Don't miss the Annual Crane & Sheep Viewing Festival and one of North America's most spectacular migrations of the Sandhill Cranes!

At the beginning of May, Sandhill Cranes migrate to nesting grounds in western Alaska and North-eastern Siberia. Visitors can see the birds funnel through the Yukon's Tintina Trench, swooping, soaring and riding thermals right over the Town of Faro.

The festival also showcases Fannin sheep, tours of the area, natural history talks, and family entertainment.
