Explore Whitehorse, the capital and the only city in the Yukon region

Journey across the  magnificent White Pass & Yukon Route Railway

All aboard the Yukon route! See and feel the wide wild world of northwest Canada with our exhilarating package to Whitehorse. The capital of Yukon Territory is brimming with beautiful features as a modern metropolis and as a wilderness land sitting conveniently near the banks of Yukon River, embraced by the glorious summit of Grey Mountain, Haeckel Hill and Golden Horn Mountain.

In this package, you'll enjoy a coach tour of Whitehorse, soaking in the sight of Old Log Church, Log Skyscraper, Fish Ladder, SS Klondike, Miles Canyon and Miles Canyon Lookout before taking on the scenic South Klondike Highway to Fraser, BC. In Day 3, you'll travel back in time along the rails of Gold Rush era with a 28-mile rail excursion along the White Pass & Yukon Route Railway. Built in 1898 during the Klondike Gold Rush, the railway is an engineering marvel - a narrow gauge railroad constructed right in the sharp tight curves of the White Pass. Completed against all odds, the resulting masterpiece still stands today as a bucket list adventure - one you shouldn't miss.

This tour departs from Whitehorse every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday.
