Whitehorse Vacation Packages, Tours & Travel Experiences
Allow yourself to be transported to the Gold Rush days with a trip to Whitehorse, the capital of Yukon. Legend has it that this northern city got its name when gold miners thought the untamed rapids of Miles Canyon resembled the billowing manes of charging white horses. Wild landscapes await you in Whitehorse, whose vast backyard includes stunning glacial lakes, dramatic mountains, and alpine meadows. In winter months, all you need to do is look up to catch the magical performance of the Aurora Borealis with its green auras dancing across the star-studded sky.
Even if you head north for a quaint nature getaway, you can’t miss the melodies of Whitehorse’s lively local community, making up for what it lacks in size with a vibrant arts scene. First Nations legends and Gold Rush history are embedded in plenty of public murals, sculptures, and visual art displays around the city, giving you a first-hand perspective of life in the Great North.
Music floats throughout the town streets from local cafes and the Yukon Arts Centre, where artists can share their own narratives with pride. Whitehorse’s culinary scene is transforming at a rapid pace, offering an eclectic mix of craft breweries, fusion cuisines, and an organic farm-to-table movement. Learn about the city’s roots at the S.S. Klondike sternwheeler or the Yukon Beringia Interpretive Centre, tracing local history from the end of the last Ice Age up until now.
