Best time to visit May - Sept

While building the Alaska Highway, a soldier posted a sign pointing home. Others followed, and decades later the Sign Post Forest is one of many must-see stops for Yukon travellers.

Here every road is the scenic route, dotted with historic communities and cultural attractions. The legendary Alaska, Top of the World, Klondike and Dempster highways are a driver’s dream. On every route, you’ll meet friendly locals ready to share a smile and a story.

Come take a road trip under the midnight sun, where you can ignore your GPS and your watch and let adventure be your guide.

Alaska Highway

Once called “the biggest and hardest job since the Panama Canal” the Alaska Highway was constructed between March and October 1942 by a workforce of 16,000. Built in order to link the US Mainland with Alaska and improve strategic war efforts during WW2, the highway starts in Dawson Creek, British Columbia and travels through the Yukon to Delta Junction in Alaska.
