“For anyone who’s never been to the Yukon, I’m not even going to try to describe the scenery. Sufficie it to say that the Yukon is 207,000 square miles of suck-your-breath-out photo opportunity.” - Arthur Black

Located in the southern half of the Yukon near the British Columbia border, Whitehorse is a burgeoning metropolis with about 25,000 people and all the comforts of home. In city limits, visitors can embrace the local arts scene and shop to their heart's content.

Whitehorse borders the Yukon River, which travelers can explore by raft, canoe or tour boat. Adventurers can hike the trails surrounding the historic Yukon River, where the hikers might find evidence, such a stone tools, of the ancestors of the two first nations that claim Whitestone in their territory. The Kwanlin Dun and Ta'an Kwachian have lived in the region since the last Ice Age. The Ta'an chief was the first leader of the First Nations to request reparation for the invasion of gold seekers, which resulted in a reserve of their traditional village site at Lake Laberge.

Whether visitors want to see the region's beauty, discover the historic treasures, or embrace the city's culture, summer is the best time to visit this lively city. Whitehorse has an average high of about 65 F in summer and 15 F in winter. So, remember to pack the sweaters.
