Yukon Guide


Yukon conjures up images of moose, adventure and immense natural beauty. This western Canadian wilderness offers more wildlife than locals and landscapes and First Nations peoples that have remained largely unchanged over time. Hunting and trapping, wildlife spotting, canoeing and mountain climbing, and simply taking in the breathtaking beauty of the outdoors are high on every visitor’s itinerary, with Whitehorse and Dawson City the best jumping-off points for Yukon adventures.

Hiring a Vehicle

Leading suppliers, such as Budget, Enterprise and National, as well as numerous local suppliers, have a presence in Whitehorse, with pick ups possible at the airport or from depots in the city. Car rental in Yukon is not widely available elsewhere in the territory. To secure the most competitive rates, compare car hire prior to arrival.

Transport Options

Whitehorse International Airport is the main gateway, serving flights to Canadian cities Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary, and Fairbanks, Alaska. Additionally, there are airports at Dawson City, Inuvik and Old Crow, with the latter only accessible by air. Major roads include the Alaska Highway (which connects Dawson Creek, British Columbia, with Fairbanks, Alaska), the Haines Highway, the Klondike Highway and the Dempster Highway. Ferries and cruise ships often stop in Yukon en route to Alaska.

Car Hire Driving Tips in Yukon

While all of Yukon’s main highways are paved, slippery road conditions are common during adverse weather conditions, making driving at a distance from other vehicles and observing local speed limits recommended when touring with car hire in Yukon. Distances between destinations can be vast so plan regular rest stops. Driving with your headlights on at all times is compulsory.

Not to be Missed!

Over 300 miles the northwest of the territorial capital is the gold rush town of Dawson, a National Historic Site. But the real pleasure of driving in Yukon is to be found in remote, wildlife-rich areas such as Signpost Forest (near Watson Lake), with its 70,000-plus signs, and the southwestern Kluane National Park, part of a World Heritage site and home to moose, caribou and grizzly bears.

Weather & Tourist Seasons

The subarctic climate of much of the territory is characterized by short, warm summers and long, cold and snowy winters. The mountains and the southeast receive the most rain, with the Arctic coast generally dry. Winters are coldest in the north, around Old Crow, where temperatures commonly drop to -36°C, while Whitehouse receives some of the mildest weather, with summer temperatures of around 20°C. Late May to September is a good period for outdoor summer activities while October to April is the best time to witness the Northern Lights and to partake in winter sports.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?
