Day Trips

Have an extra day for adventuring in Whitehorse? 

Our Yukon adventure experts would love to add some more fun into your Yukon trip, whether business or pleasure. Fortunately, in the peak of summer the long light of the midnight sun gives you plenty of time to explore. 

No matter what time of year there is a day trip for you

The city of Whitehorse provides plenty of nearby trails or water-based day trips where you can relax and enjoy the beauty of this natural paradise. Spend a half to full day floating by canoe, raft or kayak on the meandering Yukon River. Step it up a notch and add a few whitewater thrills on the Takhini or Tatshenshini rivers. Jump into a boat and cruise from point to point on a day trip in the Southern Lakes.

Ride a Jeep or hike through mining ruins or along historic trails from the Klondike Gold Rush days. Spend an afternoon fishing with a guide who knows where and when the fish like to rise. For those who enjoy their speed, try mountain biking Grey Mountain's hundreds of kilometers of trails which begin two minutes from downtown Whitehorse: an exhilarating experience with stunning views.
