North. The word gets used pretty loosely. Often, someone else’s north is somewhere south of the Yukon. And even here, Whitehorse is not truly north. To go all the way north, you want the Dempster Highway.

You’ll drive through the most amazing, pristine and awe-inspiring landscapes on earth, from boreal forest valleys and rivers, through mountain ranges and over endless rolling tundra hills. On to and beyond the Arctic Circle, to the Northwest Territories and even beyond that, if you connect to the newly opened Inuvik Tuktoyaktuk Highway, to the shores of the Arctic Ocean.

Yukon Wild operators can reveal the True North to you on a guided tour up the Dempster with numerous options to suit your abilities and interests, from camping to hotel stays, hiking, flightseeing and side trips, in the endless summer days or under winter’s northern lights.

See the North, the True North – your own Ultima Thule.
