Gateway to Alaska
Beaver Creek, home of the White River First Nations and the most westerly community in Canada, is the Yukon's gateway to Alaska. On the Alaska Highway at the 141st meridian, Beaver Creek lies around 300 km northwest of Haines Junction and is 18 degrees further west than Vancouver, sharing the same longitude as islands in the South Pacific. Its location next to the Canada/US border makes the historic community of Beaver Creek a natural stopping point for visitors travelling along the Alaska Highway. It has a range of helpful visitor services including comfortable accommodation, friendly local restaurants and a Yukon Visitor Information Centre.
