Yukon and the Northwest Territories holidays

The Yukon and the Northwest Territories represent Canada's wild frontier, with rugged landscapes, immense wilderness and a colourful history of Inuits, traders and gold prospectors.

Prolific Wildlife

The population is small, the landscape vast and the wildlife prolific – in the Yukon Territory alone moose outnumber humans by nearly 2-1! You may also be lucky enough to see caribou, wolves and grizzly bears throughout both territories, as well as the nimble Dall sheep. Meanwhile the human inhabitants of these remote lands are a fascinating mix of First Nations people, descendants of intrepid pioneers and adventurers, each with their own fascinating story to share.

Historical Cities

The gateway cities of Whitehorse in the Yukon and Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories offer all the amenities you would expect, whilst the Yukon’s Dawson City is forever synonymous with the Klondike Gold Rush. All retain a close-community feel and are proud to highlight their unique and colourful past, with historic buildings and fascinating museums providing a useful introduction to the region. More like towns than cities, they are dwarfed by the surrounding wilderness and nearby national parks, mountains, lakes and rivers are all easily accessible; try your hand at dog-sledding or snowmobiling and marvel at majestic displays of the northern lights overhead.

Epic Landscapes

Kluane National Park is larger than Wales, yet occupies just a small corner of the Yukon – such is the scale of this vast wilderness territory. Here you will find Mt Logan, Canada’s highest peak, along with the countless glaciers that form part of the world’s largest non-polar icefield. The unmistakable granite peaks of Tombstone Territorial Park provide a dramatic backdrop for keen hikers, whilst further north Ni'iinlii Njik Territorial Park provides the unique opportunity to witness ice-covered grizzlies fishing for salmon. Across the border the Northwest Territories are fragmented by endless lakes, dominated by the Mackenzie Mountains.

Iconic Landmarks

The Dempster Highway, Tombstone National Park and Great Slave Lake evoke images of one of the world’s last unspoiled wilderness regions. With uncrowded roads and a warm friendly welcome, here you really can get right off the beaten track and immerse yourself into the wild beauty of Canada.
