Whitehorse is an ideal place to use as a base for exploring the remote Yukon Territory. Distances between destinations are vast, though self-drive is the best means to explore this sparsely populated area of Northern Canada. In addition, it is a fabulous way to see Yukon's stunning natural beauty and to discover the magnificent Kluane National Park or to gaze at the Aurora Borealis. Hire an RV and have a rewarding holiday experience.
Whitehorse is the capital city of Yukon, a laid-back city that sits along the Yukon River and is surrounded by three mountains. It is connected to the rest of the territory by the Alaska Highway and the Klondike Highway, as well as to neighbouring Alaska, Alberta and British Columbia. There is much to see in Whitehorse, with many of its attractions being natural sites. Excursions can easily be made to the surrounding mountains as well as to the nearby Miles Canyon or Takhini Hot Springs and to attractions such as the mining towns of Dawson City and Watson Lake.
The Yukon Beringia Interpretive Centre, located just off of the Alaska Highway, is an impressive centre that focuses on the landmass that stretches from Siberia's Kolyma River to Canada's Mackenzie River, known as Belinga. The centre takes visitors on a trip back in time to prehistoric times, when mammoths and sabre-toothed cats roamed the land. The Yukon Transportation Museum also takes visitors on a journey through the territory's transportation history.
Whitehorse's city centre sits along the west side of the Yukon River and is quite small. The MacBride Museum, on Front Street overlooking the river, tells the story of Yukon's history. The Old Log Church is also in the city centre, now a museum filled with whaling artefacts, furnishings and decorative arts. On the south edge of the city centre sits the historical SS Klondike, a paddle steamer that used to run along the Yukon River.
Miles Canyon is a group of basaltic lava cones and flows dating back to the Pleistocene age. This stunning natural site is just minutes outside of the city centre and features basaltic walls that stand as high as 15 metres.
The Takhini Hot Springs just north of Whitehorse feature two pools at different temperatures. The natural hot springs have no sulphuric odour but do have therapeutic value. The site was originally used by the First Nations People and later became a place where the US Army relaxed during the construction of the Alaska Highway.
Robert Service Campground is just south of central Whitehorse on the banks of the Yukon River. It houses a fabulous coffee shop and facilities include hot showers, drinking water and a fire pit and picnic table at every site.
Hi Country RV Park is a holiday park that is just minutes away from the city centre. Facilities here include free Wi-Fi, laundry facilities, a general store, a gift store and fire pits at each site.
Takhini Hot Springs is just 20 minutes from Whitehorse on the grounds of the popular hot springs. Those that park their recreational vehicle here get a discount on pool admissions and have use of fire pits, BBQs and picnic tables.
Distances here are great and gas stations sparse so be sure to fill up whenever possible. It is not uncommon to see large animals on the roads in Yukon so extra caution should be taken. Like the rest of Canada, driving here is on the right-hand side and the maximum blood alcohol level for drivers is 0.05 per cent.
