreds of kilometers of ski and snowshoeing trails surround the city.
