Dawson City Vacation Packages and Tours
If Dawson City is on your radar, you’ve already struck gold. This former mining town is a lively gem cut in Yukon’s rugged outback, featuring colourful frontier-style architecture set against the breathtaking slopes of the Klondike Valley. As a major base during the Klondike Gold Rush, walking through its streets feels like a blast from the past as you imagine the frontiersmen and miners who once passed through with hopes of making it big. It even features a still-functioning gold panning attraction, where you can see how you would have fared during the old golden days.
Dawson City is one of the largest watering holes in Northern Canada for miles, making it an eclectic mix of friendly folks who come to dine and drink. For a small town, Dawson City hosts an impressive amount of quality restaurants, bars, and shops that support regional creators and ingredients. Sip on Yukon-brewed beers as you stretch out on a sunny patio after a day of hiking while sporting your new Klondike jewelry. Pubs with live music stretch into the night, and you can test your luck at Diamond Tooth Gerties Gambling Hall, Canada’s first casino.
There’s plenty of adventure to be had in Dawson City’s vast backyard, from rafting on the Klondike River to hiking up to the viewpoint of Midnight Dome. In the colder months, turn your gaze upwards to catch the magical lights of the Aurora Borealis dancing across the sky, which can be spotted without having to leave town.
