In the summer, the extremely long daylight hours mean maximum time for exploring. While there is no shortage of places to experience here, many come specifically for Yukon’s iconic rivers and picturesque cold-water lakes.
The Tatshenshini River is one of the Yukon’s four Canadian Heritage Rivers. The Tat, as it’s affectionately known, flows past towering mountain ranges, spectacular glaciers and waterfalls, and through dramatic canyons and white water rapids.
The Tutshi River is another favourite. It serves up gorgeous scenery and some of the best white water in the world. Accessed from the Klondike Highway South, even the drive out to the river includes beautiful views and the possibility of spotting wildlife.
The North has unbeatable hiking into beautiful backcountry. Kluane National Park includes the world’s largest non-polar icefields and Canada’s highest peak.
Tombstone Territorial Park is one of Yukon’s many treasured, protected places. Its wild terrain, breathtaking views, abundant wildlife and interesting flora and fauna make it a photographer’s dream.
There are more moose than people in the Yukon, and like many of the area’s two-legged residents, they are at home near the water. Moose are good swimmers and include aquatic plants in their diet, so it’s not uncommon for sharp-eyed canoers and kayakers to spot one of these magnificent animals.
Stick to the lakes and river adventures, or add hiking, horseback riding or mountain biking to your itinerary. You’ll be treated to the summer’s spectacular midnight sun regardless how you spend your time here.
The farther north you go, the higher and longer the sun stays in the sky. In more northern areas, the sun dips just low enough to touch the horizon before beginning to rise for another amazing day of limitless exploring opportunities.
