Duration: 3 Days
Getting Started
Season: Winter

Visit in winter and discover Whitehorse with the locals. Explore galleries and museums, sample Yukon cuisine, and take in a festival. Soak up the sunshine that fills the short days. Experience northern lights gleaming in a dark, starry sky. Meet fascinating characters and explore a vibrant city that does winter right. 

Day 1 – The Capital City

Settle in at your hotel or B&B, and then start at the Visitor Information Centre to discover all that Whitehorse has to offer. In one direction the riverside Millennium Trail leads to a view of the SS Klondike; go the other way and discover the MacBride Museum. In between is the head of bustling Main Street.

Day 2 – Clear Air and Fresh Vibes

Plan to join scheduled sightseeing, outdoor activities and adventure tours, or explore on your own. Try dogsledding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and ice fishing. Learn about Yukon First Nations culture. Enjoy the live music venues. Dine on fine local cuisine and then get ready for a late night of watching for northern lights.

Day 3 – Arts and Cultural Attractions

Whitehorse has many museums, cultural centres and attractions, and most of our lively cafés, shops and galleries are open all year. As you stroll through the shops, along with local artwork, keep an eye out for local culinary products: locally harvested tea blends, fresh-roasted coffee, artisan beer and spirits, jams and jellies – what others can you find?
