There are a handful of ways to get to the Yukon and every passage is just as exciting as the next. Take the scenic route on the road, look down at the beautiful landscape from the sky, cruise through the ocean on a vessel of your choice or if you’re up for it, walking, biking, skiing, parachuting and swimming are also options.
The Yukon is a big place, measuring an astounding 482,443 km². That’s hard to picture, but trust us, it’s big. Luckily, from campers and RVs to ferries and trains, there are lots of ways to see everything this great land has to offer, so sit back and enjoy the ride.
Businesses in the Yukon can help you with anything under the sun. And since this is the land of the midnight sun, they’ve got a lot of overtime hours ahead of them.
It’s possible to explore the Yukon by the seat of your pants, but for those who’d prefer the seat of a tour bus or canoe, there are plenty of packages to choose from.
