An Outdoorsman's Paradise

If you are an outdoors man than the Yukon is the place for you. The Yukon is a vast wilderness and can be regarded as a paradise for those who love the great outdoors. For you, the Yukon has it all. It is a great place to go fishing, hunting, hiking, or wildlife viewing. Kluane National Park is one of the great parks in North America with superb hiking and challenging mountain climbing. It is the home of the highest mountains in Canada. As for cities and towns, well lets just say there is not much in the way urban life here with just two large towns, Whitehorse and Dawson City, in all of the Yukon.
I visited the Yukon in the summer of 1992 when a close friend of mine was living there. If found the whole experience to very rewarding and I highly recommend a visit for anyone who desires to get away from it all.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great scenery, fantastic fishing and hiking.
  • Cons:The mosquitos will eat you to death.
  • In a nutshell:One of the World's Greatest Wildernesses

    Thanks for a glimpse of this isolated territory! It truly must be one of the last areas of real wilderness...thanks for your tips.

    The Yukon is indeed one of the last frontiers of Canada!

    Such great (RECENT) memories, visiting your page!! 2 things: I got there BEFORE the mosquitoes (late may), at least in Dawson/Whitehorse... Also, the Dawson ferry is FREE & very regular (never had to wait 1/2 an hour...) But it's also LOUD, esp. at night!

    Looks like a wonderful wilderness area. I wouldn't want to go there in the winter, though. Have fun in China.

    Paul, what a well written group of pages! Insightful, informative, helpful, humorous [in spots], and well written. Your photos certainly add to the "flavor" of the Yukon Territory.

    I saw Alaska once in September and no mosquitos. Would love to go up that way again via Canada. Hope to get a 5th wheel trailer in a couple years to venture back to the wilderness. How small you must have felt in that mamoth territory.
